Linglestown Gazette: Election eve in Linglestown

Monday, April 21, 2008

Election eve in Linglestown

* Hillary Clinton is making a campaign appearance today 10 miles away from Linglestown.

* I’m not sure why campaign volunteers for uncontested candidates in tomorrow’s primary election decided to decorate the village square with campaign signs (see picture).

* HELP NEEDED: Linglestown Gazette readers have expressed interest in holding a debate in the Linglestown area between the two candidates who will be competing to represent the area in the U.S. House of Representatives, incumbent Democratic U.S. Rep. Tim Holden and Republican challenger Toni Gilhooley, Planning needs to start now in order to get the candidates booked for a debate in late October or early November. Please send an e-mail to Gazette publisher Bill Bostic if you’re interested in finding out how you can help inform local voters about candidates in a key election this fall.

Other stuff Looks like Central Dauphin School District and some municipalities that it serves are looking for a new tax collection agency. ... New Hope Church is holding a Chicken Bar-B-Q this Saturday, April 26 from 10 am to 1 pm. ... Thanks to TruGreen Lawn Care, I've already mowed my grass two times, and will probably hack it off again tomorrow. Grass mowing will be the basis of new Gazette contest – check back for details. ... A local singer-songwriter is penning a theme song for a music video that will feature the historic village of Linglestown. Watch for its worldwide debut sometime this spring.

Even though it's not really necessary for candidates to put up signs that they are running (uncontested), it's good to do for the community. Better to look like your seeking office...or in this case, the nomination...rather than not.

Good luck signng Tim Holden up for anything that might take him off script or doesn't involve delivering a big phony check and having a few drinks afterwards.
