Crowded Agenda For Meeting With Rep. Causer

Potter County Today

State Representative Martin Causer spent most of Thursday morning discussing a wide variety of timely issues with the Potter County Board of Commissioners. He pledged his support for continuation of the shale gas drilling “impact fee,” which has provided townships, boroughs and the county government with significant revenue that would otherwise have to be generated by the real estate tax. Rep. Causer also said he is eager to be involved in any efforts being pursued locally to prevent two major mergers in the telecommunications industry from causing job losses at two Coudersport employers. Additionally, he reiterated his support for the Rural Regional College of Northern Pennsylvania.

Much of the discussion focused on Governor Tom Wolf’s 2017-18 fiscal year budget proposal and the significant issues lawmakers will have to address to achieve upwards of $3 billion in spending cuts or revenue generation the governor has called for to balance the $32.3 billion plan. The commissioners urged Rep. Causer to push for adequate state funding for the myriad of human services that county governments are mandated to provide. An indiscriminate 10-percent cut in state funds several years ago has continued to burden county taxpayers and all signs point to an increasing demand for services in the coming years.

Its about time the news about Time Warner and Level 3 gets out. Both of these places could be in trouble because of mergers and lets face it Coudersport is not even a blip on the radar of the big giants who have eaten up the two companies. Lets see how long it takes for the Housing Redevelopment Authority to pounce on another big property and get it off the tax rolls. Somebody needs to reel them in. Take a look around at all of the real estate they have snatched up. Ask Tom Majot or the Bruzzis or Bill Rink or Bud Lefever or the bank inn Chicago that owned the Taj Majal and the list is a lot longer than that.

We still believe in the trickle down theory from the Reagan years.Everyone keeps believing the fairy tale that if we keep cutting taxes for the rich and powerful we will be OK GOOD LUCK WITH THAT THEORY.They rob your pensions and 401K with their insider trading and we look the other way Who do you think profits from all the military spending not your troops
