To the editor: As owner of the Catawese Coach Lines Inc., I applied for financial assistance from the Northumberland County commissioners through Coronavirus Aid (CARES) Act. The county commissioners rejected my application without explanation.

Catawese Coach, like many businesses, is struggling financially because of the pandemic. The pandemic required us to cancel all bus trips since March. However, the company continues our LATS local bus routes to ensure that public transportation is available. Despite the significant loss of revenue, we still must employ staff to maintain LATS local bus service.

The county is poorly managed. The commissioner structure does not work.
