LV Health Comm'rs to Meet Tonight

The combined legislatures of Lehigh and Northampton County will meet tonight, 6:00 p.m., at the Lehigh County Government Center, 17 S. 7th Street, Allentown, PA, Room # 123. I have no idea whether Northampton County's Council will continue to remain opposed.

There's got to be something we don't know about to explain why this group continues to push forward, even when so many are opposed.

What. No comment on last night's Lesley and Ed Show?

Please will someone put this thing out of its misery and vote NO on tonite!

Even if Gracedale sells, whatever profits are made need to go to paying off bills, put back discontinued services, give laid off workers their jobs back, give people tax breaks and put money back into the rainy day fund.

For those in Lehigh county who are facing a 16% increase in taxes and cuts in services, this is an insult to them creating a new, unnecessary level of government that already exist by the cities and state.

Hopefully those in the councils will get some common sense and dollar sense and stop this thing.

Everybody gets worked up about that, but I love it. I also like the wussie remark.

Politicians aren't supposed to talk that way. Why not? It's honest. I like it. It's like the rest of us. I've has enough with the careful remarks.

Don't forget. I like Angle.

Politicians whose DOTs have left hundreds of motorists stranded on snow closed highways and who get limo service to their heated luxury boxes shouldn't deign to lecture on public safety issues related to weather. What an asshole.

I agree completely. But I think Rendell is at his best when he ignores his handlers and says what he thinks. I wish he did it more often.

How many citizens usually show up to these sorts of meetings?

So ... Rendell is at his best when off script, being an asshole.

Don't know about being at his best, but that's when he most interesting - like a bus crash.

It's usually just special interests.

We couldn't make this stuff up.

"The Prince George's County Council is spending $10,000 to $15,000 for a two-night retreat on the Eastern Shore this week.

Ingrid Turner, chairwoman of the County Council, said she chose to spend more money on this year's retreat, even as the county faces a $77 million shortfall next fiscal year, to help council members avoid distractions."

I hear they have still allowed this monster to survive. John Stoffa who is selling off Northampton County seniors actually applauded the effort of a new multi-million dollar non-mandated bureaucracy dedicated to employing hundreds of new public tit suckers.

It would be amazing if it wasn't classic Stoffa who was doing this. When will this boondoggle die. If public health is important the private sector will and can do it better. Nough said!!
