Letters to the Editor

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Dear Editor,

This is a letter of support for William O'Gurek, who is a candidate for Carbon County commissioner.

Bill is a man of high morals and loves his family, church, friends and public. I consider myself truly honored to consider him my friend for 35 years.

Bill has served the residents of Carbon County as the mayor of Summit Hill, prothonotary and commissioner with their best interest in mind.

On a personal note Bill truly cares for people who are in need.

I can attest to this for what he has done for my son when he was having medical issues.

Dear Editor,

There's no question in my mind that Commissioner Bill O'Gurek is the only choice for Carbon County commissioner on May 19. He is intelligent and articulate and brings to the board a wealth of knowledge that county residents can rely on.

His experience is evident; the others commissioners also rely heavily on what Bill brings to the table.

Dear Editor,

I have known Bill O'Gurek for many years. Bill coached CYO basketball with me, volunteering to help when I needed a parent to step up to the plate.

Bill is the type of person who will help when he sees help is needed without having to be told to do so. I know Bill as a man of strong faith and extraordinary family values.

In my opinion, Bill has served the Carbon County residents with dignity and diligence. Decisions made have been with the best interests of our county in mind.

He has guided us through a most tenuous economic environment.

Dear Editor,

I am proud to say that I know all three current commissioners personally and believe they deserve another term.

All three gentlemen are hardworking, knowledgeable and committed to the residents of Carbon County to make our county a better place to live, work and recreate.

The current form of county government is imperfect at best with one party or the other being in the majority.

However, our commissioners are doing the best they can with the limited resources available to them.

Dear Editor,

Since their election to office in 2011, Tom Gerhard and Wayne Nothstein have proven over and over that they are qualified to continue as Carbon County commissioners. Despite the stagnant economy and the accompanying rise in expenses, they operate Carbon County on a balanced budget.

Keeping our prison functional and preventing our court system from crumbling under the heavy workload have been a large part of their average workday. They've streamlined staff through attrition to help control expenses.

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,

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.
