"Gracedale nursing home is on the market and could fetch $30 million. A funding deal for Bethlehem's SteelStacks performing arts center will net the county more money than originally anticipated. And, next year's budget is balanced a month early without a tax increase. Angle couldn't have gotten this far alone. The so-called Slate Belt bulldog relies on the support of an overwhelming conservative majority — Republicans outnumber Democrats 7-2 — and a patient, practical executive in Democrat John Stoffa."
"No matter what he says about me I still love him and that's not something he's used to," said Stoffa, who campaigned on a promise to develop better relations with council. In clashes with Stoffa's predecessor, Angle accused Glenn Reibman of wasting tax dollars and likened his administration to Hitler's Third Reich."
Gracedale was first said to probably bring in $35 million dollars, then 30, then 25 to 28. The truth is that the bids came in much much lower, or they surely would have revealed the numbers.
Oh, yeah, even the republicans don't care for Angles antics, they too are starting to move away from him. We will see how far in May.
The budget was reported to have been padded so that Angle could look good. The problem is that no matter what Angle does, he never looks good. That is because The People know who and what he truly is.
Angle was once overheard saying to another politician, "you will never get far in politics because your too honest" WOW, since the Mcall has reported the Angle has gone so far, we guess that means that Angle must be real dishonest.
Who would have thought Angle is dishonest? Only 92.22 percent of the Express Times readers. Oh, by the way, ET is proving to be a better read than Mcall these days. Perhaps we will drop our subscription of the Mcall and sign up for the ET.
Regarding Stoffa, we actually believe that Mr. Angle has promised Stoffa something good for his retirement. See, we know that Stoffa does not care for Angle much. But hey, he has to play the game. After all, he is on his last leg in politics.
More to come...
