Former U.S. Reps. Peter H. Kostmayer and James C. Greenwood, who squared off in 1992, will share a stage to relive that divisive campaign and air their thoughts on the culture of today’s political world. The event is scheduled for 6:30 to 7:45 p.m., Wednesday, May 18, at the Free Library of Northampton Township, 25 Upper Holland Road, Richboro.
Kostmayer, a liberal Democrat, and Greenwood, a moderate Republican, will be interviewed by Andy Warren and Hal Marcovitz, authors of the book Notes on Bucks County: Reflections on Politics in Pennsylvania’s Most Curious and Captivating Collar County. The book provides a history and analysis of the often-chaotic world of Bucks County politics over the last 75 years. A chapter, titled the “Kostmayer-Greenwood War,” is featured in the book. You can learn more about the book and the upcoming Kostmayer-Greenwood forum at notesonbuckscounty.com.
Notes on Bucks County is available through Amazon.com as well as Bucks County bookstores. Following the event, Warren and Marcovitz will be available to sign books outside the library.
There is no charge for admission to the event and no pre-registration is required.
The Kostmayer-Greenwood forum is the first of two planned events to help mark the publication of Notes on Bucks County. In June, Marcovitz and Warren are planning a similar event featuring leaders from both sides in the debate over the Point Pleasant water project — an issue that dominated the county in the 1980s that featured political upheaval, public protests and mass arrests.
