Uncle Irvin: Cowboy Coldiron must go!

A guy who proudly brings a permitted six-shooter in a visible holster to a public Board of Supervisors meeting which he chairs has got to be unhinged, as well as inhabit another planet.
So it is with supervisors chair John Coldiron in East Nottingham Township, which Uncle Irvin has called the most poorly governed in southern Chester County. Don't get me wrong, Coldiron has plenty of other incompetent supervisors with him. But for the time being, East Nottingham residents have the golden opportunity to send Mr. Coldiron back to the target range.
Coldiron is on the ballot as a Republican seeking re-election at the May 20 primary election. The problem is that three other Republicans, including incumbent supervisor Gene Turns (who has passed away) are on the ballot. Joseph Herlihy is on the ballot, along with Coldiron, and a bright light named Shelley McLeod of the prominent McLeod family.
Shelley McLeod will indeed be a breath of fresh air and has the courage to help remove Coldiron from being the chairman, even if he survives the election. This is a watershed election for East Nottingham citizens to begin to put the township back together.
