No need for the Northampton Republicans to spend one cent to get a Republican to win the Tax Collector race in November. Shades of Harry Fawkes, the Republicans in Doylestown must be ecstatic because the Democrats of Northampton Township reached across the aisle and selected Barbara Bucknum, a lifelong Republican to be on the Democrat ballot in November.
This is how to bring a township together. The Republicans in Northampton can vote for Barbara because she’s a Republican. The Democrats can vote for Barbara because she’s on the Democrat ballot. This is the nicest thing that’s happened in Northampton Politics ever.
