Labor council makes primary endorsements

The Blair-Bedford Labor Council recently conducted a candidates night, where candidates were invited for Blair County commissioner, coroner, Altoona mayor and city council, Logan Township supervisor and Altoona Area and Hollidaysburg Area school boards.

Candidates were asked to submit a letter of consideration for endorsement or attend in person.

We chose to support the following:

Commissioner — Bruce Erb, Ted Beam, Bruce Kelley and Laura Burke.

Altoona mayor — Mark Geis.

Logan Township supervisor — Joe Metzgar.

Altoona Area School Board — Frank Meloy, Dutch Brennan, William Ceglar, Josh Turiano and Mike Baker.

Hollidaysburg Area School Board — Tim Surkovich, Brandon Burns, Tom McCaffery, Lonna Zook Frye and Doug Stevens.

Coroner — Patty Ross.

The event was well attended and representatives from all factions of labor were present to vote on these good candidates.

We urge everyone to get out and vote in the May 21 primary.
