NORRISTOWN — The sixth Shapiro-Richards campaign office to open in Montgomery County debuted Thursday afternoon in the Studio Centre on Markley Street with more than 50 enthusiastic volunteers and the task of showcasing the Democratic candidates for Montgomery County Commissioner — State Rep. Josh Shapiro, D-153rd Dist., and Whitemarsh Supervisor Leslie Richards.

The two candidates mingled with the volunteers, talked campaign strategy and explained why they both want to be elected to the three-member Commissioners’ office.

“There are serious challenges that can best be addressed at the county level. Corbett’s state budget cuts, for instance,” Shapiro said. “I want to be in a position where I can have a direct impact on the lives of 800,000 Montgomery County residents.” Read the rest of this entry »

The Democratic candidates for Montgomery County Commissioner, Josh Shapiro and Leslie Richards, stopped by Norristown Saturday to enjoy a backyard barbecue and talk with voters.

The Democratic tandem of Josh Shapiro and Leslie Richards paused from an otherwise busy Saturday to grab a bite to eat at Norristown Councilwoman Mimi DeSouza’s afternoon barbecue.

Prior to arriving at the barbecue, the county commissioner hopefulls spent their morning attending the Ambler Dog Days Parade. Afterward, they stopped in Norristown to grab a bite to eat alongside other prominent Democrats, before leaving to attend a fish fry and a bike night.

Norristown Patch was invited to attend the barbecue, and we grabbed some great pictures of the group chowing down and mixing it up.
