After interviewing all four candidates vying to serve out the remainder of County Executive Don Cunningham's term, the intergovernmental and appointments committee (IGAC) decided to not recommend a single name at its Aug. 1 meeting in Allentown.

Instead, a motion was passed by the committee to send all four names to the board of commissioners, to be voted on at its Aug 8. meeting.

Commissioner Vic Mazziotti, who serves on the IGAC, said he was impressed by the interviews of all four candidates and said he did not feel ready to make a decision.
