Crowd energized at School Board Slate cocktail party

   The crowd at Charlie Sciandra’s and Rich Gorzkowski’s school board ticket (Rosanne Ricotta, Art Bobbouine and Bobby Breymeier) was elbow to elbow and energized at their cocktail party held this past Friday at the Gramercy.
   In fact, it was reminiscent of the energy when Mike Lombardo first ran for Pittston City Mayor nearly two decades ago. Part of that energy came from the Pittston City Councilman Danny Argo and company who serenaded the crowd.

What Is the real reason Dupont spent $290k to buy K-Ceneter
Wanna buy a bridge?
   Or should I ask, wanna buy an old school?

Rostock kicks off campaign in WB

Rostock kicks off campaign in WB
   You can take the boy out of Pittston but you cannot take Pittston outta the boy.
   This past week, political stalwart and county council candidate, Tony Rostock held his kick off rally in downtown Wilkes Barre at Stir.  Stir is also co-owned by Rostock’s nephew Nick Chimento.
   Rostock packed the room where I would estimate at least half were from Greater Pittsto.  He actually introduced five other candidates -John Peckarovski - Larsville, John Gadomski Wyoming, Tim McGinley – Kingston, Robert Schnee – Sugar Loaf, and Jane Waitkus – Dorrance.  He said they were on his ticket but    I’m not exactly sure if they’re forming a “ticket.”  We do know the folks he introduced are the Luzerne County “endorsed” candidates.
   I’m giving the over under on Rostock grabbing one of the six open seats at 75%.  Please keep in mind there are six opening and nine are running.  And, knowing how no one is a better mover and shaker than Rostock in the field, his chances are good.
