Speaker James Jones fired up the 130 or so Delaware County Patriots at tonight’s meeting at Kings Mills in Aston with a pre-election battle speech about the importance of Tuesday’s election.
Jones, a Bucks County businessman and Navy veteran of the Vietnam and Gulf wars, and the Beirut conflict, described how taxes and corruption are endangering the nation.
Jones praised fellow small businessman Dee Adock who is running against incumbent Democrat Allyson Schwartz in Pennsylvania’s 13 District congressional race. Jones said he attends church with Adock and described him as a friend.
Jones is owner and CEO of QSI Consulting, a human resources firm. He lost to Mike Fitzpatrick in this year’s Republican 8th District congressional primary. He is endorsing Fitzpatrick in the race against incumbent Democrat Patrick Murphy.
The crowd was a bit bigger than the one Democrat senate nominee Congressman Joe Sestak got for a rally Sunday in Media , which is the heart of his district.
And they had to pay a $5 admission fee.
And nobody was protesting them.
The event began with the Pledge of Allegiance and since no one objected it is unlikely that there were any members of the League of Women Voters in the audience.
