  • Column: Wilt throws support behind Stroble

    Iclearly lost the Republican primary election on June 14, running behind both Terry Graham and Melvin Stroble. I can accept this result, but it leaves me with the question of how to respond to my supporters asking for my recommendation as to which candidate to support in the runoff election on June 28.

  • Column: Graham seeks your vote in runoff

    Iam Terry Graham and I am running for Lancaster County Council District 1.  
    I would like to thank all the voters who voted in the primary on June 14.
    I received 46.1 percent of the vote, and the second place candidate received 22.42 percent. My support was broad-based, from both new and old residents. However, because I did not reach the 50 percent plus one threshold, there must be a runoff on June 28.

  • Column: Blackmon touts his experience, ideas

    In running for the Lancaster County Auditor’s Office, I have greatly appreciated the warm hospitality shown by so many and appreciate their concerns for a modernized auditor’s office, which truly puts taxpayers first. My background of success at managing operations for a large and growing construction company, senior management roles in the state Department of Revenue and record of community service has given me the ability to manage the auditor’s office, while bringing needed reforms and planning for future growth.
