League of Women Voters (NorCo) Candidates Forum


The Lehigh County and Northampton County chapters of the League of Women Voters have been great partners of Renew Lehigh Valley on many of our initiatives. The involved members of both chapters have helped with past RenewLV events and their long-standing support for the Lehigh Valley Health Department has been pivotal in pushing the Regional Health Initiative along. Indeed, community education is the League’s forte.

In this spirit of community education, I would like to highlight an upcoming event hosted by the League of Women Voters in Northampton County. The League is sponsoring a Candidates Forum on Tuesday, May 4th, at 7:00 pm at the Wind Gap Fire Station, 111 North Broadway in Wind Gap. The forum will feature the candidates in the 137th State Legislative District in the May 18th Primary.

137th State Legislative District candidates will include —
Democrats: Charles Dertinger, Frank Scagliotta
Republicans: Joe Emrick, Donald Albanese, Nick Sabatine

The 137th District is currently represented by Richard Grucela, who is not running for re-election. It includes the boroughs of Bangor, East Bangor, Nazareth, Portland, Roseto, Stockertown and Tatamy, and the townships of Forks, Lower Mount Bethel, Palmer, Upper Mount Bethel, Upper Nazareth and Washington.

There will be an opportunity for questions from the audience, so come and let your voices be heard!

Directions to the Wind Gap Fire Co.: From the Wind Gap exit of Route 33, turn north onto Route 512 (Broadway) and go almost 1.2 miles north. The fire company is on the right, across from the post office and just past the intersection of the Turkey Hill traffic light.

For information, call the League of Women Voters – Northampton County at 610-252-1339.

Any questions you would like to ask these candidates? Post them below and we’ll pass on the message to the League.
