Higher Taxes - Lower Services!!

If you’ve been paying attention then you probably already know that just about everything is BIGGER in Texas, sorry, I mean Wilkes Barre.

  • Property Taxes are 26% BIGGER
  • All your fees from recycling to rental inspection are BIGGER
  • The price of easy rip, city, trash bags are BIGGER
  • City Cell Phone Bills are BIGGER than expected
  • City Hall bootlickers, Payroll are getting BIGGER

One thing is smaller Wilkes Barre, your EMS & Fire Rescue department

In other news:
  • Hawkeye Cameras are blind at night. 
You may have seen the first photo released following the hit and run of the 5 year old boy. Well several citizens began asking if the car was red or purple as the photo left a lot to be desired.

Come to find out, it was the best photo Kings College camera(s) could obtain, even though we have several Hawkeye cameras in the area. 

Then in another twist, a second photo is released, this one from the Bridal Shop owned by Tom Greco. Apparently John Majikes of WBPD went to Mr. Greco and requested his films, because once again Hawkeye saw or captured nothing!

All I can say is thank you, Kings College, and thank you, Tom Greco for quickly providing your surveillance records, and for actually maintaining a recording, unlike the overpriced, worthless, Hawkeye system that only seems to capture records from Barney Farms.

I am outraged at the repeated waste of taxpayer funds, and constant reduction in city services. In the Hawkeye case, it appears we spent millions blanketing the city with do noting cameras that can’t even help us find a scumbag who could hit a child and not even stop.

If the cameras really don’t cost $11,000 each, then where’s the money going?

Wake Up Wilkes Barre
