Candidate Needed

Today's P-G carries a story about how Allegheny County Chief Executive Dan Onorato has no known challengers as the gears begin to turn for the 2007 election cycle.

This is disappointing -- for our democracy to be healthy, we need strong candidates in competitive races in which the issues of the day are debated. With the Penguins management visiting Kansas City and the Port Authority facing the biggest service cuts in its history, there certainly are issues that need to be debated.
