To the Editor:

I have been a registered Republican and voter in Lower Saucon Township for over 40 years and have never been as disappointed in the current Republicans on Lower Saucon Township Council as I am at the present. I am embarrassed by the chaos and division they have created in our community, not to mention the exorbitant legal expenses they have amassed for us to pay.

So, if you are a Republican and care about: Bringing our Community together, the Hellertown Library issue, the Compost Center, the Hellertown Pool, the Landfill issue, rezoning and fiscal responsibility, among others, then please vote for Kathy Pichel-McGovern in the upcoming primary on Tuesday, May 16. Remember, you do not need to use your other two votes!

Jo-Ellen P. Thomson
Lower Saucon Township
