People Above Politics

Litz brings Local Government, Small Business, and Conservation Experience to the Table.

   Jo Ellen is a 5-term Lebanon County Commissioner who is the Boots on the Ground for local government implementing programs to Protect Children, Serve Families, Secure Justice, Manage Emergencies, and Safeguard Elections.  In short, Commissioner Litz Safeguards the Public Trust.

Whether it was the 2004 Campbelltown Tornado, Tropical Storm Lee in 2011, or the 30" 2016 Snowstorm Jonas, I've been here for you.

Litz was elected by her peers from across the state of Pennsylvania to serve as the 2012 president and 2013 chairman of the Board for the statewide commissioner's association. 

Litz is about starting a conversation from public structures like roads and bridges, water and sewer, schools, and energy.  A sound infrastructure is the basis of a sound economy.  Litz believes we need these Economy Boosting Jobs to put money into the pockets of people so that they can buy homes, cars, and goods.  Litz supports a transportation plan to make our roads and bridges safe.  In this way, we will create good paying jobs, get people to these jobs, our goods to market, and children to schools. 

Jo Ellen served as the chair of the MPO (2012-15)--Metropolitan Planning Organization for Lebanon County--where she helps to prioritize local road and bridge projects with PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration. 

Keep Litz doing the People's Business.

Lebanon Daily News Holiday Cookie Contest

Low-fat Michigan Rocks

bullet

1 ¼ cup white sugar

bullet

¼ cup brown sugar

bullet

1 (24 ounce) jar of chunky Mott's applesauce

bullet

4 eggs

bullet

1-teaspoon baking soda in two tablespoons of hot water-mixed

bullet

1-teaspoon vanilla

bullet

1 dash of salt

bullet

3 cups flour

bullet

1 pound chopped dates

bullet

1 ½ cup chopped walnuts

bullet

Pam cooking spray

  1. In a large bowl, by hand combine sugar, applesauce, eggs, baking soda, vanilla, and salt.  Slowly blend in three cups flour.
  2. By hand, fold in the walnuts and dates
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   Spray cookie sheets with Pam cooking spray.  Drop tablespoons of dough onto sheets.  Bake for about 10 minutes or until light brown.  For a moist chewy cookie, do not over bake.
  4. Cool.  Store in an airtight container.
  5. Makes four dozen large cookies.
bulletBecause they are very moist, the cookies are different from traditional cookies.  When they start to bake, they look like they are melting.  When the center turns from shiny to dull, and the edges turn light brown, the cookies are done.
bulletFor my cookies, I use Mott's chunky applesauce.  Water content of applesauce may vary from one manufacturer to another.
bulletI always use traditional cookie sheets, not "air-bake" sheets that bake slower.
