The LuLac Edition #2809, May 17th, 2015

PRIMARY ELECTION PREVIEW 2015

HAZLETON MAYOR’S RACE
GOP Councilman Jeff Cusat and incumbent Mayor Joe Yannuzzi.
Democrats Jack Mundie and Grace Cuozzo.
The city of Hazleton is really at a crossroads and one has to wonder if the four candidates running for Mayor are up to the job. On the Republican side Mayor Joe Yannuzzi is facing off against Jeff Cusat. Yannuzzi knows the nuts and bolts of the city but one wonders if those cogs and wheels are getting rusty.
Jeff Cusat seems to be an alternative but there have been no specifics other than not doing what Yannuzzi has done. He has said that the city administration must be more diligent in collecting taxes and fees that are owed.
On the Democratic side Jack Mundie is facing off against Grace Cuozzo. Mundie has been on Council for 12 years and is opposed by Grace Cuzo who lost out to the Mayor by less than 200 votes the last time. Mundie has the experience, Cuzo has the fire.
On WYLN TV 35 I picked a Mundie VS. Yanuzzi face off, Gary Perna picked a Cuozzo VS. Cusat face off. We’ll see who was right.
Whatever the outcome, third party candidates are looming.Tune in Tuesday night for the results.
