Current Montgomery County Commissioner Joe Gale (R) and his brother and former campaign manager, Sean Gale (R), have announced that they have formed a ticket to run for Montgomery County’s Board of Commissioners. The brothers are graduates of Plymouth Whitemarsh High School and live in Plymouth Meeting.
The current Board of Commissioners is comprised of Val Arkoosh (D), Ken Lawrence (D) and Gale. All three seats are up for election in 2019. Lawrence was appointed to the position in January of 2017 when Josh Shapiro resigned after being elected Pennsylvania’s Attorney General.
Joe Gale, who was not the pick of the Montgomery County Republican Committee leadership in 2015, could face opposition from within his own party. We have not yet heard of any other candidates planning to run on the Republican side.
We have also not heard whether Arkoosh and Lawrence intend to run in 2019.

More to come.
