Ilgenfritz clear choice

| Friday, April 28, 2017, 8:57 p.m.

In this year's race for Westmoreland County prothonotary, the administrator for the civil courts, one candidate stands out among the rest: Susan Ilgenfritz.

A lifelong Republican and dedicated community leader, Ilgenfritz is a business administration graduate from Robert Morris University with 20 years' experience in management, sales and customer service, top-priority qualifications setting her apart among candidates for the position.

Ilgenfritz serves on the Franklin Regional School Board, where she has served on the policy, curriculum, professional development, safety and health, and Excellence Award committees. She constantly advocates for policies that put student well-being and achievement first. A mother of four, she also serves on the host committee for Savor Pittsburgh, helping to raise awareness and money for the Magee-Womens Research Institute.

If elected, Ilgenfritz has three objectives for the prothonotary's office: fiduciary responsibility, enhanced efficiency and greatly improved customer service. She has pledged to be a full-time public servant to the citizens of Westmoreland County and to contribute to the betterment of our county.

To me, she is the clear choice in this election, and I hope you'll join me in voting for Ilgenfritz in the primary on May 16.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
