Potter County Commissioner Susan Kefover Attends Conference At White House

Potter County Commissioner Susan Sullivan-Kefover



I just returned from Washington from an Intergovernmental Affairs Conference for Keystone Commissioners. 

Pennsylvania was the first state to be invited to this outreach to local government officials. 

No partisan games were at play. It was productive, informative, and helpful as we were given intergovernmental representative contacts to work with within every major department of the federal government. 

For six hours we heard and talked with government officials about grassroots issues. It was encouraging for all of us. We were invited to engage at a level I have not seen before in all my years of service.

Bump into any Russians in the hallways?

Anything like this would never have happened under the last POTUS.

All well and good but what about the business of our own county?

What this really is, is one of the early steps in the Trump campaign's strategy to hold onto certain swing states that put him in office when he runs for a second term. Trump handed the head job of the department to Anthony Scaramucci, super-wealthy head of SkyBridge Capital, who had been a loud Trump supporter and campaign donor. Scaramucci told the Los Angeles Times his main mission heading this department is "really trying to get the President’s message out, to help the President, American businesses and the international business community.” There are all kinds of messages that the White House is open for business and open for the business of re-electing the President. Scaramucci, who runs this department, didn't make any bones about it.

I would prefer to run into most any Russian rather than Pelosi, Schumer, Sanders or Warren.

8:26 why not move to Russia? They're not our ally, and you're not a patriot if hanging with Russians is something you think is ok. Get real.

Thanks to 7:02. I voted for Trump let me make that clear. But when I first read about this inviting county commissioners there I sensed there was a political reason behind it. The "whooppee I'm going to the White House" response was what they were banking on.

Anthony Scaramucci is a political hack who sold out to the Chinese not too long ago and is worth hundreds of millions of dollars. It's a joke to think this insider's insider and his cronies are sincerely interested in "grassroots issues." This is just another part of a calculated advancement of economic interests under the disguise of improving government. Makes me want to gag!

I guess most people that pay taxes in Potter County would say this is a good use of taxpayer money?

8:56......I don't believe I said anything about Russia being an ally. You are quick to judge someone as unpatriotic by simply stating they would rather hang with a Russian than most Democrats. If your argument is that you have to hate Russians to be a patriot, why has there not been an issue with Pelosi, Schumer or a great deal of other Democratic whack jobs that have all enjoyed "business" meetings with Russian politicians? Maybe you need to get real.

2:56 you're saying you'd prefer to hang with a Ruskie rather than 50% of the population of you're native country. That's says something. Taken in the context of this post, you're not a patriot. I'm not quick to judge, and I don't know any Russians, but they by 90% consider OUR country an adversary and act accordingly.

So move there, join the 90%, swill some vodka, and fly the Hammer and Sickle. We won't miss you.
