Tuesday’s news [follow up to joint meeting; heroism, letters & fog] – 5/29/2018

Not news news, but … there’s talk about having open primary elections in PA. Pennsylvania is one of just 11 states that restricts its citizens and impedes them from being represented.

Could not find this at the Borough Website, but this employment position (Administrative Assistant – Borough of Columbia – Columbia, PA 17512) is listed at Indeed.com.

Christine Macready of West Hempfield Township has a particularly well written sentiment in her letter-to-the editor in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster. It’s not yet online, but she finishes the letter with “And here is a little history lesson: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were liberals. It was the conservatives who wanted to stay with England.

And Columbia’s Ronald E. Waugh’s letter is equally well-crafted as he condemns the absence of morality and ethics in the reigning party.

  1. Thanks to LNP for making a meeting that made no sense sound like it was productive. Either way, whether they go to Chestnut Street or remain at the Locust Street location, the taxpayers will foot the bill for years to come. The architect said he was not aware that he was to make a presentation. Hard to understand that prior to a joint meeting there is not clear communication. How difficult can it be?
