Westmoreland GOP spin
I'll give the local Republicans credit for one thing — their ability to spin. They certainly have been learning from their masters at the national GOP about how to present as fact completely baseless and irrational arguments, such as the one offered by letter-writer Rich Schachte (“Allegheny: Pay Westmoreland heed,” Feb. 22).
I trust voters will see through this nonsense and support Christina O'Brien for Westmoreland County prothonotary based on her record of stellar service. She is a proven leader in our community who has modernized and made more efficient this important row office. She's also a strong advocate for women and women's issues at a time that we need more women involved in government.
Christina O'Brien has earned re-election. Manufacturing reasons to support someone else is just spin. Let's leave that to the pros in Washington, D.C.
