Ott will have left Lehigh County without fulfilling any of the promises he made when he first ran for Commissioner. He promised to roll back the 16% tax hike he so bitterly opposed. That has not happened. He promised to reduce actual spending, but it's gone up under budgets that he helped fashion.
Ott never has been able to stay in any one place for very long. Even in Lehigh County, he's lived at at least three different homes during his short stay here. So it's no surprise to see him go.
But as he leaves, he heaps a mountain of praise on Lisa Scheller, tought by many to be the next GOP Executive candidate in Lehigh County.
"During my time on the Board, perhaps my greatest honor was nominating Lisa Scheller as chair. She’s a leader who understands organizational structure, budgets, labor negotiations and how to craft sound policy.”Ott forgets to mention that it is Scheller's dough that funded his runs for office.
I think tofay is Tom Muller's birthday.
