Do media consultants get paid $84,000 a year to say, No Comment? That certainly appears to be the case here in the People's Republic of Northampton County. Let me fill you in.
Yesterday, I told you that three legal experts have concluded that Executive John Brown's no-bid consultant contracts are illegal. The Express Times.adds that County Council members Ken Kraft and Lamont McClure share that view as well.
In his account, Tom Shortell reports, "Neither Brown nor Kim Plyler, Brown's media contact with Sahl Communications, immediately returned requests for comment."
So are we now getting "No Comment" in stereo?
Not really. Plyler, a military veteran by the way, tells me she was never contacted, so there must be a mix-up somewhere. According to Plyler, "John Brown is reviewing the information with the county solicitor and will be releasing a statement as soon as he is done with the review."
