Talk About Benefits---Former PA Rep. Gets New Job--Raise

Dan Surra Has a New Job

Former state representative Dan Surra didn't go very long without a job.

Governor Ed Rendell has made an exception to the hiring freeze he imposed to create a new job for Surra , who started work Monday as a senior adviser for the "Pennsylvania Wilds."

Surra will be paid $95,000 a year — a bump up from the approximately $89,000 Surra would have made had he won a 10th term in the House and kept his leadership position.

Rendell's press secretary says the new position is a wise investment, and Surra's primary responsibility will be to balance the region's tourism with the surging interest in drilling for natural gas.

Too bad such positions weren't posted for people to formally apply and the governor had to hire the MOST QUALIFIED candidate instead of his buddies...

SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING COMMISSIONER MORLEY DOES. TOO BAD THE PEOPLE ALREADY WORKING THEIR HINDQUARTERS OFF CAN'T GET PAID WHAT THEY ARE WORTH. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME

This is the change you all voted for! The only way to create jobs is to make jobs up. This is the Obama way, spend money to create jobs. We are going to spend are way out of debt. 3,999,999 jobs to go.
Let the record show, I DID NOT VOTE FOR EITHER ONE OF THEM, Obama or Rendell!!

Jim,

I finally found out what Surra's new job entails. The $95k must because he had to put his body on the line.
