"Since I began my term of office in January of 2006 up until today, not counting the proposed bond that you will vote on today for Gracedale, this administration with County Councils approval has spent $27,970,378.00 on capital expenditures at Gracedale. People say we haven't done anything up there, that's not true. We spent nearly 28 million dollars."
The first problem with that statement is...he did not specify where that money went. You see, he did not outline specifically what items of necessity at Gracedale required 28 million dollars. He also failed to indicate what years he spent how much so that we could verify it. We the People don't arbitrarily say: "they haven't done anything at Gracedale". No...we have witnessed the neglect first-hand. Just like we have seen many other county owned buildings under his administrations watch neglected as well. The second problem is, he made it sound like the bond vote was for Gracedale specifically, but as usual, he was not clear where the additional 4.3 million that he spoke about would be going.
The best part of his report however, was his opening remark: "In case anyone is interested, I'm down to 140 days, but who's counting?".
"Your wife" said Mr. Cusick.
This comment of course brought some laughter. What we found interesting about the comment was that it appeared to be mocking the taxpayers of the County. From our perspective, he seemed to be implying that he shafted the taxpayers by using tax-resources (Stoffa-Gift) to sue the taxpayers on a partisan issue, and there is nothing we can do about it. What a despicable view. But, we're sure that in the end - JUSTICE will prevail...And patiently we wait!
Nor-Co, between John Stoffa and Ron Angle our County has suffered so much corruption.
Mr. Stoffa, you sir are a disgraceful man.
And while your trying to get up on a high horse to showcase yourself as such a wonderful administrator (so that when your 140 days are up you will be praised for all your misdeeds), we know the TRUTH. The TRUTH sir is: your a deceiver...a liar!
And We Don't Need...
...No Stinking LIAR!
