To the editor: I am Penelope J. Murphy, local business woman in Northumberland County for more than 50 years, and former Republican state representative candidate for the 107th Legislative District. I believe we need a truthful, hardworking, businesswoman to honestly and fairly represent all of us. I wanted to be that person but did not receive sufficient signatures to have my name placed on the ballot to compete for this honor. I give my sincere thanks to all of you who distributed or signed my petition to be a candidate to represent you.

On a slightly different topic, I urge you to telephone your county voter registration office (Northumberland County, 570-988-4209, and Schuylkill County, 570-628-1467 or 1471) to confirm the party for which you are registered to ensure that you are signing the correct petitions in the future.
