The LuLac Edition #1097, Feb. 14th, 2010



On Friday during Edition #1094 we highlighted the State GOP of 1966 getting all their endorsements in a row during the middle week of February. The top of the ticket went on to win that year too. This time around, 44 years later the State GOP is following the ’66 model and endorsing a field of candidates with very little primary opposition. Bucks County Commissioner Jim Cawley won the endorsement for Lieutenant Governor from the Republican State Committee , savoring victory onthe second-ballot voting shortly after party insiders also endorsed former Congressman Pat Toomey for Senate and Attorney General Tom Corbett for Governor. Support for Toomey and Corbett had been a given for months so the filling of the second spot rounds everything out just nicely for the state GOP.


Luzerne County has come up a winner. Finally. I guess. Turns out we have more staffing than most counties in the Commonwealth. That is not a big secret. Commissioners want to study proposals to cut, the budget director’s interest is piqued by the news and it appears there will be a struggle with the unions and the county administration. All the more reason to lay off every county employee except the management team and the elected officers. Have them reapply for their jobs after rightsizing (companies in the corporate world use that term anymore) and you’ll have a more responsive workforce. Note to politicos: if you want to have a bloated payroll and get away with: DON’T STEAL. People might not notice one but they’ll certainly take note of two major discrepancies in government.


King’s College students had a massive fundraiser for the victims of the Haiti earthquake this weekend. The event earmarked money for the people still suffering in that nation.

David, I understand that AFSCME wants to make you Man of the Year!

Seriously, You really believe that the county management team should stay? Did you just read the arbitration award at the prison? Thats was a good example of the county's management team at work. I'll explain that to you during our next lunch date.

Dave, you're on the wrong horse. There is nothing wrong with the employees, it is the management team that really needs to be fired. I wonder if before you decided that what you read in the paper (HA) is true, you checked the facts? You do know I'm sure you have -- that we have the largest senior citizen populated county in the state? Do you realize the portion of county government that is devoted to social services and is paid by state and federal government? Do you realize those numbers are a part of the entire employee package? Does it matter? Apparently no it doesn't, just join the mob and continue to beat the employee drum till it breaks. One more question, will your life be better when your neighbor who earns $31000 after 11 years with the county is fired? Will you really feel all that better? If 100 people lose their county job, will that make your life better? Don't you and the other idiots realize that it is the half billion dollar debt that has us broke, not your neighbor's job? WTF man, where is your Christian attitude? Why does putting someone else out of work make you happy? You sing Pribulla's praises but I haven't heard any ideas coming from his expertise. Why not do what the school district did and fire him and hire a company that serves as the business manager. At least two school districts that I know of have done that. Opps, forgot Pribula is a relative. OK, Keep Pribula and fire the others.

I couldnt agree with this more...
"All the more reason to lay off every county employee except the management team and the elected officers. "

Thats exactly what this county needs. No more pat my back and I'll pat yours mentality.
