Commissioners Dan Camp (left) and Tony Amadio / official campaign photos

The Beaver-Lawrence Central Labor Council (BLCLC) has endorsed candidates for this year’s county elections, including a nod to one Republican.

The union’s legislative committee conducted candidate interviews of those seeking endorsement, with its membership body voting on March 18.

The union voted to endorse Democrat Tony Amadio and Republican Dan Camp for commissioner.

Although Amadio’s Democratic running mate Dennis Nichols also pushed hard for the union’s endorsement, he was ultimately left out in the cold. Republican commissioner candidate Jack Manning had also worked to gain the union’s approval, but similarly failed to earn the confidence of the union’s membership.

Incumbents David Rossi (Democrat – Controller), David Lozier (Republican – District Attorney), David Gabauer (Republican – Coroner) and Tony Guy (Republican – Sheriff), were not endorsed but did not actively seek the union’s backing.

Not too surprising. The Democrats have been controlled by organized crime/unions since the 1940’s.

Dan Camp IS a Democrat.

Camp doesn’t know what the hell he is. Like Sleeper he is a chameleon. Blank canvas so you can portray them either way you want. An endorsement from organized labor is like a kiss on the cheek from the mob. They’ll own your ass from then on out. What dinosaurs and political hacks are heading up this so called council? That’s why I scrutinize each candidates record and form my own opinion. if you are so damn lazy and stupid that you need to be told who to vote for just stay home. YOU ARE the people that got us in this fiscal mess in the first place. Your motto should be tattooed on your foreheads. “I’m for Friends and Family Inc and f-ck the taxpayers’.”

Why not his name ends in the right vowels? Plus name confusion can’t hurt either.
