Just a quick note about our local incumbent in the Gettysburg area. Steve Maitland is making the claim that he saved taxpayers $300,000 by not taking the available perks in the State House of Representatives. Is this a justification for stealing the “unvouchered expense” from the repealed Midnight Pay Raise of last July? How do we know Maitland did not take those perks? All we have is his say-so. What we also have is his record.
- No major legislation.
- Voted YES for the Pay Raise.
- Kept the money taken unconstitutionally by way of the contrived “unvouchered expense”.
- Refuses to pay back that money that has been repealed!
- Failed to achieve a solution to the casino problem.
He will garner some votes from the No Casino Crowd who figure that his failed efforts put them in his debt. That is not really appropriate. What has he ‘accomplished' for the No Casino effort? Nada. Zip. Nothing. You owe him no loyalty.
There really is no reason to vote for Maitland. There are, as you see, several reasons to not vote for him. Obviously, he is incapable of legislating anything that would ban the casino from Adams County.
Republicans, you owe it to yourselves to write in Patrick Naugle as your choice for Representative in the 91st District. Let’s give someone else a chance to be a decent, law-abiding State Representative for a change. Maitland had 14 years and failed. Why would you send a thief back to the scene of the crime with instructions to help himself. That’s about what you would be doing by re-electing Maitland.
Two of the other candidates, Republican Moul and Democrat Henry, are backing the casino, having bought into the lies put out by LeVan, and the Ernicos.
This surmounts partisanship. You have been abandoned by your state government, and you have been abandoned by the parties that put that government in place. Do you really want business as usual?
Time for change? You bet! Deny Maitland a seat in the House. It is yours, not his.
We urge you to read the previous post which contains the GettysBLOGPrimary 2006 Voter’s Guide. And we urge you not to vote for Maitland, Henry, or Moul.
But if you take no other advice, get out and vote tomorrow! Make sure you go, and take someone else to vote.
Vote NO to Maitland!
