The Trib's whispers column claims State Senator Kim Ward is going to support democrat Carmen Pedicone next year. Anyone who knows Sen. Ward's long committment to the county GOP knows that she would not actively support a democrat against a republican for county office.
I, for one, would support Carmen Pedicone for re-election because he has earned it.
Tom Balya retiring as commissioner? That would end up being a big commissioners race. The GOP would have a great shot at winning two seats.
