Deb Mellish, a candidate for a seat on the Catasauqua Borough Council, says if she is elected, she will strive for a common vision, work through issues, and act ethically and in the best interest of the borough and its residents.
" I'm tired of political polarization," she says. "I believe in finding common ground, not aiming for extremes, and will draw no lines in the sand.
