GettysBLOG: Primary Preferences

This will be short and sweet.

In Straban Township:
Voters MUST reject Jay McDannell, and return him to his day job. McD was one of the prime movers in the Casino operation. Whatever you do, do not vote for McDannell.

We recommend Ron Horton. If it says to vote for two, only vote for one. Ron Horton. Horton apparently does not play with the poowers that be, instead calling them like he sees 'em. He appears to be a straight shooter, and unafraid to stand up to the intimidation tactics employed by those in government office. We take this to mean he's on our side.

We believe that Sharon Hamm is running as well. She did a remarkable job leading the Concerned citizens of Straban Township. We think she has earned a seat on the Board of Supervisors.

In Cumberland Township:
Do not vote for a single incumbent, in particular, do not vote for John Gregor, or George Weikert, David P. Waybright, Carol Merryman, Tom Shealer or Barbara Underwood. These folks exist to make life so easy for the developers even a cave man can do it.

These are the folks who raised your taxes 114% to pay for their facilities expansion plan for the township buildings and have never asked you if they should/may do it. They just arrogantly usurped the taxation process and proceeded with their own grandiose plan [which no one has seen, by the way!]. They must be stopped NOW!

If you do return them to office they will vote to approve the zoning change to allow the water park. This one transcends party lines! That means that you should NOT vote for any of these no matter what party they are running in.

For County Commissioners:
It is simple: Do not vote for Glenn Snyder, George Weikert, or Lucy Lott in the Republican Primary. Lisa Conklin should make an excellent Commissioner.

On the Democratic side, we’d like to endorse Mark Berg, but we’ve yet to see any major project he starts with him still at it at the end. We fear his loss of interest in the job after a while. We like Marty Qually but do not believe he is experienced enough. We really do not have a favorite here, except for Berg, and Clifford. Moreno and Lamb are insiders at the Courthouse, and potentially tainted by the developer’s lobby.

For Gettysburg Area School District School Board, we recommend Buxton, Hoffman, Michael, Symmes [an incumbent], and Biesecker [an incumbent]. There are far too many college profs and employees involved here already. We need to put the school board back into the hands of the parents and regular taxpayers. The five mentioned above will serve that purpose.

The current school board is raising taxes to fund a stadium that is unnecessary and unwise in the current fiscal environment where the state government is playing games with school taxes. Most of these candidates want to spend your money.

Finally we urge everyone to vote NO on Act 1.

Good luck and sweep out the bozos!


We support the Roadmap to Reform!

“Be steadfast in your anger, be sure in your convictions, be moved by the right and certainty that abuse of power must be defeated at every turn; uphold Liberty as the just reward of a watchful people, and let not those who have infringed upon that Liberty steal it away from you. Never loosen your grip on Liberty!" -- GettysBLOG

Act 1 Civera's Last Act

For 27 years, Mario Civera has promised property tax cuts. Check your tax bill and you'll see his complete failure. He stood with the Governor and rattled on how he would get it done. Well the voters said you failed Mario.

“They saw this for what is was: smoke and mirrors and just another way for the legislature to pretend they are doing their jobs.” Sure Mario will get you a handicapped parking spot, but when it comes to saving your home , that spot isin't worth much.

Worse yet The Upper Darby School District has proposed a 4.6 prperty tax hike.

To quote from the Delco Times, “When the next election rolls around, I don’t care if it’s a Democrat or Republican,” she said. “If you recognize their name, don’t vote for them. If they don’t get this issue, get them out of there.”
