Lehigh County Conservatives Score Some Big Wins in Primary Election

Lehigh County Conservatives Score Some Big Wins in Primary Election


Lehigh County conservatives scored some big wins in Tuesday’s primary election as many conservative favorites advanced to the general election.

Let’s begin by looking at the Lehigh County Commissioners race, moderate Republican Dean Browning was once again rejected by Republican voters at the polls. Many stated it was due to the 16% tax hike levied on county residents during his tenure as Chairman of the Lehigh County Commissioners. Additionally, some were turned off by what they viewed as a negative campaign run by Mr. Browning. They said Mr. Browning’s mailers appeared to distort the truth or in their opinion contained lies. Judging by the results of the election, it looks as if those tactics didn’t work for Mr. Browning to the relief of conservatives in Lehigh County and everyone that appreciates a well-run County government. Congratulations to the Results Team consisting of Amanda Holt, Brad Osborne, Marty Nothstein, and Vic Mazziotti.

Next we will examine the School Board race for East Penn School District (EPSD). A total of seven candidates cross filled for the five seats up for grabs in EPSD have formed two slates. The first is a slate of five consisting of Ken Bacher, Charles Ballard, Wally Vinovskis, Paul Champagne, and Richard Mathesz. They appear to be supported by East Penn Invested Citizens (EPIC) a group some residents say is a front group for the teachers union, and Citizens for a Strong Community (CSC) a local Political Action Committee run by failed State House candidate Patrick Slattery who is currently being sued for defamation of character and libel. The remaining two candidates Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli appear to be running as representatives of the taxpayers, parents, and students of EPSD. Through the use of a candidate’s night hosted by the League of Women Voters and EPIC, some believe an agenda was put in motion to discredit the two non-union supported candidates. Residents of East Penn were the recipients of several robo calls from CSC attempting to portray Allen and Donatelli as anti-children and anti-education. These allegations seem odd as Carol Allen was a teacher and involved in education for 30 years and Chris Donatelli is a parent who volunteered his time to assist with sports teams in the district. Again, to the relief of local conservatives the teacher’s union was unsuccessful in eliminating Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli from the race. Congratulations to Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli.

Finally, we will quickly mention the Lower Macungie Township (LMT) Commissioners race. The residents of LMT rejected to big spending policies of current Commissioner Jim Lancsek and another candidate that seemed to be associated with him, Mr. Benjamin Galiardo. After supporting an overpriced astroturf sports field, sticking LMT residents with a property tax, and voting YES for the Hamilton Crossings TIF which gave an out of state developer $7 million dollars upfront and uses a portion of the malls property taxes to repay the debt, many of the residents let Mr. Lancsek hear of their displeasure at the polls with Mr. Galiardo cut in the blast. This must have come as quite a surprise to Commissioners Ryan Conrad and Brian Higgins who also supported the same policies and both publicly endorsed Lancsek and Galiardo. I would bet both Conrad and Higgins are glad their re-election is not for another 2 years. Congratulations to Mr. Ron Bietler and current Commissioner Doug Brown in their victory. We hope they will bring limited government principles back to LMT.

However, there was one unhappy note for conservatives in Emmaus. The only real conservative on the ballot for Emmaus Borough Council, Mr. John Belin Jr., did not advance through the primary. Unfortunately, the big spending, big borrowing, big taxing incumbents Nate Brown, Lee Ann Gilbert, and Jeff Shubzda, joined by former councilman Chris DeFrain who resigned after only one month on council back in 2010 will advance to the primary.

With the exception of the disappointing news in Emmaus, conservatives in Lehigh County have something to look forward too.
