Election Debate

On Tuesday, candidates for the vacated State House seat in Nazareth left by retiring Rep. Grucella, met to discuss topics. Democrat Charles Dertinger and Republican Joe Emrick met at Nazareth HS for a debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters, according to an article in the Morning Call (read it here).

Dertinger is an electrician who lost his County Council seat in the last election. Emrick is a school teacher from Lower Moreland High School who currently serves on the Upper Nazareth Board of Supervisors.

The article really didn’t address too many issues. Emrick wants to ‘clean-up Harrisburg’ and be more tax friendly, Dertinger wants to close corporate loop-holes so taxes aren’t lost to other states.
