Uncle Irvin: Dinniman, Rzucidlo worthy of votes

Throughout southern Chester County, Uncle Irvin finds only two local candidates worthy of election to the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
Despite incumbent State Sen. Andy Dinniman's penchant for accumulating the most public pension money (as a professor at West Chester University, Chester County Commissioner and State Senator, which I estimate between $100,000 and $150,000 per year, or around $500,000 in a lump sum), Dinniman really works at his job diligently and delivers superb constituent service. While I do not always agree with his positions on issues, Dinniman deserves re-election in what may be his swan song election.
In the 158th State House District, I support Susan Rzucidlo. Susan is caring, compassionate and conscientious, and will vote for what's best for her constituents, not what's best for lobbyists.
I cannot recommend anyone for the 13th Legislative District. Nancy Dean is running against incumbent John Lawrence. I know nothing about Nancy Dean. In fact, I had to research to see if Rep. Lawrence had an opponent.
Incumbent John Lawrence is running for his fourth term in what looks like his intention to make politics his lifelong career, like his predecessor, Art Hershey. Rep. Lawrence is invisible and does not deserve re-election.
