Meanwhile, In Newtown Square
Newtown Square makes what's happening in Springfield's 6th Ward look like a 60's love-in, only without the long hair and the drugs.
My colleague Tim Logue put it better:
NEWTOWN — An election to fill one seat on an all-Republican board may not seem like an earth shaker, but it makes all the difference in Newtown, where the board of supervisors is split like a lunch tab at a cheapskate convention.I'm meeting Gillin soon.
UPDATE: Supervisor and Partridge supporter Joe Catania reports that things are looking "real good" for his guy, even in Houldin's home ward. "We're either even or ahead. We'll see."
