PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Allegheny County District 1 Councilman Matt Drozd announced that he is switching his party affiliation from Republican to Independent. On Tuesday, Drozd lost the nomination as the Republican nominee to school board member, Tom Baker. He’s now asking the Allegheny County Republican Party to resign his chair.
“I didn’t lose in the election, the election was taken by five gentlemen that misled the voters,” said Drozd. “I’d rather lose with my honor and dignity in place then win the way they did.”
He describes his campaign as positive and honest, the opposite of his competitor. Baker sent out two flyers in the mail that claimed Drozd had voted yes to support Obamacare, he never did that.
