The Commonwealth Foundation’s Weekly Update

Dear CF Friend,I wanted to let you know about two important victories today for the citizens and taxpayers of Pennsylvania:

1. Two labor transparency bills were passed out of Senate Appropriations and are now ready for the Senate’s full consideration.

Two bills by Sens. Folmer and Stefano, respectively, aim to shed some much-needed light on the public-union collective bargaining process, and allow taxpayers to get informed about the contracts paid for by their tax dollars. Gov. Wolf’s spokesperson has already indicated that the Governor will consider signing these bills.

2. Two important educational freedom bills passed out of House committee.

HB 805, sponsored by state Rep. Stephen Bloom would end seniority-based layoffs in Pennsylvania public schools, focusing on performance and effectiveness instead. Rep. Jim

Who are the Tax-Hikers (Lehigh County)?

Share

by Joe Hilliard at Leadership for Liberty

Many school board elections are decided in the primary cycle since most candidates can “cross-file” which means they can enter the race as both a Democrat and a Republican candidate. The logic is that school board directors are supposed to be non-partisan.

However, party identification is not the real issue. The real issue is to identify who are the “Tax-Hikers” in your school district? Normally, many think Tax-Hikers are only Democrats while Republicans fight proposed tax increases. The sad reality is that Tax-Hikers exist in both political parties in our school districts.

The list shows all the school directors in Lehigh County and how they voted for the last two budgets. Blue means the Director has

State Representative Ryan Mackenzie endorses Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli for E.P. School Board

Share

To Whom It May Concern:

It is my pleasure to endorse Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli in the race for the East Penn School Board to be held on Primary Election Day – May 19, 2015.

Knowing both Carol and Chris, I can personally attest to the great knowledge and passion they would bring to the school board. They are also both very active involved in the community and have an understanding of the issues facing public education.

If elected, Carol and Chris would serve to strengthen education and protect taxpayers. We need people like them to stand up for families and our community on the East Penn School Board.

Please consider voting for Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli on Tuesday, May 19th!

Sincerely, Ryan

Can School Board’s do Anything About Common Core?

Share

The short answer is a robust YES! This question gets centered on the East Penn School Board race. In the May Primary, conservative candidates Carol Allen and Chris Donatelli made a statement in their campaign literature that they wanted to oppose Common core and return to local control. The Teacher’s Union backed slate and their political operatives immediately jumped on this and continue to this day. The union operatives claim that Allen and Donatelli are naïve in that school board’s must follow the mandates of the state and federal governments. While it is true that Pennsylvania has adopted Common Core and renamed it Pennsylvania Core Standards, there are many ways to blunt the negative impacts of this program and

Emmaus garbage charges, Truth or Trash?

Share

In the recent 2015 spring edition, Emmaus Newsletter; an explanation is given for the change in garbage pick-ups and rates in respects to garbage and compost.

I like to call it garbage vs compost; as these were two separate items whose costs were paid for in two completely different methods. Now it seems that the borough wants to combine it into one bill. Let’s see if the math adds up.

The garbage is paid for through the collection of the Refuse Bill. This bill is calculated based on a contracted price that gets approved by Emmaus Borough Council. The borough administration figures out how much to bill each customer based on this approved contract price and the amount of customers in the borough.

The Pennsylvania Primary Election

by LVC Staff

A CONSERVATIVE PERSPECTIVE And ENDORSEMENTS

Pennsylvania’s Primary Election is right around the corner at May 19, 2015 from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm. We are going to give you, our readers, a look at this election from a conservative view point. We will not have very much to say about Democrat candidates since conservative Democrats are all but extinct! Instead we will report on the Republican races that matter since most Republicans claim to be conservative. We say “claim to be” and that may be a problem. So let us get started.

PENNSYLVANIA SUPREME COURT—Never in its history has the Commonwealth had 3 vacancies on the Supreme Court, except this year! There are six Republicans seeking the party’s nomination for
