Clean - simply means that they are without blemish. That they refuse by their own will to sully their reputation or character conducting less than honest or ethical practices.
Veracious - truthful, honest...
Can we say that John Stoffa hold these two qualities? No, absolutely not. In our opinion, John Stoffa out right lied to We The People on more than one occasion, so we can't say he is veracious.
What about clean? Well, when a person is marked by duplicity, can they be clean? John Stoffa dealing with Gracedale, initially said he was not in favor of selling our much needed facility, but in the background he was scheming to do just that. And when Ron Angle failed, John Stoffa exposed his true colors. He sued the taxpayers (and lost) with tax dollars. Why would he do that if he was clean? No, We The People don't believe he is clean.
What about Ross Marcus? So glad you asked...Ross is known by We The People as "The Weasel". Generally speaking a weasel is neither clean nor veracious. Mr. Marcus during a meeting at Gracedale was asked if he would want his loved ones in the hands of Ilisa Sacknoff, he replied something to the effect "no...not if what you people are saying is true". He then promoted her to another position in county employment to get her out of Gracedale.
Recently, John Stoffa announced layoffs...Ms. Sacknoff was to be laid off, but days before her exit Mr. Marcus, with Mr. Stoffa's permission promoted her to another position. All this while terminating a couple of good employees for calling them snakes.
The elections next year should prove to be very interesting, if We The People cast our votes correctly...we can have both...clean and veracious government.
It's time to remove the vermin!
