Stoffa asked Executive John Brown "to continue to support the retirees. They are a great group of people."
Brown has demonstrated that support by failing to appoint a successor for two months.
As a result, retirees are receiving no updates, which leads to embarrassing situations when a deceased employee's family is notified of an upcoming meeting.
Since his election as Executive, Brown has also failed to attend a single retiree luncheon, despite receiving invitations.
Now that he is running for state auditor general, he might pop his head in this Fall. If he does, I'd advise against delivering his standard stump speech, bragging about how he straightened out Northampton County.
The retirees know better.
Oh yeah, and with a Tropical Storm headed our way, I thought now might be a good time to point out that Brown has still failed to appoint a county EMS Director to replace Bob Mateff, who has only been gone 15 months.
