The LuLac Edition #3194, April 22nd, 2016
Before a jam packed crowd of 400 movers and shakers, neighbors, relatives and friends, Solano accepted the award in his typical humble but classy manner.
Governors Corbett, Ridge and Schweiker were on the scene as well as Senators Casey and Toomey. Plus there were tons of local politicos and statewide officials honoring him. Past President of the Society A.J. Sordoni was there along with other officials for the organization’s spring meeting.
Solano has served in administrations in Harrisburg dating back to the Constitutional Convention in 1967.
He was executive director for the General State Authority, which after the 1968 constitutional convention ended became the Department of General Services. Solano was Deputy Secretary of the Department of Environmental Resources, and served as senior counselor to Governors Tom Ridge and Mark Schweiker.
EDITORS NOTE: Many thanks to Michael Clark President of Surmont, Washington, D.C. and former aide to Congressman Dan Flood for the invitation to sit at his table. Unfortunately a work commitment kept me from getting there.
Bernie Sanders came into Scranton Thursday. Sanders preached his message of income inequality and drew a good crowd in Scranton. Sanders volunteers are out in full force. Tonight a friendly Sanders volunteer stopped by our house and we had a nice conversation. Civil. How ‘bout that???
Senator Ted was the first one in the state and has been buttonholing voters in his bid to rebound after his big Wisconsin win. Cruz has been hitting the hot button issues of security, jobs and defense that GOP voters like to hear this year. His event in Scranton drew a good and enthusiastic crowd.
Hillary Clinton is here as we speak. Plus Donald Trump will arrive on Monday we’re told. More information in future editions.
You have to see John Morganelli’s Law and Order style ad. Morganelli is running as a Democrat for State Attorney General along with Stephen Zappalla and Josh Shapiro.
“Is it any wonder that Americans have lost faith in their government?” Barletta said. “More than half of IRS employees who owe significant back taxes are still working at the very agency that collects taxes. It’s like having Lance Armstrong lead a task force on fair competition in bicycle racing.”
The legislation specifically prohibits the IRS from extending an offer of employment to any individual until the Secretary of the Treasury submits written certification to Congress that the agency does not employ anyone with serious tax delinquencies. If the Secretary cannot make such a certification, he or she must submit a report explaining why, outline the remedial actions necessary to make such a certification, and indicate the time needed to complete the actions. The bill applied to all offers of employment after December 31, 2016.
“Tax Day was earlier this week, marking that painful day when millions of Americans had to sit down and write a check to the IRS,” Barletta said. “It is outrageous that the people who receive and process those checks may not have paid their own taxes. This is an offensive situation that has to be fixed.”
