Tricia Mezzacappa, Republican candidate for one of four West Easton Council seats available, has withdrawn from the General election to be held in November. Her withdrawal paperwork was filed last week.
Mezzacappa was the lone Republican candidate that appeared on the Primary ballot on May 16th.
Currently, two Republicans are serving on West Easton Council. Mr. Robert Lewis, who changed parties following his election in November of 2015 and Mr. Peter Mammana, who was appointed by Democrats on Council (DePaul, Dees, H. Nodoline) to fill the seat vacated by Mr. Ron Nixon. Nixon resigned this past March, due to needs of a family matter.
Republicans will still be offered two candidates on the November ballot. Democrats Jeff Beidinger, Jr. and myself won spots with Republican write-in votes in the Primary.
