Frantz, Donaher Treated Kindly By Personnel Committee
Brown proposes to start Frantz at $95,921 per year. She speaks a strange language, and may have set a world record on using the word "intersection" about a gazillion times. She also used strange phrases like "maximizing the continuum", "decision trees" and "funding thread." But her lexicon also includes a phrase that must be music to a Republican's ear - "fiscal accountability." She insisted she would bring this and that is why she chose to work for John Brown instead of applying to be Director of Human Services in Lehigh County. "The fiscal component will be an equal partner with the program component," she told Council.
I guess they don't care about fiscal accountability in Lehigh County. She certainly doesn't, or she never would have mismanaged the HAO program.
The maximum number of employees she has ever supervised is eight. There are currently four people under her.
She has no experience in veterans affairs, none with nursing homes, and has only dealt with unions on a "low level."
Donaher, who will start at $83,718 per year, basically puffed herself. She's someone who "knows the players," including Alan Jennings, as though the two people from her office who are on his board do not. She mischaracterized the current office as one that goes nowhere. "What they need is some one to lead and get out there in the community," she stated, completely ignoring all the outside work done by that office right now.
She described working on the BethWorks project and then Ken Kraft told her he worked there, too, and never saw her.
She also claims to have worked on a KOZ in Bethlehem. That's interesting, because Bethlehem has never had a KOZ or a KOEZ.
Maybe she worked on one in the vineyards of Bucks County.
She then tried to take credit for BassPro's recent interest in Bethlehem, noting she had taken the company on a tour about 11 years ago.
I'm sure that cinched it.
Based on Frantz' record in Lehigh County and lack of qualifications, I would vote against her. And after hearing Donaher falsely claim to have worked on a KOZ in Bethlehem, I'd pass on her, too.
But they will both likely be confirmed.
And may God have mercy on our souls.
