Flanked by yours truly and Campaign Manager Tom Baker are Theresa Maust and her mom, Lisa Maust. Lisa is one of our best organizers in Independence Township. Teresa, a member of the Avella High School Class of 2006, is now beginning her undergraduate studies at Thiel College.
Back row, from left to right, are recent Washington & Jefferson College graduate Stuart Keckler; Ernie McCullough of South Franklin Township; my sister, Amanda Snatchko; yours truly; and Assistant Campaign Manager Andy Walz. In front are Bob Melnyk (a one-time Burgettstown resident) and Amanda's friend, Joe. On Tuesday afternoon, in addition to their help at the fair, Amanda and Joe joined us for a few hours of door-to-door outreach. Next week, Amanda begins her senior year at my alma mater, New York University, where she is studying special education/elementary education.

On Friday afternoon, I joined Montgomery County Commissioner Jim Matthews while he greeted fairgoers. Jim is running for Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor. (Viewers of the Pennsylvania Cable Network may have seen some coverage of Jim's visit that aired on Monday.)
In this photo, I am filling out the voter registration form for Fair Queen Megan Weinstock of South Franklin Township. At left if Fair Princess Catherine Clemons, also of South Franklin.
