It’s Dill Spears, Brent N Liberty, and Anna Hartvigson!
We’re joined by our favorite guest, Chairman of the Erie County Democratic Party, Jim Wertz!
Immediately, he clears up a non-issue, as Dr. Tyler Titus is, in fact, a doctor, regardless of what local Republican trolls might tell you.
He has an important message as well: If you’re a “Democrat” who supports Republican Candidates because you drink with them, go ahead and change your party affiliation. We’re looking at you, Rita Bishop.
Jim brings us up to date on what’s going on with other local 2021 “off-year” elections, including how to deal with Democratic Primary candidates that might not carry traditional party values.
Why don’t Republicans want to come on our show?
The Atacolypse Food Truck Beer Segment: Idiotville’s #1 fan, Donnie, dropped off an offering “Mystic Mama” from Jackie O’s, a west-coast IPA brimming with hops and coming in at a hefty 7% abv and 80 IBUs. Listen to the show to find out what we gave it. We also have a great talk about a fast-food chain from West Virginia, Tudor’s, that specializes in biscuits and gravy, and we muse on how we could make something like that work in our region!
After the break: Jim addresses how he balances academia and politics, how the consolodiation of several state schools is affecting Edinboro, and what possible effect this could have on our new Community College. How does Jim think each County Executive Candidate would handle the situation? (Hint: one of them would have a plan, the other, well, probably not.)
Is Brian Shank qualified to be sheriff? We’ll spare you the suspense. No, no he’s not. Listen in to find out how UN-qualified he is.
