Why doesn't the Planning Commission look for any new people?

Bad enough Andy lied about his salary, now he's gonna make sure he nickel and dimes us with requests for "meals, mileage, lodging ($210.00) and registration fee ($125.00) expenses."

Go Andy!

So Mr Jones I knew that you wouldn't have guts enough to publish my comment about Andy Watson's health insurance. And that is one of the reasons that you have very little credibility in this community and why I, along with hundreds of others, would never send you money to "subscribe" to your blog. Why would we want to finance your own little "dictatorship"? You are a JOKE.

Solomon's words for the wise said...

While your comment about Mr. Watson's family insurance needs may possibly be accurate, it is extremely crass and demeaning. Mr. Watson was elected to the job by the voters of Potter County, and is entitled to the benefits that come with the job. I won't publish your comment, but I'll pass it along to Andy along with your computer address.

That is fine by me Mr.Jones. I have known Andy Watson his whole life-in fact I used to change his diapers-and would say the same thing to his face that I said to you. So feel free to pass along to him whatever you like.

Then why waste the time posting an anonymous comment 10:58 when it appears that you would gladly say it to his face. Problem is that makes you a liar. Maybe working on your integrity rather than throwing around words like "dictatorship" would suite you a little better right now.

Required training for Mr. Predmore? I doubt that. He is a volunteer so why are the taxpayers paying for his training and how can it be required?

I'm positive Dawn Fink got her expenses paid for trainings and seminars as well....and that is different how? Oh right, because YOU don't like Andy Watson. If she was so much better, why was the margin of votes so wide????

Please also note "PASC Conference, March 4-5, 2010, State College, Pa. Request for meals, mileage, lodging ($249.56) and registration fee ($150.00) expenses (Barb Klein). $375.00 each for PEMA training for John Hetrick, Glenn Dunn and Dean Predmore. Request for lodging ($126.98) and registration fee ($110.00) expenses for training for Deb Persall of Probation.....and the list goes on...

So what's your point? I'll tell you--sour grapes, pure and simple. The County routinely pays for trainings to enable officials you elected or who work for the county to do their jobs. Post when you have something relevant to whine about.

Oh good grief! name me one county elected official who hasnt been reimberced mileage and registration fee's or whatever.
I think Mr Watson should be given some credit..because he's sure got the people paying attention to the local government as they should have all along.
