Scott Ott (R) running for Lehigh County Commissioner.
This would be the Scott Ott of Scrappleface and PJTV: you might remember that he ran for Lehigh County Executive (Pennsylvania) last year, and came pretty close to winning. He’s running for Lehigh County Commissioner this year; there are several seats up, so Scott’s part of a team this time. Their goal is to put enough Republicans on the Commission to override the county Executive’s veto.
Speaking for myself (hopefully, not just for myself)… this is what needs to happen across the country, folks: changing the way the government does things requires not only activity on the federal level, or even the federal and state. We’ve got to get in on the process at every level, from the bottom up. Somebody’s got to do the heavy lifting, and the people doing it for the unglamorous jobs particularly deserve our attention and aid. Because if they don’t do it and if you don’t do it, who will?
And… end of sermon. Scott’s campaign website is here.
