Vote Shea in Armstrong

| Thursday, May 14, 2015, 8:55 p.m.

For the past 3½ years, I have served with Anthony Shea on the Leechburg Area School Board. We elected him to be our vice president and a district representatives to the Lenape Technical School operating committee.

He is hardworking, loyal, trustworthy, dedicated and supportive of the initiatives and programs of our district and those of Lenape.

A retired U.S. Air Force major, Shea's focus is always, “What is best for the educational needs of our children?” His integrity, honesty and passion for his board responsibilities are to be admired and emulated.

It has been an honor to work with him on educational endeavors. However, the time has come for him to serve as an Armstrong County commissioner.

Armstrong citizens deserve to reap the benefits of Shea's experience, compassion and diligence, just as the Leechburg Area and Lenape students have. I know his focus will be, “What is best for the citizens of Armstrong County?”

When voting for Armstrong County commissioner, please strongly consider the character, work ethic and perseverance of Anthony Shea.

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.
