Well, the Express Times reported on Sunday, April 22, 2012, that there are a number of possible candidates considering running toward - and for the Northampton County Executive elected position.
Who is right for the position? Hmmm...not sure - what We The People know is that whoever decides to actually pursue the position and acquires it, he/she MUST be aware that We The People will hold him/her accountable. Any performance less than in the interest of the people will result in a confrontation with their boss - We The People.
How do we feel about some of these candidates - well, we're not there yet. However, we are watching and listening. We will possibly take a position on a candidate for this position when the time arrives. One thing is for sure...whom ever we decide to stand by MUST certainly be prepared to make Gracedale work.
For your general information - the following are named as possible candidates:
Bethelehem Mayor - John Callahan (D)
Easton Mayor - Sal Panto (D)
Former State Rep. - Rich Grucela (just a possibility) (D)
County Councilman - Lamont McClure (D)
County Councilman - John Cusick (R)
Incumbent - John Stoffa (D) - Wisely has expressed that he will not seek re-election...if he did, we would certainly work hard to insure his derailment.
We will refrain from endorsing any of these Honorable men at this point in time...but rest assured, we will at the appropriate time reveal our choice.
