Linglestown Gazette: Campaign pollution

Campaign pollution

I hate to say it, but the campaign for the state Senate seat that represents Lower Paxton Twp. has turned into a pissing match between longtime Republican incumbent Jeffrey Piccola and his Democratic challenger Judy Hirsh of Susquehanna Twp.

The candidates have traded highly negative campaign mailers in recent weeks, and they apparently continued their childish squabbling last night in a debate held in Derry Twp.

Ugh times infinity ...

I'd fire them both if I could. Is this the level of professionalism we should expect from one of them over the coming years?

And the waste of all of those trees...

When I visited Judy Hirsh's website a few weeks ago and viewed two of her videos involving her family...I was impressed and still skeptical - THIS is why!

When she wanted to collect food for those in need and acted as if she had the interests of residents at heart...I was impressed and still skeptical - THIS is why!

And guess what? The Republican Party caved in and joined the potty-mouth promotional part-ay.

Shame on you both. Sen. Piccola: to have 30 years under your belt and insist on continuing this behavior gets us nowhere!

And "family mom" Judy Hirsh: What kinds of values are you teaching your children? I thought you were going to be different - you championed change but thank God you revealed yourself before Election Day.

Trees need not continue to fall for your antics. Shame on you both for your misguided agendas and selfish behavior.

Interesting tidbit ...

During the debate, Hirsh defended property taxes as a way to fund public education. Meanwhile, Piccola has offered a plan – that went nowhere – to eliminate school property taxes in favor of a sales tax increase.

Hirsh's position is an interesting one since most Pennsylvanians want to ditch school property taxes in their current form.

Well, I don't know who to vote for. I really don't like either of them.

I do agree with Piccola that we should have a constitutional convention, but that doesn't bring me to his camp. And Hirsh really hasn't done or said anything to get me to vote for her. She's running for state Senate and I've never even seen her.

But, I've never seen Piccola either. I've met him on a number of occasions in the past, however.

I might just go in and vote for "Constitutional Convention".

I think I've see that Constitutional Convention dude hanging out at Roasters. :)

On a serious note, I'm compiling info and links for a Election Guide post.
