Ledebur said “I am honored to run for David’s seat and look forward to the fall campaign. I have a lot to offer the Upper Merion Area School District and as I have talked with voters, they are encouraged by my campaign and are eager to help out.”
Upper Merion Area Democratic Committee chairman Tom Kohler added, “To lose a board member with such a background as David’s is tough, but to have the opportunity to replace him on the ballot with someone equally as qualified is exciting. It goes to the depth of quality individuals the Democratic Party has in this community and we are thrilled that Gary is willing to serve. Across our entire ticket, both locally and county wide, we have the most qualified ticket in every race. We pride ourselves on the high level of candidates we elect to our local and county government.”
