I'm a member of ACDC and where I think the process works is when the candidates come out and speak to the local committees, it helps people get to know the candidates better, particularly for offices where candidates don't get much publication, particularly judges. I think the entire street fair is pretty annoying, however, since I prefer to just get in and get out without wading through a sea of staffers and volunteers. If candidates themselves want to have a handshake line and speak with committee members on their way to the ballot box, that's fine, but I could do without the circus atmosphere.
I'm not the biggest Chelsa Wagner supporter, but she should be lauded for this policy. Here's hoping it catches on throughout Allegheny County and the rest of the region.
Having lived in Japan for three years while in the Air Force, I can say that the ramen bar is one of the things I miss most. Large bowl of ramen and a side of rice for 5 bucks. How do you beat that? Looking forward to trying this!
