"Full Time" Controller Sneaks Out of Budget Hearing
Budget hearing are where all the dollars and cents questions are asked and answered. It's the kind of meeting that the County's financial watchdog should attend. But Barron was there to pander to the union. After briefly stating he needs more money for his department, Barron went on to say that he has been "railroaded" by the Obamacare changes, adding that the "County withheld this important information."
Then, at 5:28 pm, he quietly left the meeting room, and could be seen in the hallway, gladhanding with County workers. The budget hearing was still going stong at 7 pm, when I left for Lehigh County.
