"Slash" and Byrnes swan song--"Now you see it, now you don't"

So in the final weeks of the lame duck reign of terror the team of Chris "Slash, 'cause I'm a 'fiscal conservative'" Reilly and Byrne decided not only to inflict an utterly unknowledgable and inexperienced sports promoter as the Director of Voter Registration and Elections; they also decided to play a cruel bait and switch game of "now you see it, now you don't" with sorely needed redistricting of some of the County's fastest growing muncipalities and therefore most overburdened polling places.

True to their pattern, they most unconservatively doled out a five figure contract to a consulting firm--whose recommendations they chose to ignore....except for one.

And even that one comes with a caveat.,

West Manheim Township will finally be divided into TWO polling places.   Not the THREE as recommended by the pricey expert consultant.

While other rapidly growing Townships like Carroll and Springfield--also recommended for multiple polling places (one of which sent a strong letter to the Commissioners requesting a division) will be left to stew in their juices.

The real juice is the pizzing away taxpayer resources on a feel-good study that, in the end, was not worth the paper it was printed on.

The same apparent worth as letter from municipal officials.

Which last I checked wasn't even accorded the decency of acknowledgement much less reply.,

To the new Commissioners:  Please create your own legacy.   You don't want to continue building on the previous Board's house of cards.

Life is an Orthros.
