IF the position has been vacant for 4 years and the education system has been moving along, why fill it now? Just eliminate it and remove the money from the budget. The State is already in enough debt, it just does not make "cents" to me.....Please help me understand.

What are the specific duties of this position? Is this lobbyist expected to bring in $ for our educational system? If this role is not expected to 'find' outside monies well above and beyond the cost of her salary (and held to those numbers) then the position should be eliminated....let me guess, another one of the governor's cronies???

I cant stand it when you refer to him as "fast Eddie". Just sounds odd.

"fast Eddie"...He has earned this nick-name all on his own.

He can not be trusted, he is in the back pockets of the big unions of PA, he appoints friends to high paying jobs...believe you me he is "Fast and Easy Eddie"!
