WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Three weeks and counting until the Nov. 7 election, Franklin County Democrats were sounding ebullient Wednesday night about their chances of unseating Republican incumbents.
Andrew Alosi, the nominee for the 89th District seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, told the approximately 50 people at the party's fall dinner at the Waynesboro Elks Lodge that many voters have learned to pronounce his name as he campaigned door-to-door.
"I'm going to teach Rob Kauffman to sing 'Alosi' whenever he's singing the blues on election night," the candidate said, referring to the GOP incumbent. "It's time for a change in Harrisburg."
Alosi echoed a theme that worked well against several incumbent state legislators in the May primary - cutting perks.
"I've made a commitment not to accept any perks," Alosi said of the vehicle, gas and mileage expenses allowed legislators. The candidate said he has also not accepted any contributions from "special interest groups."
