Alex over at the PAWaterCooler has posted a letter send out by Montgomery County Commissioner Jim Matthews, a Republican, explaining his power sharing agreement with Democrat Joe Hoeffel. One of his points is the loss of the county controller's office, formerly held by Republican Eric Kretschman, who did not run for a second term. The office is now held by Democrat Diane Morgan. Matthews says Kretschman had a "winning profile." Unfortunately, though Mr. Matthews praises Mr. Kretschman he can't spell his name, typing Kretchman instead; the "s" is missing. It is an unusual name and the few times I've used it on the blog I've had to verify it. But if you are singing someone's praises it's nice if you get their name right. It is interesting to note, however, that someone claiming to be Kretschman himself made the same spelling error in a post on a blog in a galaxy far far away. The pseudo-Kretschman claims to support Ron Paul. Probably just a coincidence.
