Voters recently decided to oust an inept Republican governor in favor of a Democrat and to increase the number of Republicans in the General Assembly. It almost looks like a mirror image of Washington.
Let’s hope the new governor and the legislators work for the benefit of Pennsylvania, not their political bases, and help bring the commonwealth out of the Dark Ages. We do not need — or want — gridlock in Harrisburg.
Compromise is not a dirty word. It is the art of the possible.
