Brown Skipped NorCo Council For Parade


Northampton County Executive John Brown knew that Nazareth area residents were coming to Northampton County Council on Thursday night. They are concerned about a jail at Gracedale. But when they arrived, Brown was missing.

I have since learned that he skipped Council to bask in the Bangor Halloween parade. You can see the video here

Brown the Clown should be in a circus, not a parade. Was his tax cheat, expense account thief and no-talent administrator driving the car?

I she dressed as Mandrake the Magician? Is that a foreign car he is riding in? Can't make out he model.

Solid decision. The Bangor parade is a blast.

I'm reminded of the movie Groundhog Day listening to the announcers.
"Oh, motorcycles! Vahroom! Vahroom!"

Yeah, why should he respond to Nazareth area voters who told him they would be there? They'll let Brown know what they think at the polls.

He already said it wasn’t being built there but people believe what they read on this trash blog. Too bad we need any jails. If you can’t live in a civilized society and be a contributing member of it you should be put down.

He has said a lot of things. He was refusing to say anything until Nazareth voters pressured him. And he should have been at Council to answer their questions about a law that he managed to get slipped into the Admin Code concerning jails. he knew they were coming, and he thumbed his nose at them.

The new prison at Gracedale is a done deal.....We will all praise John Brown for the wonderful job he and taz cheat do and have done. Its always NIMBY.... however that property was bought to be used not to benefit the town people by it sitting vacant-

And Brown belonged in the Bangor parade seeing the people

A room full of losers or a parade of losers...... Good Choice John!

Oh no! He’s going to lose 50 or so votes in a Nazareth neighborhood he don’t need anyway. Put the jail up and let them move back to New York!

milking a fake story, Bernie is copying MSNBC, repeating a fake story and trying to make it true. Brown has done a good job so all that is left is to try to scare people about an non event.

Bernie, do you get to the point of laughing at these stupid comments, or just shaking your head in incredulous fashion? I do both. I can't wait for the election! Bye bye John!

A story Brown and county council have been researching for over a year is fake?? Well maybe people are as stupid as you believe, and he and his team will prevail.

I remember when he knocked on my door 4 years ago, and wondering why the mayor of Bangor would be door knocking in BT when his town was dealing with flash flooding then. (I hope this doesn't post 2x, as last time I tried from my phone it did).

He should have been at the meeting, but Mr. Brown has made his position quite clear in his mailer:

NO SALE, NO JAIL

Anything else is either #FakeNews or #LamontLies

A Parade! How about Proper Piror Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance! He has made his position clear is and understatement. Next Bernie - JFK assignation. . I can't wait to tell you .

I hope you caught the TV guy called him Joe Brown.

Bernie O'Hare said...

I did. Peter, even if there were no concern about the jail, he belonged at the council meeting.

Where was McClure? did he parade?

Stop whoring yourself for McClure and the half dead zombie who Brown replaced. Please pray people don't read the drivel from a disbarred lawyer in making a decision to move to our valley! You sir are a bottom feeding troll!

John Brown has stated that this is fake news. Do people sill believe it? Mr. Brown said that he is the victim of a political witch hunt. He sent mail and it said he balanced the county budget. Why do people doubt his word?

Anonymous said...

The mail I received he claims Gracedale as "four star"! Really John ?

Anonymous said...

Brown lost Bangor last time..will lose Bangor again. The guy is despised here and for good reason. Cathy Allen took over when he left and took the town further into financial ruin. They are both despised. The effects of the Brown tax roll backs for his own political success destroyed our ability to run the boro with sufficient funds. His legacy lives on in Bangor.

Gracedale is currently at two stars and had slipped as low as one star in June. https://lehighvalleyramblings.blogspot.com/2017/06/gracedale-rating-drops-to-just-one-star.html

"John Brown has stated that this is fake news. Do people sill believe it? Mr. Brown said that he is the victim of a political witch hunt. He sent mail and it said he balanced the county budget. Why do people doubt his word?"

Just as he makes this claim, word leaks that there is a special financing mechanism quietly passed in Harrisburg that only applies to jails in Erie and NC. That gives people pause. Lamont McClure has maintained that Brown had a secret plan to build a jail, and that appears to have been accurate and is substantiated by overwhelming evidence. But Nazareth area residents who became upset over this are not political and are in fact mostly Republican. He refused to answer their questions at first, so it's understandable why people have trouble believing Brown now.

I thought he said there is no jail going at Gracedale?

Anyone who doubts Brown and his council gang want o build a new jail are dreaming. Of course hey want to and Nazareth is sill in the mix.

A disbarred lawyer with severe mental issues. That writes a blog that is the National Enquirer of the Lehigh Valley. But he got an award! Giving this guy an award for journalism is like giving pasano an award for architecture for the leaning tower of Pisa.

This blog and this principle are going to change the dynamics of this county by its leadership . So - lead ,follow or get out of the way ,we say and Bernie has a clear DD-214 and the ONLY people that have a right to that issue are Vets - not guys that sat home play n with them selfs in the mirror At their parents house . Debate me .

So only people who were drafted or joined the military have a right to participate in democratic government? When did this country become a military dictatorship?

Bernie will not allow anyone to debate you. Haven't you noticed?

Actually, I have five journalism awards this year, two in 2016, one in 2015 and one in 2014. One of the awards this year includes a $400 payment. I try very hard to get my facts right and if I make a mistake, like I did on Friday, I admit it. I also take responsibility for what I wrote. But what gives me the most satisfaction is knowing I piss people like you off.

"Bernie will not allow anyone to debate you. Haven't you noticed?"

Correction, I will not allow anonymous cowards like you to "debate" Peter, bu which you mean personal attacks. Identify yourself clearly.

Peter j. Cochran said...

No that's what I said ! If you want to criticize a defrocked attorney and your your not bright enough to be one yourself OR , your a wreck as a human don't judge this man who has this blog! "Bernie will not allow anyone to debate you ." Well that's not true , he does not Evan like me , I,m a miserable son of bitch - retired 3 times and I have nothing to do but screw around with unscrupulous people ! I need a new job ! I'd like to handle problems at our ABE airport . But have no inside deal ,and I've had a secret clearance when I granted like Lee Harvey Oswald but I gararded nuclear bombs and psychological prior but don know I'd testify that I I love everyone today ! What your question implies is if you have not been prior military can one question Bernie ? I say you have no venue if you have not been ,Period !
Additionally Lee Harvey Oswald did not kill John F.Kennedy. Take this to the bank . He was involved but was a poor marksman ,Lee had been in the RS- 71 project he was in the hanger with the plane . He was dishonorably discharged from USMC for self inflicted firearms injury . More to come here as the press will shortly have their bullshit say . Next first on this blog ,
