I was somewhat alarmed when I woke up last Wednesday morning and read the election results for the local races covered by the Catasauqua Press.
Voters had let a longtime Catasauqua Borough Councilwoman go.
And in Hanover Township, Lehigh County, not one, but two township council members who had served, uncontested, for many years, were gone.
North Catasauqua voters also ousted two public servants from their borough council.
Was there a conspiracy afoot by political parties to clean house?
