Dauphin County Comm'r Jeff Haste an Eagles Fan

Dauphin County Commissioner Jeffrey T. Haste spoke at Northampton County town halls concerning Gracedale. He came up to explain how privatization worked at a public nursing home in Dauphin County. Patient care actually improved. The number of indigent patients increased. And although some of the union workers walked away, most of them are back, and getting more money (and less benefits) than they did as County workers.

But the one thing that struck me about Haste was the lid. He was wearing a suit, the usual uniform of an elected official. But he also sported an Eagles cap, and told me he supports Philadelphia teams.

And in Steeler Country? Democrat or Republican, he gets my vote.

I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more o those Eagles' caps now that they have become the Giantkillers.

Maybe the cap was part of the act he was putting on for the locals.

By the way, what politcal party is Mr. Haste? Just curious.

I have not checked, but he's probably an R. He had a sense of humor.

Steeler country? Harrisburg is a mix of Steeler, Baltimore, Washington and Philly fans. there is no majority of fan population there.
