Manville council candidates debate trust, politics down to the wire

 

MANVILLE — Candidates for Manville Borough Council are fighting about trust and politics right down to the wire, according to a report in the Manville News.

Incumbent Democrat Ed Komoroski and incumbent Republican Steve Szabo are seeking re-election while challengers Harry Bugal Jr., Democrat, and Dayna Camacho, Republican, are up for the two three-year terms, the report said.

Borough Republicans questioned a real estate business solicitation by Komoroski made to Manville residents in flood-prone neighborhoods, asking them to consider using his company should they decide to accept buyout offers on their homes, the report said.

Democrats argued with Szabo’s acceptance of cash in lieu of health benefits after 15 years as a crossing guard and eight on borough council, after the borough agreed to give health benefits to part-time employees, the report said.

Polls are open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
