Erb, Carper, Ickes deserve support
On Nov. 5, voters will elect important leadership for municipal government.
At the county level, Bruce Erb draws on a successful career in banking and finance to aid his decision making.
Blair County faces many challenges as they wrestle with a list of needs that will surely outweigh the ability of taxpayers to foot the bill.
Erb will be able to prioritize and make sure that every tax dollar spent will be necessary. He will represent the taxpayers well and exercise prudent judgment.
The city of Altoona is fortunate to have two great candidates for city council.
Joe Carper and Jesse Ickes will bring new insight and vitality to city government. Carper’s background in government and Ickes’ knowledge of pensions, finance and health care will be great additions to city council.
Their skill sets will be an invaluable asset to city government and help shape a strong future.
