Brown's Transition Lacks Transparency
Because he has failed to be transparent about his transition team, rumors are circulating. Nasty rumors. One is that car dealer Andy Daub is calling the shots. Another is that it's LV Congressman Charlie Dent. Yet another is that the NIZ kid, J.B. Reilly, has started mining Northampton County. Worst of all are stories that the LV Partnership, our very own unelected aristocracy, is making its presences known.
I hope these rumors are untrue.
I see no reason why Daub or Dent would want to get involved in internal County matters. Dent does not live here, and Daub's chief interest has always been pretty much limited to the preservation of the County's history. Neither has seemed to care much about the day-to-day affairs.
The possibility that J.B Reilly is involved worries me. His only interest in government is how much money it can make for him.
Finally, the people did not elect the LV Partnership. They elected Brown.
Like Donchez, Brown needs to be much more open about his transition.
