As chairman of the Lancaster County Democratic Party, I am compelled to respond to The Lancaster News’ editorial, “Are Local Republicans Taking Over,” that appeared in the Sunday, April 18, edition. The answer to your question is no.
This is not merely a knee-jerk partisan reaction, but based on facts. In Lancaster County, every countywide office is held by a Democrat. All but one County Council seat – Council District No. 1 – is held by a Democrat.
