|O'Donnell, Borso and Phillips|
Phillips and O'Donnell can both argue that they'd never get a fair shake here because I've been critical of their candidacies. But this was their chance to prove me wrong. I gave each of the six candidates who answered a fair shake, and refused to allow any commentary at all with their answers. So the Borso, O'Donnell, Phillips refusal to answer is an insult, not to me, but to you.
In Borso's case, she broke her promise to me, given several times.
At Monday night's debate, she spent most of the night looking down at her talking points instead of stating what she honestly feels. When asked to provide three examples of ways in which she'd economize on a County level, one of her answers was more PLAs.
"What's a PLA?" asked a student.
"Project Labor Agreement," she answered.
PLAs are a way to inject unions into construction projects. The advantage is that they ensure good wages for the workers on site. In most instances, they serve the public interest for that reason alone. But the knock on them is that they are costly.
Whether PLAs are good or bad is an argument I can save for another day. But they certainly are no way to economize costs.
Borso's answer was complete nonsense.
