Local Government

Since fall 2003, I’ve written hundreds of articles for the Latrobe Bulletin, a daily newspaper based in Latrobe, PA.  The following are my articles covering local government in Ligonier, PA that have appeared in the paper. Always a work in progress!

*Please note: links to stories between July 10, 2015 and July 12, 2019 are broken as the Latrobe Bulletin website was revamped in July 2019. Please contact me if you’re interested in reading one of these stories.
