Stoffa Vetoes McClure Madness

Northampton County Exec John Stoffa has vetoed a Lamont McClure-inspired law that would have prevented County workers from serving on public service boards like CACLV. It would have prevented Sheriff Randy Miller and Emergency Management Director Bob Mateff from participating in regional efforts to enhance our security and readiness for natural disasters. 

I will have more later.

Sad that Stoffa has no respect for the law!

It is sad that Maclure has no vision!

And this isn't law yet. Thus the veto.

Override. Lamont's an ass but was and is right on this one.

If McClueless would have done any type of legal research, whatsoever, he would have found out that State law (which by the way, trumps County law) has promulgated and requires some county employees to serve on certain boards, commissions, task forces, etc...

He had no choice as Jennings and Marcus flaunted county law. They are responsible for the lawlessness. Mr. McClure is merely trying to make all play by he same rules, no favorites.

Are we a county of laws or of Alan Jennings' hissy fits.

"He had no choice..."

Your argument makes no sense. Ross Marcus was wrong. However, two wrongs do not make it right again. McClueless should know (he is a lawyer, right?) that his proposed ordinance cannot stand muster to State law. You cannot correct a situation by another illegal ordinance. It's insane! I feel as if I'm watching the federal shutdown all over again, except in a Northampton County microcosm.

Over at the Save Gracedale club, Ron Shegda is definitely proving why we are so, so lucky that he was NEVER elected to any position. His logic makes no sense and no cents. Thanks be to God that he was never elected!!!

The law is the law! We live in a society of laws, you can't pick and choose which ones to obey.

"McClure countered that Stoffa could also appoint the district attorney, controller or any county council member to attend authority or board meetings since elected officials are not considered employees. When asked if he would be willing to attend CACLV meetings, McClure said he would if his schedule allowed it."

4:09, did you wear your seat belt today while you obeyed every single law in the motor vehicle code?

There's room at Graterford for non compliance

Lamont McClure, quoted off Lehigh Valley Live

He doesn't attend any council committee meetings, but he'll do this?

Yep, sure.

Anon 409pm, before I comment I'm curious, are you a liberal or conservative?

Yes

Does it really matter? The laws were written for everyone to abide by.

Clinton oxturd will cut and paste the law for you

Marcus was hired by one of his largest vendors to a job that was created for him. You don't find that mildly disconcerting???
