Looks as if the rats don’t always win. Bruce Peterson claimed victory in the Upper Deerfield primary despite the efforts of Magazzu and cronies to defeat him. The Magazzu-controlled party refused to put his name on the Democratic ballot and even launched a write-in campaign to ensure that Bruce is not on the ballot in November.
Reportedly, Clair Miller ran up quite a phone bill telephoning Upper Deerfield residents and asking them to write in Joe Timberman’s name on the ballot. It was reported Miller’s wife went door-to-door soliciting same. Only it backfired. Upper Deerfield residents who weren’t going to vote in the primary found this solicitation distasteful, and that was enough to get them to the polls to vote for Bruce. WuLi speculated earlier that this failed effort was ” obviously an overt union move into Cumberland County, orchestrated by Nelson Thompson and Magazzu. “
Congratulations, Bruce. The best man won.
