Preserve the valley you love and depend on...

Here's my thinking: Paul Knupp voted to change the zoning ordinance, eliminating the RA and conservation districts, and thereby allowing fracking in most of the township...meaning that Ligonier Valley will become industrialized. Mr. Knupp refused to explain his thinking and never asked any tough questions about the fracking process, despite the huge implications of the issue.

We need to support candidates who believe in good government, protection of the environment, and preservation of the valley: Write in Randy Mollomo, M-O-L-L-O-M-O on the Democratic ticket, and spell it carefully. The valley's future depends on better supervisors, for one thing.
