Luzerne County Home Rule

I am both surprised and dismayed to learn that some of our elected county officials are dead set against the proposed changes. Most surprising is that I have heard that Steve Urban is leading the parade against any change.

I can certainly understand being against anybody that drew up the charter being allowed to be put in office because of the charter but against the whole thing?? I have to ask, is this a hedge in case Mr. Urban loses his senate bid? If so, that is right up there with Arlen Specter switching parties because he didn't want a primary to decide his political fate.

Urban has been a great watchdog for the citizens of Luzerne County and would serve us well as a state senator. That being said, I'd like him to explain in detail, his stance on the home rule charter. The citizens of Luzerne County have suffered enough under the corrupt Democratic rule of this county for far too long. I am inclined to think that any change could only be for the good. Please tell us all Mr. Urban, why changing the culture of corruption under the dome is going to be a bad thing other than losing your commissioner job.

Got to think that if they have an 11 person council that it will be 11 Democrats. Being a Democrat, that might be a good idea but putting community first means maybe it isn't such a bad idea that the minority has a stake in the government.
