Letters to the Editor

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Dear Editor,

I am writing a letter of support for Jesse Walck as candidate for county commissioner.

As mayor I can appreciate the budgetary positions at the county seems to be in at this point. What I have seen from Jesse Walck as councilman for Summit Hill leads me to believe that he is our best option as county commissioner right now. What he has been able to do with the budget in Summit Hill by taking it from a deficit to a surplus in two years of tax cuts is exactly what this county needs.

Respectfully,

Mayor James Romankow

Dear Editor,

I will be voting for Marianne Dwyer, Frank Tamburri, and Myron Blahy as a common-sense approach for the Lehighton school board. A new way of thinking is always needed these days.

Thank you,

Terry Stroub

Dear Editor,

I have known Smith and Dellecker for many years. They are both honest, hardworking individuals. Both have backgrounds that would be an asset in running Carbon County.

Rocky Ahner is an honest person. Having spoken with him, he truly cares and listens to the people of Carbon County.

Dear Editor:

I'm writing in support of Mr. Daniel J. Blazosky's candidacy for Carbon County coroner. I have known Danny personally since our time together at Panther Valley High School from 1997-1999.

We have remained close friends, and Danny joined my extended family when he and his wife, Meghan, were married in 2008.

Danny was a successful student and athlete, both at Panther Valley High School and at Monmouth University, where he received his B.S. in business management.

Tom Gerhard is a current commissioner for Carbon County. Tom is a father, son, husband, church and community member to be proud of. In every role, Tom represents a high level of commitment and integrity.

For the past term, Tom has conducted himself with great respect for himself and his constituents.

Dear Editor,

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to the current Carbon County Board of Commissioners for their time, effort, cost, but most importantly, for their consideration toward families in our community.

Because of them, our Carbon County Courthouse & Annex Building were part of spreading autism awareness for people and families who live with autism.

They are interested in the personal as well as the political needs of our county and families that live here.

Dear Editor,

I would like to clarify my previous letter to the editor which was printed May 5.

People are mistaking my remarks about the current commissioners as an endorsement of the three to be re-elected as a team.

This is not true!

I just wanted to say my experience with them showed that I felt I was listened to by them when I had concerns about the county.

I wanted to encourage others to get involved and hold our elected officials accountable to us, the people who voted them in as our county commissioners.

Dear Editor,

I believe the voters in Carbon County need to act swiftly to take control of the runaway train. That is why I'm urging everyone to support the Smith and Dellecker Team. Property taxes are outrageous yet we're broke. Wasteful spending is out of control, and there's no end in sight. Take back Carbon County.

Fellow Citizens:

Larry Padora is the candidate I'm voting for in the election for clerk of courts. Larry Padora stepped up to the plate to serve New Ringgold on town council.

This man puts his heart and soul into the job. Aside from his official duties, he voluntarily plows snow and seals cracks in the roads. In most places, elected officials simply hire expensive contractors to do what Larry does out of the goodness of his heart.

He never asks for reimbursement for expenses. He doesn't expect a paycheck or stipend. He simply serves.

Dear Editor,

On May 19, 2015, the voters of Carbon County will be nominating candidates for county coroner. I am sure that all on the ballot are qualifed and well-known.

However, on primary day, I will be supporting one candidate. I have known him for more that 30 years. he is the consummate professional, and a licensed funeral director. He works hard at his job.

He is raising a family in Lansford, and is helping the community to be a better place to live, work and play.
