The 2018 election is over, finally.
First, thanks to 177th District State Representative Republican John Taylor who is retiring after a long distinguished career. Taylor managed to avoid partisanship as he represented his district which includes Northwood and Democratic Philadelphia in the Republican-dominated legislature. He served both Philadelphia and Northwood well. His constituent service has been unparalleled and his successor has some big shoes to fill.
Democratic candidate Joe Hohenstein won Taylor’s seat over his opponent, Republican Patty Kozlowski.
Both State Representative Jason Dawkins from the 179th District and State Senator Tina Tartaglione from the 2nd District ran unopposed. I am not sure why some other party does not think those seats worth going after. Every election benefits from a debate and you can’t have that with just one candidate.
Now let’s look forward to the holidays.
