Luzerne County Needs Home Rule

Is anybody else embarrassed by our elected officials? I sure am. It almost seems like they are in a contest to see who can make the dumbest comment to the press. At least I only voted for one of our commissioners.

Home rule will probably fail again as the voters overwhelmingly vote democrat and almost always believe the line of shit that is fed to them by the politicians. Greggy and Toddy shot down home rule last time just by telling people to vote against it. Now Greg says he is willing to listen. I wonder if that's because he knows he won't be re-elected anyway? Petrilla and Urban appear to be trying to right about a century of wrongs but time will tell exactly what they can accomplish.

I think for Home Rule to have any shot, we will need a strong grassroots effort. I am hoping my fellow bloggers, both from the right and the left, will get behind this.

have a great weekend!!

I believe that Home Rule should go beyond party lines. It isn't a Republican or Democratic choice, it is the intelligent and right one. Hopefully it gets the support it needs. I'll be printing off a petition form. Hopefully others in the area will get behind it.
