I have been kicked off the republican committee--months after the fact of my transgression. The committee waited this long to act to avoid any possible bad press during the election. I do have to disagree a little with their findings. The findings stated that I wrote negative comments about Mike Reese in a letter to the Latrobe Bulletin. I disagree. I purposely wrote a positive letter about Mike O'Barto and his experience. I did not once mention Mike Reese in the letter. Here is the letter. The same letter spoke well of the other republicans on the ballot.
Considering the letter I received today, I will support James Antoniono for Westmoreland County District Attorney in both the primary and general election.
As for the future, my political philosophy has not changed because I am no longer on the committee. I am still a republican.
