GettysBLOG endorsements for Tuesday's election!

Well, it’s time again for Remember in November!

We’re back with out endorsements for some of the more important races in Adams County.

We’ll start with the County Commissioners. Some good folks here. We recommend the following:

Randy Phiel. Randy is a long time resident of the area, a retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer, and a man active in his community for many years. Randy is solid, and did a fine job as a Supervisor in Cumberland Township where they could use five of him to staff the board.

Paul Kellet is a man for the people. His lawsuit against the current County Commissioners was for the people, to rein in the “wretched excesses” visited on the public of Adams County by the outgoing [thankfully] board of commissioners.

Jim Martin is simply too good a man to pass up. You have to vote for a guy who devotes his life to service, both public and private.

For commissioner, then, we endorse, Randy Phiel, Paul Kellett, and Jim Martin.

For the school board. This is easy. Do not vote for the one incumbent who is running. That is Sally Michael. The incoming school board should be completely new faces. Therefore, we endorse William Hewitt, Denise Weldon-Siviy, Katherine Hewitt, Kristin Woodward, and Jim Henderson.

In Cumberland Township, vote for anyone except Deb Golden. IT is time for new blood here. The same old excuses for higher taxes, the same old excuses for not having enough money. They need to look at how much money they have spent on their own property, which has become a small kingdom for the Supervisors, and a large sandbox for the men who run the heavy equipment. Most days, and especially in the winter, they violate their own noise ordinance. In the winter, they start their equipment at 6:30-6:54 in the morning so the equipment will be nice and warm by the time they finish their coffee and donuts inside the building. Now there’s a place to start to cut costs and save some taxpayer money.

And in the Borough…in the First Ward, we recommend against the ex reporter who is running for office there. He got too much enjoyment out of running a local official out of town, and got in too deep with Levan and his motorcycle heavies. Not the kind of person you want sitting in borough council meetings on your behalf.

We used to think that the voters get what they deserve. That was naïve. We have seen too many “good people” change their spots once they get elected. This is why we have the recommendations against in some cases. At least in those case we have a negative record to go by.

Our hopes are high. The Commissioners will all be new regardless of who gets elected. The school board will be new if the voters are careful not to vote for Sally Michael. Five new people are required to undo all that the past two school boards have done.

Good luck at the polls. Don’t stay home and let others vote when you have the right, and the duty to vote. As much as these elected officials in Adams County have come under fire the past several years, you have the obligation to vote to make sure no bozos get elected.

Vote on Tuesday, November 8!!

We support the Roadmap to Reform! “Be steadfast in your anger, be sure in your convictions, be moved by the right and certainty that abuse of power must be defeated at every turn; uphold Liberty as the just reward of a watchful people, and let not those who have infringed upon that Liberty steal it away from you. Never loosen your grip on Liberty!" -- GettysBLOG
