Contested races

Bravo to the candidates for stepping up and giving the voters contested primary races in some cases.

In particular, hat's off to three Democrats for district attorney. I'd like to see three Republicans face off in the primary too.

And hat's off to two Penn State students who are running for State College Borough Council. One, a conservative Republican, would really bring some diversity to that all-Democrat group.

I'm glad to see the students run and glad to see all of the candidates all over the county take part in the process.

We look forward to covering the races and in some cases asking the candidates to answer questions for our readers.
