On the Republican side, Carl P. Stevenson is taking on John Zgura.
Stevenson, 60, president of WK3C Wireless, said township residents are unhappy with zoning restrictions and getting "hassled" by the township. For example, he said, he owns more than 12 acres and only is allowed to have 25 chickens on it. "I could have 250 chickens up here and it wouldn't bother anyone," he said. "How do you feed your family? That's a chicken every two weeks," Stevenson said of the 25-chicken limit.

ACLU Appeals to PA Supreme Court On Behalf of Candidate Stricken From Ballot :: American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania

ALLENTOWN, PA - The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania has appealed to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court a Commonwealth Court decision removing from the ballot Carl Stevenson, an independent candidate running for a state House seat in the 134th district (parts of Berks and Lehigh counties).
Earlier this month a Commonwealth Court judge disqualified 97 of his petition signatures because they were obtained by someone who did not reside in the district. The statute requiring petition circulators to reside in the electoral district was declared unconstitutional by a federal court in 2002. "Requiring petition circulators to be residents of the election district is a serious burden on independent and minor party candidates' ability to gather the signatures necessary to get on the ballot, and there is no good reason for the requirement," said Witold "Vic" Walczak, legal director for the ACLU of Pennsylvania, who is representing Stevenson. In fact, Department of State personnel advised Stevenson that the district-residency requirement had been declared unconstitutional. Alburtis Mayor Robert Mader and Michael Gibson of the Emmaus Republican Committee challenged Stevenson's nominating petitions on behalf of the Republican candidate and incumbent in the race, Doug Reichley. Without the 97 signatures gathered by the individual from outside his district, Stevenson would not have enough signatures to appear on the ballot. In its ruling against Stevenson, the Commonwealth Court refused to respect the federal court's injunction in Morrill v. Weaver, writing that "decisions of the federal district courts and courts of appeal ... are not binding on Pennsylvania courts, even when a federal question is involved." "It's disturbing that the major parties will spend so much money, time, and effort in their efforts to maintain a stranglehold on our political system," said Stevenson, who is also the president of WK3C Wireless, a consulting firm. In addition to Walczak, Stevenson is represented by ACLU-PA staff attorney Mary Catherine Roper.

A judge ruled that signatures on Carl Stevenson's nominating petition were invalid.
Judge James R. Kelley ruled that a number of signatures on Carl Stevenson's nominating petition were invalid because they were obtained by someone who doesn't live in the 134th District. Stevenson said he needed 577 signatures and collected 702. Stevenson, 59, of Upper Milford Township, is considering an appeal, saying that a federal court case supports his claim that a nominating petition circulator doesn't need to live within the district. > DON'T BE THE LAST TO KNOW.

Reichley said the judge considered that federal case during a hearing Wednesday and ruled the case was not applicable to Stevenson's. "I hope Mr. Reichley joins me in asking Mr. Stevenson to continue on with his campaign..." Slattery said in a statement issued through his campaign. Reichley, who lives in Alburtis, acknowledged a challenge to Stevenson's nominating petition was filed on his behalf by Alburtis Mayor Robert Mader and Michael Gibson of the Emmaus Republican Committee. Stevenson, the president of WK3C Wireless, a consulting firm, has said he was drawn into the race because he's "fed up with the way things are going with government." A Commonwealth Court decision striking Carl Stevenson's name from the race for the 134th District state House seat means the campaign is back to a two-man race. The candidates:
