Allen election generates interest

Thursday, May 16, 2013 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

In what is billed as the most watched and contested race, six candidates have waged, what many contend, is a respectful campaign.

The six candidates seek one of two supervisors seats in Allen Township.

Because the township has only one polling place – the municipal building on Indian Trail Road – voters can expect to wait in line.

All of the candidates, including two incumbents, are registered Democrats. No Republicans appear on the ballot.

Incumbent Michelle G. Drzewiecki has been granted the first slot on the ballot, followed by Dale N. Hassler, Larry Oberly, Terri Powell, Gary A. Behler and incumbent William F. Holmes.

Unless Republican voters can muster a write-in candidate, the two top vote-getters for supervisor on the Democratic ticket are virtually assured an electoral victory.

Carolyn L.S. Davis, a Democrat, is the sole candidate for the four-year term as tax collector.

Northampton County Voter Registration lists the candidates seeking the supervisor position. The elective term for supervisor is six years.
