Inside The Attempt To End Jack Manning’s Candidacy For County Commissioner

County Republican Committee Chairman Jim Christiana asked county commissioner candidate Jack Manning to drop out of the race last Thursday so a replacement could be appointed to appear on the general election ballot. Manning refused. He told BeaverCountian.com he believes Christiana, who also works as a paid political advisor for Republican Commissioner Dan Camp’s reelection…

We need to get all of Christiana’s boys out of office- Lozier (who tried to hire Christiana’s mom in the DA’s office), Camp, and Guy; plus, anyone Christiana runs to replace Vogel. He and his cronies are the Beaver County SWAMP.

Drain the swamp

Christiana and Guy are part of the Beaver County swamp that needs drained. They both believe they are mafia and we need to kiss the ring!! It’s all dirty politics and this is another prime example. They don’t care who they have to run over to remain in power. Get out to vote and vote anyone associated with them 2 out of office!!

Questionable accounting. Maybe he should run for county Auditor. LOL

Jack should have resigned or at least taken a full leave of absence from his work at the Chamber when he announced that he was campaigning for Commissioner. Chamber work is glad handing and public appearances and it’s easy to see how some would feel that there is a conflict, especially with him posting these events on his Facebook page. THAT would have avoided any such thoughts. It’s a shame that yet another Beaver County election blows right pas any meaningful debate of issues and goes right to the bullshit that we just drown in, in this county.

But the important thing here is that JP gets his little shots in at the Times. No playing favorites on The Beaver Countian!

I may well vote for Jack Manning as this is hardly the only “issue” that I’m going to base a vote on, and the incumbent candidates are hardly impressive. But, that doesn’t take away from the fact that he should have taken time off from the Chamber work, if he’s running for public office. He separates himself from that group and a lot of the public speculation about the Chamber operations become a Chamber story and not a Jack Manning at the Chamber story.

“If there was a systematic pattern of an agenda then I would speak up. Being in politics for 15 years now, I don’t think there is much benefit in whining about those isolated articles.”

There’s a pattern of an agenda alright, but it’s coming straight from the party chair to line the coffers of his consulting firm and go against any candidates who dare to raise their funds without him.

The hell of it is that all the old people who read the Times (and who vote) have already absorbed the negative press about Manning. Only a printed retraction could register with BCT readers, and that isn’t going to happen. (Side-note: Keep your eyes open for some full page paid advertising by the Beaver County Republican party as the payoff for being complicit in all of this). This is politics 101; scream unsubstantiated accusations at the top of your lungs and whisper as you walk it back. They’re counting on people only remembering the screams.

Camp finished fifth out of five candidates in the primary. That’s how little respect he’s earned. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I wish we could say this is a new low in Beaver county politics, but unfortunately this doesn’t even make the top 10.

Didn’t Manning finish first? I do agree with Wah Wah that it would be nice to hear where candidates stand on issues, but the dirty politics seem to overwhelm meaningful conversation around here.
