Ron Angle's Summer Uniform

Last Friday, when Northampton County Bulldog Ron Angle appeared in Court sporting a stained T-shirt and baggy pants, Morning Call reporter and fashion consultant Riley Yates decided to make a big deal out of it, in an article entitled "Dressed for Success." Angle had been cutting hay when summoned to Court with only thirty minutes to get there. The judge understood, but Yates just had to get in a little dig. After all, Angle is from the disenfranchised Slate Belt.

Yesterday, Angle had a two-hour long meeting with County Exec John Stoffa, Court Administrator Jim Onembo and President Judge Kim McFadden. They are attempting to find common ground in the neverending quest to reduce the size of County government everywhere, even in the Courts. Tipstaffs might have been mentioned once or twice. I can recall no occasion when the PJ and Court Administrator sat down for that long with the Exec and Council Prez. It's safe to say Angle has the Court's attention, and that's a positive sign.

I know this because there are no secrets in Northampton County. Morning Call reporter Riley Yates found out, too, and called Angle for comment.

"I'm not going to speak to you until you learn to dress better," is how the Bulldog tells me he replied to Yates before hanging up.

Above, you can see Angle in his new County Council summer uniform. Notice the nice dress shirt, along with wading boots for all the bullshit so common in government.

Always the self promoter. Hey Angle which prison will you go to when the "will" fraud is finished.

Can't believe Yates has the nerve to call Angle!

Good for Angle for including the Courts as areas where cuts can be made, instead of always hitting Social Services.

This picture is in poor taste. Of course it is not Angle. In any case, it is more information than I want to know.

This is an actual photo pf Angle when he and Bernie got together. I agree, it is very difficult to look at but that is the life they choose.

Yates was right. Angle is a crooked dirtbag.

Hum! and this is the county who are always reinforcing a dress code in their human service worker who are in field most of the time. Specially CYF workers who most of the time work with chidren, visit filthy homes, and sometimes has to run for safety. As everything in the county double standards!

The DHS Director is a Community Development guy who knows nothing of County Human Services. It was a campaign payoff to Stoffa's major Republican contributor in his 05 race. It was wired in.
