Tupone made a name for himself, and not in a good way, when he was part of the Panto Parking Police. Several lawyers felt they were targeted by him, which is hardly the kind of conduct you want to see in a judge. Tupone then bounced around in the county. First, he was a 911 dispatcher. Then an elections clerk. Most recently,. he is an assessor. Along the way, he's tried to get himself appointed as Controller. He stormed out of Council chambers when passed over, which is rather injudicious.
Tupone is being pushed by the Bethlehem Tp GOP Committee.
