Blandine Mballa-Fonkeu is giving her candidacy for supervisor in Forks Township another shot.
After losing in the May primary, Mballa-Fonkeu is running in the November election for the seat vacated by Supervisor David Billings.
Here is a statement from her:
"A lot has happened in Forks township since my lost in the primary race in May 2013. Former supervisor David Billings has vacated his elected office in July 2013 with two and half years remaining on his six year term. Forks township board of supervisors has appointed Ed Moore to fill the vacant seat for this year remaining six months term, therefore leaving open for election in November the remainder of the term from January 2014 through December 2015. I have approached and expressed my interest to the Northampton County Democratic Committee as per stipulations and rules in such case. With their endorsement and all the paperwork turned in at the county election office, I, Blandine Mballa-Fonkeu am officially on the Democratic Ballot this November. Truly, it is a welcome opportunity for me to expand my primary campaign efforts to reach out to more and more Forks residents.
I am a grassroots community organizer, neighborhood team leader, mother, concerned citizen, resident seeking the office of Forks Township Supervisor to encourage open government, transparency and fiscal responsibility. I am committed to representing all of Forks residents, across party lines, social status, and economic class."Visit her campaign website at www.VoteForBlandine.com and Facebook page at www.facebook.com/VoteforBlandine
