Dunkelberger wants to fix Prothonotary issues
SUNBURY — Northumberland County Prothonotary candidate Justin Dunkelberger believes he can make the necessary difference. Dunkelberger says the office has some issues, but he, as an outside party, sees the problems and can fix them.
“I’m going to get in here, get in the mix and change the dialogue. If I’m successful, I’m going to go in and I’m going to fix these issues,” he said. “I’m not in this for a career. I’m not going to be 20 years down the road saying I’m running for reelection. That’s not who I am. That’s not what I’m going to do. I’m here to fix this problem and do it the best I can and leave it in great shape for the person to come after me.”
Dunkelberger is running against a woman who has many years of experience in the prothonotary’s office, but he says that does not mean she is a better fit. “All I want to do is come in and give a different level of experience,” he said. “Right now there is probably over 50 years of experience in that office, between the deputies and staff. So, coming in as a manager, as the prothonotary, I don’t think is that hard of a step. Most of the daily functions are carried out by the deputies and staff. I’ve run businesses from different continents. This is something that I think I can pick up rather quickly.”
Dunkelberger said if he is elected he would keep his opponent, Jamie Saleski, on as an employee in the office. He said a new manager should always keep good, hard-working, experienced employees on the job.
