Andy Roman Helped Bring "Systemic Reform" to Lehigh County

Instead of running for a third term as a Lehigh County Commissioner, Andy Roman instead opposed popular Sheriff Ron Rossi and ran into a brick wall. Roman will now rejoin the vox populi, where he has always excelled as an orator.

I've disagreed with Andy more than I've agreed. We've butted heads here and on at least one other blog. But I like that about him. He is open, accountable and always willing to listen.

In his 8 years as a Lehigh County Commissioner, Andy Roman claims he helped bring "systemic reform" to County government. In his final address, he was happy with these accomplishments: (1) consolidation of four row offices under a Clerk of Judicial Records; (2) privatizing the Nature Preserve into what is now known as the Lehigh Valley Zoological Society; (3) a major courthouse expansion that "saved us a considerable amount of money;" (4) Coca Cola Park; and (5) luring Olympus into the area.

Dave Jones, pictured with Roman above, joke about stealing Andy's plaque. They are political opposites, but are still good friends.

ANDY HAD NO OTHER CHOICE than to RUN for SHERIFF OR ANY OTHER OFFICE OTHER THAN a 3rd Term for Lehigh County Commissioner. ANDY was TOLD POINT BLANK by GOP PUPPET MASTER Wayne Woodman that HE WOULD NOT be SUPPORTED OR ENDORSED for a 3rd Term as a Lehigh County Commissioner DUE TO THE FACT that the GOP PUPPET MASTER Wayne HAD HIS OWN SLATE of the GANG OF 4 WHICH INCLUDED HIS WIFE and 3 OTHER STOOGES to RUN for Commissioner and that ANDY and DEAN BROWNING WOULD HAVE NO SUPPORT OR ENDORSEMENT !!!!!!!!!
IN FACT Wayne the GOP PUPPET MASTER WENT AS FAR AS ONLY SUPPORTING THE 3 STOOGES of OTT, WIFE LISA, and VIC MAZZ for Commissioner and LEFT the 4th GOP CANIDATE BRAD OSBORNE OUT IN THE COLD AND WOULD NOT SUPPORT HIM FOR ELECTION. THANK GOD Brad Osborne MADE IT ON HIS OWN and is THE ONLY ONE QUALIFIED to be Commissioner and HAS A BRAIN IN HIS HEAD !!!! ... STAY TUNED TO SEE HOW Wayne the GOP PUPPET MASTER TELLS and CONTROLS the 3 STOOGES ON WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO VOTE !!!!!

Why do say things you know nothing about? Are you a fool or do you just like to make things up?
