Most people reading the CDT have regretfully observed the chaos in our county government. The court, the commissioners and lower-level staff have made the kind of news no one likes to read. Although voters have disparate opinions about any particular issue, most would agree that the status quo is far from ideal. Change should be welcome.
Given our peculiar system of electing those who govern the county, there is only one way to move our Board of Commissioners to a better place. Invest one of your precious votes in the only major party candidate who isn’t an incumbent — Mark Higgins.
It doesn’t really matter if you’re a Republican or a Democrat, a tree-hugging liberal or a rock-ribbed conservative. If you would like things to change in Centre County government, vote for Higgins along with your favorite current commissioner.
