Is Scott Parsons a Secret Angle Supporter?
At last week's Debate at the Slate pitting Scott Parsons against the Northampton County Bulldog, Parsons gave voters every reason to choose Ron Angle on Election Day. In Parson's own words, Angle has both the experience and the time, while Parsons does not. In Parson's own words, Angle has held the line on taxes, while Wind Gap Borough - where he serves as Council President - has seen eight straight years of tax hikes. In his own words, those increases are necessary because "you gotta' give people money." Finally, Parsons has no experience, but has "a lot of people who have helped me." Those people are public sector unions looking to get some "bang" for their buck.
These are just some of the video highlights.
"To run this government, to do the job, there's no question he [Angle] has the experience. There's no doubt about the experience ... .
"What he's done - no taxes - I wish in the Borough of Wind Gap. We raised taxes every year for eight years.
"The man spends a lot of time. I'll give him that credit. He can spend a lot more time than I'm gonna' have ... .
"I might not have the experience. I have a lot of people who have helped me and are backing me to do this ...
"I cannot explain the budget in Northampton County. I'm not up on that right now ... .
"You gotta' give people money. You gotta' give people services for what they want. You want bang for your buck ... .
"PAC money from unions is one $1,000 check from a PAC, and there were two - one $500 check and two $250 checks. So there's $2,000 that came from PAC money."
