State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf of Willow Grove, a Republican representing the 12th District in Montgomery County, is running for a third term without opposition in the Nov. 4 election. No Democrat filed to run in the May primary - tacit acknowledgment that he has served well. The district embraces numerous suburban communities in eastern portions of Montgomery County and borders on both Philadelphia and Bucks County. During eight years in the Senate, preceded by two years in the House, Sen. Greenleaf, 46, has acquired a well-earned reputation for doing his homework and delving into complicated issues.

State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf, a leading critic of the state Liquor Control Board, blasted the agency last week for using a "sales gimmick to curry public favor prior to sunset action this fall. " In a statement released Wednesday by his office, Greenleaf, a Montgomery County Republican, criticized the LCB's Aug. 30 liquor sale, in which the price of all bottles was reduced by 20 percent, as "a hypocritical ploy" designed to drum up public support before the state Senate's vote on whether to keep the LCB in operation.

State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf said yesterday that he would not join the fray in the 13th Congressional District, choosing to make peace with the Montgomery County GOP rather than risk "another local civil war" by seeking the nomination. In a county still recovering from a year of Republican infighting, Greenleaf said he would not enter the race to replace U.S. Rep. Lawrence Coughlin because of his "desire not to cause further fracture in the Republican Party.' "In another time I believe the party might have benefited from a spirited primary contest," said Greenleaf, 52, who in the state Senate represents the 12th District, covering northeastern Montgomery County.

If a politician stays in office long enough, he may have time to undo some of the collateral damage caused by the laws he made when he was young. State Sen.

Republican State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf announced Monday that he would join the ranks of Romney, Perry, Cain and Santorum on New Hampshire's presidential primary ballot. But make no mistake, he said, he is not running for president. Instead, the Montgomery County legislator hopes to use the national spotlight to stimulate debate on "skyrocketing debt," "reckless spending," and his plan to return the nation "to the path of prosperity and progress. " "My family . . . we have a wonderful life and quiet, cheery home," he said.

The chairman of the Abington-Rockledge Democratic Committee has asked the Pennsylvania Department of State to investigate the campaign committee of State Sen. Stewart Greenleaf (R., Montgomery-Bucks) for alleged violations of state campaign law. Al Molitor accuses Greenleaf's committee of spending more than $10,000 in campaign funds in 1996 for a trip to North Korea and other purposes unrelated to a campaign. Molitor also says those expenditures were not properly reported. Under the law, according to a Department of State spokesman, funds raised for an electoral campaign must be used to influence the outcome of an election.

The last contested primary races for state Senate seats in the four suburban counties became uncontested yesterday. A Commonwealth Court judge in Harrisburg removed maverick Republicans Tom Lingenfelter and Daniel Snyder from the ballot, according to a local GOP official. That leaves freshman Sen. Joe Conti of the 10th District, veteran Sen. Stewart Greenleaf of the 12th, and every other suburban Senate candidate unopposed in the May 19 primary. Bucks County Republican Party Chairman Harry Fawkes said the two were removed because they did not collect the required 500 signatures from members of their party.

Pennsylvania had the most Lyme disease cases in the nation in 2009, 2011, and 2012, yet no state-run surveillance program for ticks exists. A bill Gov. Corbett signed into law Thursday seeks to remedy that. The Lyme and Related Tick-Borne Disease Surveillance, Education, Prevention, and Treatment Act will establish a 20-member task force to develop educational and surveillance programs to be run by the Department of Health and other agencies. "This is an underdiagnosed and undertreated disease," said Sen. Stewart Greenleaf (R., Montgomery)

Read between the dance lines Last weekend's performance of Chinese classical works by the Shen Yun Performing Arts group included magnificent choreography, costumes, and music. However, unbeknownst to many ticket buyers - unless they thought to research it, which I did not - the Merriam Theater appearance also had a political/religious agenda that I found to be disconcerting. Shen Yun is part of the international Falun Gong movement, a religious practice that has borne the brunt of brutal persecution by the Chinese government.

JUST BECAUSE star guard Maurice "Doo-Wop" Watson is a senior and already committed to Boston University, don't think college scouts have scratched Boys' Latin Charter off their gotta-see list. Watson's backcourt partner is a 5-7, 160-pound junior named Yahmir Greenlee, and since he boasts skill and terrific academics (3.9 GPA), schools such as Saint Joseph's, Drexel, Penn, Quinnipiac "and Division IIs by the dozens" are already sniffing. Yesterday, Greenlee totaled 21 points, five rebounds, two assists and three steals as the visiting Warriors topped Engineering and Science, 62-59, in what eventually became a pulsating Public League round-of-16 playoff; it was also a Class AAA semifinal.

Decrying the unfairness of stringent timetables that prevent convicted defendants from presenting new evidence of their innocence, the chairman of the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee has introduced legislation to allow appeals at any time in cases where credible evidence has been discovered. State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf, a Montgomery County Republican whose party dominates both houses of the legislature, said his bill would also extend from 60 days to one year the deadline for a defendant to file an appeal after unearthing new evidence of innocence.

The chairman of the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee plans to propose legislation that would permit defendants to file post-conviction appeals at any time based on significant new evidence of their innocence, regardless of when that evidence was unearthed. The current state law, one of the nation's most stringent, requires such evidence - unless based on DNA - to be presented to the court within 60 days of discovery. Eliminating the 60-day rule is "the only fair thing to do," said State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf.

Saying the Philadelphia criminal justice system is "in disarray," State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf and eight fellow senators on Wednesday proposed to create a Senate advisory panel to investigate the city courts and recommend reforms in laws and court rules. Greenleaf said he was acting in response to an Inquirer series on the city courts that he said "raised serious concerns. " As the newspaper reported in a series of articles in December, the Philadelphia courts are plagued by low conviction rates, rampant witness intimidation, a massive fugitive problem, and the dismissal of thousands of cases each year without a ruling on the merits.
