Listen To This Article:

The nominating petition for county controller candidate Candice McMunn is being challenged by a group of Democrats who are seeking to keep her off of the ballot.

McMunn filed a petition containing 270 signatures nominating her to appear on the Democratic primary ballot. Candidates need 250 valid signatures to qualify.

The lawsuit is alleging 31 of those signatures are either duplicates, from individuals not registered to vote, or from people who do not live in Beaver County.

Those challenging McMunn’s petition are Democrats Jacqueline Rose Marchionda and Thomas Suica of Monaca Borough, Diana Parsons of Brighton Township, Josh Vanyo of New Brighton Borough, and Josh Hall of Pulaski Township.

If the challenge to her nominating petitions is unsuccessful, McMunn would face incumbent Controller David Rossi in the Democratic primary.

A hearing in the case has been set for March 27 before Common Pleas Judge Dale Fouse.

Well, see, now that makes me want to vote for her instead of Rossi if she makes it on the ballot. It’s Rossi, right? Not Ross.

She should put more effort into cleaning up her house and yard its deplorable. And when entering either mackall or crandon it’s the first house you see. Great for property value. But they don’t car there not homeowner taxpayers. The township should get on them about it and broken down vehicles in the yard.

How she going to know one thing about that job.

Perhaps she is running because the current controller doesn’t put in enough effort actually DOING the job. It’s appalling how few audits he actually completes. He’s never audited the treasurer’s office and its been many years since he’s completed many of the other row offices. The hotel tax audits have become a joke. Dave Rossi simply occupies space in that office. After his recent request to remove his first deputy from the time reporting system, I would vote for a fourth grader with a good attitude before I would vote to reelect this assclown.

Based on the people coming out against her…She gets my vote!

What disqualified her? The qualifications for the job section? You read the backgrounds of many of the candidates in this election, including incumbents, and just a few have any relatable experience or education that would qualify them to do the job they are running for.

But, fortunately (for them), this is Beaver County where we vote based on name recognition, hometown, or the time honored “__________ is an asshole and I’m voting for whomever runs against them!”

HAHAHAHA
