Election Day, LaRue shooting and Earth Day

Get-out-to-vote notes ... As you probably know, Tuesday is Primary Election Day in Pennsylvania. The marquee race is the Democratic presidential contest featuring Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Sadly, neither candidate opted to visit Linglestown.

The only contested primary for a local office is the Democratic state Senate race between Judy Hirsh and Alvin Q. Taylor. They are competing to challenge longtime incumbent Jeffrey Piccola in the November election. Below are links to information about Hirsh and Taylor:

* Two Democratic candidates call selves agents of change, The Patriot-News, 4/10/08

* WGAL TV-8 interview, part 1

* WGAL TV-8 interview, part 2

* YouTube video of Alvin Q. Taylor campaigning in Harrisburg along ticket line for an Obama rally, 3/29/08

State Rep. Ron Marsico is uncontested on the Republican ballot. No Democratic candidates are on the ballot.
