To the Residents of Cumberland Township

We are not ones to say "We told you so!", but, well, we did.

And now you know just how arrogant the Cumberland Clowns are, and even more, how unafraid they are of you voters and tax payers.

You will now experience a 250% increase in your township taxes.

That is your Christmas gift from the overblown, self-important, greed-oriented, arrogant clowns you call Supervisors.

We suggested to you that they could save money by going from 5 supervisors to 3, and eliminating the Township Manager's position. But even more, that would enable the Township to meet its obligations to its constituents without the expensive expansion program on which they have embarked. Indeed, you are seeing first-hand the cost of the million-dollar revolving line of credit they arranged with Adams County National Bank to pay for the expansion.

We told you they wanted to create a developer friendly environment in their new digs, which will allow them to sit in self-aggrandizement in their new Taj Mahal Cumberland Township Municipal Complex, which will match the Taj Mahal High School your School Board built.

We asked you to show up at the Supervisors meetings. Some did, and they were vocal and expressed themselves about the planned water park, but no one opened their mouths about the expansion plan, because no one showed up to protest the expansion plan.

What they've already done has affected Willoughby Run, partially blocking its flow.

Now they have placed their hands in your pockets to satisfy their greed and arrogance. They will sit as potentates upon their gilded thrones, and you will do without to pay for it all.

We've asked repeatedly where is the Environmental Impact study for their expansion plan, and also for the water park? Apparently there is no requirement for Environmental Impact Studies for the township, or at least they are arrogant enough to feel they do not need one. And if they don't, then neither does Cali Entertainment that wants to build the water park.

This one is on you, dear residents of Cumberland Township. You have a huge problem on your hands, and have allowed it to grow far beyond something simple to fix.

We told you so.
