Bradford Native, Maryanne Cole Announces Last Minute Write-In Campaign For Democratic Nomination For State Representative In The 67th District

Maryanne Cole
Bradford native Maryanne Cole has announced a last-minute write-in campaign to capture the Democratic nomination for the seat in the 67th district of the state House of Representatives in Tuesday’s primary election.

Cole, who holds a doctorate from Case Western Reserve University, is the daughter of Casey and Anne Cole.

She returned to Bradford in 2005.

Her candidacy, she said, is the result of a desire to see rural Pennsylvania — and her hometown — returned to the “wonderful, thriving place it once was, where people can raise their families in safety and security — and prosper.”

As a write-in for state House, she said she is an advocate not for special interests but for “each and every person in rural Pennsylvania” and supports such policies as “access to quality healthcare locally, and to quality public education, while keeping taxes low but invested in things that will make a real difference in every citizen’s life.”

She would work for job creation and protecting second amendment rights.

Cole, currently employed at Archbishop Walsh Academy in Olean, N.Y., has taught at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford as well as Florida Southwestern State College, Alfred State College, Arizona State College, and Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nev.

She previously owned the Willows Restaurant in Bradford.

“People want change in government and change begins at the local level,” she said.

She is also seeking a seat on the McKean County Democratic Committee as a committeewoman from Foster Township, District 2.

The 67th House seat is current held by Martin Causer who is on the ballot seeking the Republican nomination. The district includes McKean and Cameron Counties and a portion of Potter County.

Congratulations to Chief Mr. and Mrs. Micheal McMonigle who were married today!

Congratulations to Chief Mr. and Mrs. Micheal McMonigle who were married today! The Company wishes the best for your future years together!!

 The National Weather Service in State College PA has issued a

* Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
Northern Elk County in north central Pennsylvania...
Warren County in north central Pennsylvania...
Northern Lycoming County in north central Pennsylvania...
McKean County in north central Pennsylvania...
Potter County in north central Pennsylvania...
Northern Cameron County in north central Pennsylvania...
Sullivan County in north central Pennsylvania...

North central Clinton County in north central Pennsylvania...

* Until 715 PM EDT

* At 207 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated a large area of moderate to
heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms across the northern
mountains of Pennsylvania. The 1 to 2 inches of rain that occurred
since last night, combined with an additional 1 to 1.5 inches of
rain this afternoon and early this evening will cause minor
flooding in poor drainage areas and along some small streams.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to drive across
flooded roads. Find an alternate route.

Flooding is occurring or is imminent. It is important to know where
you are relative to streams, rivers, or creeks which can become
killers in heavy rains. Campers and hikers should avoid wading
through streams or creeks, since just 1 to 2 feet of water could be
moving fast enough to sweep you away.
