Dem Candidates

Democratic candidates for Lower Saucon Township Council (from left) George Gress, Victoria Opthof-Cordaro and Tom Roney have been endorsed by State Rep. Bob Freeman (D-136), whose district includes part of Lower Saucon Township.

These three candidates are committed to protecting the township’s volunteer emergency responders, restoring oversight of the landfill, preserving parks and open space, promoting a respectful dialogue at council meetings that will encourage the input of residents and providing an open and civil forum for the resolution of township decisions. They believe in transparent and accountable township government.
