Pete Peterson has informed us that the GOP Delaware County Council ticket has been endorsed by The Delaware County Committee of the Philadelphia Building and Construction Trades Council.
That’s probably not going to increase its standing among my readers.
The ticket is all incumbent: Colleen Morrone of Concord, John McBlain of Aldan, and Mike Culp of Springfield, who is serving out the remainder of new state Sen. Tom McGarrigle’s term.
Union endorsement aside, I’m going to have no problem hitting the button for them this November. Complain all you can about the state and federal Republicans but Delco is one of the better run Pennsylvania counties.
Pete points out that Delaware County has an unemployment rate lower than the national average and is experiencing job growth. The county Republicans deserve undeniable credit for this as it was the policies of the other party that almost sent it into the tank.
I’ve actually worked with McBlain on an issue and found him to be serious, decent and dedicated.
The ticket is unopposed in the May 19 primary and may very well be unopposed in the General Election on Nov. 3. For the record, the Dems should be allowed on the ballot.
