Do your elected officials at the state and local level even care about you?

Share

By Printus LeBlanc at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Judging by a few recent announcements, it appears elected officials don’t care about American citizens. The California Attorney General just announced any employer obeying federal immigration laws would face state charges. Many in Congress are trying to shut the federal government down if amnesty is not given to illegal immigrants. Have they ever threatened to shut down the government over education, homelessness, military pay, or veterans care? I don’t think so.

Newly elected New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was sworn in on Tuesday, January 16, and he made his priorities known immediately. Unfortunately, his priorities have nothing to do with New Jersey citizens, but more to do with illegal immigrants. The

Simmons Announces State Grant for Sewer System Improvements in Emmaus

Share

HARRISBURG – Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Montgomery/Northampton) today announced the awarding of a $260,000 state grant for a sewage system improvement project in Emmaus, Lehigh County. Simmons played a key role in securing the funding through the Department of Community and Economic Development’s small water and sewer grant program.

 

Specifically, the grant will be used by Emmaus Borough to repair 100 severely damaged manholes and correct an inflow problem that was discovered through inspections. The borough is working to comply with an administrative order from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to separate storm water from the sewage system, which flows to the Allentown Sewage Treatment Plant.

 

“Emmaus officials have worked extremely hard to complete this project. However, they have

REPUBLICAN PARTY: The Republican Party has internal rules that Party members (R-Committee) must support the Party’s nominees or else risk being thrown out of the Party.

CONGRESSMAN CHARLIE DENT: Republican Congressman Dent went on national TV and announced that he will not support the Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump. Trump won anyway.

CHARLIE DENT THE HYPOCRITE: One of Mr. Dent’s administrative assistants was elected Lehigh County Republican Party head. Her name is Jessica Bonatai. Once in office Ms Bonatai has been reportedly moving to remove Trump supporters from the Lehigh County Republican Committee. Looks like Charlie Dent saying– do as I say– not as I do! Also, we are receiving reports that the Northampton County Republican Party

** PROPERTY TAX INDEPENDENCE ACT TOWN HALL MEETING **

—–Monday Night, February 13th–Town Hall Meeting

 

Please join us in Lebanon this Monday night, February 13, when we’ll be presenting the facts about the Property Tax Independence Act by people who really do understand the legislation. You know… people who’ve actually read it!

Ron Boltz will make the presentation followed by a question and answer session with a panel that will include Jim Rodkey and David Baldinger.

Lower Macungie Township Commissioner Ron Beitler’s explanation of his Budget vote.

Share

 

http://www.mcall.com/news/local/eastpenn/mc-lower-macungie-sewer-rates-20161219-story.html

For those who might be interested in an explanation of my “no” vote. I found myself in the position of having to vote “No” on the yearly township budget again. Despite finding myself in this place now two years in a row, it is not a position I like, seek or expect to find myself in year after year.

However, as it is the biggest decision we make over the course of a year – and understanding one shouldn’t expect to ever be 100% satisfied when on a township governing body with the reality of “5 cooks in a kitchen” – I found myself in the familiar position of having serious issues with major components.

Below, is some
