Vote As If Your Life Depends On It. It Does.
Today is the most important day of my life…until tomorrow.
Actually that would make a damn good motivational magnet for my refrigerator, but at this moment the phrase refers to something even more significant in my life…as well as yours…and your children…if you live in Pennsylvania…in Middletown Township…and are eligible to vote…as a Democrat.
Today my name will be offered up for perhaps the most important job in Pennsylvania… Middletown Township Auditor. Actually, it’s only the primary, but it’s where it all starts. But I can’t do it without you.
As most of you know, the Middletown Township Auditor has a long and distinguished history that goes as far back to when the Native American Middletowner Tribe settled the land between Five Points and somewhere around Neshaminy High School’s football field.
But it can’t happen without you.
Poll watchers are expecting the largest election turnout in ever in Bucks County. The poll watchers who expect that are mostly in the Republican Party and we know how many things they’ve gotten right lately.
Today, I will be facing my toughest campaign, if not my first. To be sure I am running unopposed, but unless you or anybody, including myself, come out and votes for me, I cannot move on to the November election when I expect to be running opposed. Some may scoff at the dire need for votes when running unopposed, but those are people who don’t understand the power of write in votes nor the infamous 2000 presidential race when Al Gore ran against pretty much nobody and lost. Let us not let the Middletown Township auditor primary race end up being decided by the Supreme Court. America, nor Middletown Township cannot bear another unnecessary war.And, while my race is obviously the most watched in Middletown Township, I also ask you to consider the other decisions you will be making today and ask you to make the right one.
Those right votes would be Lisa Reiser, Melissa Kitzmiller, Bill Spitz for School Board; Tom Kearns for Tax Collector, Gary Gilman for Bucks County Court of Common Pleas and Julie Sauerbry-Smith and Chuck Thompson for Supervisor and Pat Fattore for Constable.
But no matter who you vote for today, remember, the fate of the world and every child’s future is in your hands.
Vote Steve Young for Auditor.
