Las Vegas Blog Bets NorCo Will Stay Away This Year

New to Las Vegas is having some fun with NorCo Controller Steve Barron's recommendation that County Council impose tighter controls on outside travel after his discovery that Human Resources Director Amy Trapp sent staffers last year on trips to New Orleans and Vegas. "I guess when you live in hardscrabble northeastern Pennsylvania–especially the area around Easton–any trip to Las Vegas by government workers on the public dime can look suspect," writes blogger William Barrett. "I’m nominating Trapp for my new list, It Didn’t Stay Here. The list–a play on that great Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority marketing slogan, “What Happens Here, Stays Here“–consists of folks having problems somewhere else for things that happened in Vegas."

Noting that there's an election in November, Barrett is betting there will be no trip to Vegas this year.

You really don't think any of this will have any impact on the election this November, do you? This is nothing.

Yeah, I'm sure the public won't be bothered a bit by trips to New Orleans and Las Vegas, or $800 popcorn machines. They won't mind at all that Amy Trapp is charging taxpayers for lunches for her staff at the courthouse or that she has created a slush fund of gift cards that she hands out unevenly and with no accountability. No problem at all!

Bethlehem Twp administrators spend more on their staff lunches than NORCO does, why is that?

P-card says it all...

Bernie, this sucks but people don't seem to care. What do you think of the primary lection results? Apparently the republicans voted the most for the same people who enable Brown. How about the Dem's, what did they do?

Sorry, since Ron Angle fell off thee earth in the primary, Bernie is not into the election results.

Totally agree, non issue and no one cares. How many more times are we going to hear about a training conference in Las Vegas and a Pop corn machine? Time to move on to your next made up scandal.

If she keeps terminating hard working dedicated employees she should have plenty of money for lunches and trips to Las Vegas
