Dave Breidinger, NTRC Chairman, has set the record straight regarding the Tax Collector in the Township. In today’s BCCT, Dave’s Letter to the Editor truthfully outlines the events. It’s sad that others continue to be proven untruthful.
After holding a fundraiser on Aug. 3, the Northampton Democrat’s candidate for tax collector suddenly dropped out of the race. Desperate to find someone to replace him, they drafted Mrs. Bucknum to run, once again in conflict with her earlier announcement and desire to retire. Many question the impropriety of the fundraiser in what at best can be described as a “bait and switch” scheme. Clearly, Northampton Democrat bosses are attempting to fracture the unity of Republicans. Their scheme is offending and alienating independent voters, Democrats, and Republicans alike.
