There is nothing worse than and EX police officer now wanting to be a PA District Justice. Too much baggage. Their career is dealing with mostly criminal situations that likely involve the issuance of a citation and sending someone to lock up or jail. The Police Officer is trained and experienced in "taking charge" and controlling a situation. Usually to his liking. Look at the Ryan Moats situation in Dallas. Sorry officers, you do a great job on the front lines, but, in the court room, ehh... not sure that is the place for you. The EMT ambulance fellow is a very interesting candidate. Clearly able to handle crisis situations with tact and compassion. Remember, he is not ARRESTING or CHARGING anyone with a crime. Has to think out what is best for the patient and use skills of logic and common sense when choosing and applying treatment.

Anybody but McCartney. A that bird has a pathological problem with telling the truth. I wouldn't let him judge a 1st grade spelling bee. Just not the example that should be put before the community. Heard good things about the other three though.

What does this Vollie know about the law. A police officer lives it. WAKE UP people.
I vote for Rick

Macungie, PA

My vote goes to Knecht,he is an honest down to earth person.Roy on the other hand can't run the jobs he has now and if you want to talk about corruption look no further than Klecknersville ambulance and the fire company.They have a few undesirables who should be investigated on where the money goes.
I vote for Rick

You mean a wannabe police officer like Hawke. He only thinks he knows the law, he wouldn't make a good crossing gaurd. Ed Lewis is a fine example, why a cop should never be made a DJ

Run Truss's name on the public web portal you will see lot's of bad checks that went to arrest warrant etc... He also ran defunct Northeast Ambulance and ran that into the ground. Ask any employee who worked for him.

Don't vote for this guy if you want a person of good character.

I can believe Truss would even consider running with a crimnial back ground but then again he is from Moore and that fire company and ambulance company has had it's share of crooks from the start.Chapman's has asked for an account of what they do with the money they get from them and they refuse to answer,if you look closely you will see someone has some new vehicles and a boat and she knows who she is!

Apparently you're clueless about the fact that the police, particularly in smaller jurisdictions, get dispatched to all ambulance and fire calls. They also generally get there first.
Hence the term "First Responder", which encompasses a part of police training.

I have also heard a lot of bad about him. If the people only knew!! As stated...why would you run for something like this knowing you have a bad background and you know someone could expose it. It's bound to happen it always does.

I think it is sick how in certain spots I saw McCartney signs and now they are gone!! One spot in particular. I can't prove it but I am almost sure of who it is. There are ways to get proof. So before you pull more sign think a lil bit. Make sure it's worth your while!! People already know who they are going to vote for so pulling them signs is pathetic especially if you get caught!!
