What exactly does that mean?
Instead of being commended for working together, Council members Ken Kraft and Tom Dietrich are being attacked for proposing a bipartisan effort to bring about changes that will ALLOW the citizens of NorCo to select certain positions in government, instead of permitting Stoffa types to appoint their cronies.
He says: "
Since 1978, when Northampton County's Home Rule Charter was adopted, the row
officers are appointed positions. Professionalism replaced politics."
We The People say: There is absolutely no professionalism when you're appointing your "crony" friends (or puppets), just hobnobbing. As far as We The People are concerned, We The People should be making such appointments by the power of our votes. In so doing we have no complaint if we elect the wrong person (like electing Angle and Stoffa), but realizing the error we can correct it like we did with Angle, and like we're preparing to do with Stoffa.
There's a 4 p.m. personnel meeting today where discussion on this subject will take place. If you can't make the meeting...you can watch on-line: northamptoncounty.org
