Thievery afoot

How can this Shamokin City Council go to the county for more tax money and then go out and spend $90,000 for the railroad tracks on Commerce Street? C’mon. There’s a thief in City Hall — it’s all city council and the mayor.

When editor does next “ cheers and jeers”, I hope you give it to the County Commissioners and especially the solicitor Mr Garrigan. It’s no coincidence that Garrigan advised county to refuse property tax abatement for Sunbury Community Hospital and the hospital’s announcement that it was shutting down 10 days later. County wants to play hardball. Nice move. Now, no property tax monies AND no hospital. Complete incompetence. Commission and Solicitor should be removed.

First Wood Mode, now the hospital.


Easy job - Evidently you will have plenty of time to work at your golf game as well...
