Cusick Lays Out Agenda in Second Year as Norco Council Prez
Until that happened, Peg Ferraro briefly took over the reins of County Council as Acting President. After all, she had just been unanimously elected VP. Ironically, after a straight party vote, Ferraro told Council that they should forget about the Rs and Ds behind their names, and focus instead on good government.
Ferraro also claimed the new Council, which consists of newcomers Ken Kraft, Scott Parson and Bob Werner, will bring a "new era of civility and respect for the taxpayers who honored us with their vote." That's a not-so-subtle slam at former Council member Ron Angle, who was defeated at the polls in November on that very issue.
Angle was at home, feeding his cows, when Ferraro unleashed her verbal volley. His only concern was, "Are the Ten Commandments still hanging on the wall?"
Speaking of the Ten Commandments, County Council apparently has a new Chaplain. Michael Dowd, a real minister, was also swept out of office last November. Too lazy to call area clergy members to lead Council in prayer before meetings, Cusick always relied on Dowd.
With Dowd gone, Cusick called on none other than the Fake Rev to seek Divine Guidance. Yep, Cusick has ushered in a new era of civility by calling a phony who has claimed Jesus told him through a TV set that he sent tornadoes to kill innocent children in Alabama because of President Obama's Israeli policy.
Oh yeah, Angle is Satan, too.
I refused to participate in a phony prayer by a false prophet who must have alienated every Jew in the room with his numerous references to the "glorious name" of Jesus.
Once elected Council Prez, Cusick announced his agenda, something that apparently slipped his mind in his first year as President. First, he wants to deal with the swaption and a possible bond refinance. Second, he wants a lease for the treatment center in West Easton, that can be voted up or down. Third, he wants an advisory board for Gracedale, and claims he's been contacted by several people about it already. Fourth, he wants an archives building, claiming it is an "absurdity" to spend money to lease space. Finally, he wants to consolidate human services.
