Well as it would seem, if you run for county council, lose, then get yourself on the ethics board with one name, and have perhaps tarnished said name, upon resigning from said ethics board, you could always use your pen-name if you plan to seek another office.
It’s likely the public wouldn't even notice, the chances of that of course increase if you’re in Luzerne County, and if you’re in Wilkes Barre, well then you’re golden.
According to a recent post that appeared on the personal Facebook pages of several of Wake Up Wilkes Barre’s Facebook friend’s, Mr. John Simpson will be announcing shortly in the press, that he is a candidate for Mayor of Wilkes Barre, City.
John Simpson, A.K.A. Bruce Simpson seems to be off to a great start. As it appears he is either using a pen-name or alias. Now this could just be a Facebook pen-name for business reasons, but using one name for voter registration, and another name when publicly soliciting campaign assistance seems a bit unethical, but then again we've had 10 years of no ethics in the mayor’s office, so why start now?
