WILKES BARRE CONSPIRACY BUFFS:
THE SKY IS STILL UP THERE
Remember in the summer when City residents were making a big fuss about Tony George’s financial reports? There was even talk of a move to get George off the ballot and replace him with Tom Leighton or some other member of the Democratic Party. Well as of today Tony George is running for Mayor along with Frank Sorick. Check this link out from the Times Leader. http://timesleader.com/news/470199/candidates-for-wilkes-barre-mayor-agree-on-change-differ-on-strategies
The campaign is on, sloppy financial records or not. There are sill things to be heard from the County Election Board but if that body wants to start an electoral crisis then that's on them. Frank Sorick hasn’t made an issue of that and for some that might be enough to get him some votes.
Once more anonymous sources have tried to bedevil the George campaign. Sorick hasn’t bought into it and now we have a chance for a true debate as to where Wilkes Barre. In the meantime, if you are a resident of Wilkes Barre, start studying the issues and pick your candidate.

A new poll out suggests Donald Trump appears to be losing some luster off of his vaunted Presidential campaign. “The Donald” now is running even at about 20% with Ben Carson. What is hard to understand is how to polar personality opposites can get so much traction with disaffected voters.
