Is Gerwig Resigning in Upper Mount Bethel?
When i heard the rumor yesterday, i gave him a call and told him I heard that he submitted his resignation to Supervisors following their Monday night meeting. Apparently, it was right after they unanimously voted to make Mr. Hankey the official mascot in Upper Mount Bethel.
I tracked Gerwig down on the phone.
"Howdy Ho, Mr. Gerwig!"
- "Who the Hell is this?"
"This is Bernie O'Hare, the Christmas poo. Actually I'm a blogger."
- "What the Hell is a blogger?"
"I write stories, kinda' like a reporter. ... Except everything I write is bullshit and I do no research."
- "Did Angle put you up to this?"
"Heavens, no. I hate the guy. He wants to spread shit everywhere. Anyway, I'm tracking down a rumor that you'e resigning and gave Supervisors your letter of resignation on Monday night. True?
- "Not exactly. I don't speak to the press. Good night!"
Women hang up on me all the time, but this is a first from an old fart. He probably sensed I was about to hit on him. But he called me a member of the press. That hurt.
I'm a bottom-feeding blogger, damn it!
Gerwig is calling it quits, but the rumor is "not exactly" correct.
Gotta' love the complete lack of transparency, though. How do these guys get elected? Oh yeah, we just elected a Northampton County Executive who acts the same way.
So who will take over? Well, Ron Angle is wearing his Commodore outfit again. I thought that meant Brown was appointing him Sheriff, but I think he'd prefer Supervisor so he can make Upper Mount Bethel a shit friendly place to live.
