Senator Lisa M. Boscola said it best "The collection of over 23,300 signatures was a monumental success, not just for those advocates of Gracedale, but for democracy as a whole. Those of us in government, along with county government officials, should want, welcome and embrace the thousands of voices who spoke by lending their names to the petition. Now more than ever, it has become increasingly difficult to keep a cynical public engaged in their government. We constantly desire greater activism and want more people to become connected to their government. But roadblock decisions like this are precisely the cause for continued disconnect and disillusionment. Not allowing a referendum vote will disenfranchise these individuals, leaving them in the dark without a democratic voice. When have we ever seen 23,300 people in Northampton County come together via petition, lending their voice to a cause they care and believe so deeply in?"
And today, that very same engaged voice is once again saying something that should be heard and considered seriously by our County leadership...If it is accurate that Ilisa Sacknoff, (who is known to have used Ativan as a method and means to control especially the elderly afflicted with Alzheimer's she could not understand) is to be laid off at the end of September, We The People ask you Mr. Stoffa, don't hesitate, demonstrate that you do in fact serve and represent The People of the County - act now...release her now - for all the trouble she has caused the elderly citizens of our great Northampton County nursing home Gracesdale.
In our opinion, this poor excuse of a social worker has brought nothing more than shame and disgrace to those she should have been serving, as well as to you Mr. Stoffa...so where exactly does your loyalty lie, in her, or in The People who elected you?
Remember this message John:
The greater the loyalty of COAF to COAF, the greater the motivation among the members of COAF to achieve their goals, and greater became the probability that COAF would achieve their goals. And yes...today history shows the world they did achieve their mission...why? Because their loyalty was placed where it belonged - in He who delivers us.
Try it John, you will find peace in Him, and also in doing what is right!
