— Cambria commissioner betrayed residents

Who Douglas Lengenfelder voted for in this past election was a personal matter, but as a Cambria County commissioner, he betrayed the citizens of the county, including those in Johnstown, by publicly endorsing for Congress Keith Rothfus instead of Mark Critz, a resident of Johnstown and Cambria County, whom Lengenfelder is supposed to be representing.

Lengenfelder is a traitor to the citizens of Cambria County and should resign his position immediately.

In Critz, we’ve had a congressman who has worked hard for the county in which he lives. He would never have betrayed his constituents like Lengenfelder has done.

When Lengenfelder was elected, I was glad to see a fellow veteran get into office. I have changed my mind.

One thing local residents can count on is that Rothfus will not again set foot in Cambria County until the next election.

To betray the citizens of Cambria County is despicable.

I will do my best the next election to try and convince everyone I can to throw Lengenfelder out of office.
