The Gerber Saga Unfolds

When Montco's Mike Gerber announced that he was stepping down, he set off a ripple in the state political pool.

After all, he was a rising star in the state's Democratic party, possibly earmarked for a run at the governor's mansion. Resigning suddenly, especially just months before an election - one he was almost certain to win by a large margin - upset the apple cart.

Most signs point to his resignation being nothing more than seeing a great opportunity and taking it. Yet there is still the little matter of who will fill his spot on the ballot come November.

A lot of names were kicked around, but PoliticsPA is reporting that Mary Jo Daley, a member of the Narberth council for some 20 years, has been chosen. There are still some formalities, of course.
