Read all about the candidates in The Express
LOCK HAVEN — The primary election is less than a week out and today The Express begins its pre-election coverage, offering our readers at look at the candidates from Clinton, Centre and Lycoming counties who are on the ballots Tuesday.
Here’s what we’ll spotlight each day until election day.
– Today, Express staff presents an overview of the ballots for Clinton County voters, which have more than 100 offices open, along with the “special ballot” for the U.S. Congress seat from Pennsylvania’s 12th District.
– On Thursday, readers will get a look at an overview of the ballots in Centre County.
– Friday’s Express will put the spotlight on candidates running for Centre County commissioner. Staff writer Chris Morelli has been busy interviewing the candidates and will tell you what they had to say about who they are and why they want to be a commissioner.
– Saturday’s paper will feature perhaps the most interesting race in Clinton County, with four Republicans and two Democrats running for county commissioner. The two Democrats, along with the top two vote getters on the Republican ballot will move on to the November General Election, when the top three vote getters will win commissioner seats. Staff reporter John Rishel sat down with each candidate to talk about their reasons for seeking election and what they feel are the most important issues.
– And on Monday, the day before the primary election, staff writer Laura Jameson will tell you all about three men who want to be Lock Haven’s next mayor. Only Democrat Joel Long is on the ballot. Two Republicans, Rick Conklin and Jeff Brinker are running write-in campaigns for the Republican nomination and a race against Long in November.
On Monday, we’ll give you a look at the race for two Jersey Shore Area School Board seats. There are five Republicans looking for the seat to represent Pine Creek Township and Avis Borough. Three more Republicans are vying for another seat on the board.
