Citizens Voice Idiotic Endorsement

For those of you still reading this RAG (The Citizens Voice) I’m hoping you’re not as dumb as they (the editorial board) thinks you are.

In their fast dash to push a Good O’l Boy, (Eddie Day Pashinski) they (The Citizens Voice) stated:

State House in the 121st District

Now in his second term, state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, has grown into the role of a state legislator.

The retired music teacher is plain-spoken, informed and unafraid to point out the inconsistencies in what passes for conventional wisdom in Harrisburg.

In his interview with The Citizens’ Voice Editorial Board, Pashinski bucked political trends by opposing H.B./S.B. 76, which would replace school property taxes with increased income and sales taxes, and offered the most astute analysis as to why the bill would not work and why it will likely fade away once election season is over.

His opponent, Libertarian Betsy Summers, has a good grasp of the issues facing Pennsylvania and firm ideas about how to address them, but her views have little widespread appeal.

Pashinski is a good fit for the 121st District and deserves a third term.

WAKE UP CITIZENS VOICE

Pashinski was first elected to his perch in 2006 defeating Christine Katsock, and took office in 2007 as stated on the states website, and as this is ONLY a 2 year term, his cycle would be as follows:

ELECTED     TERM PERIOD     Pashinski’s Term for CV
    2006                 07-08                             1
    2008                 09-10                             2
    2010                 11-12                             3
    2012                 13-14                             4
    2014                 15-16                             5    if he wins

In all fairness to the Citizens Voice, it’s easy to mistake how long Mr. Pashinski has actually been in Harrisburg, as he's done so LITTLE for the people he represents. Re-electing Pashinski is like hiring the Invisible Man as a door greeter at Wal-Mart.

From the comment section of the Citizens Voice

Mike Barnes has the RIGHT idea.

Don’t be as dumb as the Voice: VOTE 4 Betsy Summers, and get rid of the do nothings like Eddie Day Pashinski…..

Don’t Blow Smoke Up My @$$!!!!

For those of you in attendance at last night’s City Council meeting, you know that the city is refinancing THREE Bonds

24 Million Needed, Not to exceed 31 Million
3 Million Needed, Not to exceed 6 Million
1.8 Million Needed, Not to exceed 3 Million

The 2 daily newspapers covered the meeting, but only one accurately reported on what happened, but don’t take my word for it read both, and decide who reported what.

Thank you Times Leader for sending a reporter to our council meetings, and Thank you Citizens Voice for sending a warm body.  OK, I know that’s unfair and uncalled for, RIGHT?

Seriously read both articles. 

It’s as if the Times Leader attended the Wilkes-Barre City Council meeting, and the Voice, well, God knows what meeting they were at.

Councilman George Brown asked if the ordinances could make it clear that the city was not borrowing new money. Said Leighton: “No money from this bond refinancing is going into the general fund.”

  • OK so then why not be clear about nearly 29 Million needed, NOT 40 as requested?


City resident Frank Sorick asked that the bond refinancing be given more time for review because the details of the ordinances were not released until a few hours before the meeting. “For that reason alone I would ask that this motion be tabled and go no further until the public has the chance to digest what is being jammed down our throat once again,” he said.

  • Why not release the ordinances days prior to the meeting?

Could it have anything to do with the fact that when Lie-A-Ton first took office the city’s overall debt was around $60 Million TOTAL, and today we are close to $110 Million? So what took the city a lifetime to accumulate, Lie-A-Ton doubled in just 10 short years, but hey we have GOOD CREDIT RATING. 

From the comments of the Times Leader, Bill "Danger" Robinson 

FYI: Standard and Poor's an "A" is not the highest rating but rather the third highest. An "A" is deemed "somewhat more likely to be affected by adverse business conditions than are insurers with higher ratings."
