Mercer County Commissioner Debate Wrap-up

The Herald (Sharon, PA) has a wrap-up of last night's debate.

According to the article, there weren't any bombshells dropped. The only interesting part is that the democratic candidates (Brian Beader and Kenneth Ammann) seem to differ on issues, such as taxation and the recent bank building purchase made by the county.

Oddly, Ammann said he didn't have enough info to make a decision about the purchase. Ummm...you are running for commissioner - and this issue has been in the news a good bit lately. The election is not far away. You might want to consider learning about current topics in the next week!

Sadly, the article had a very small section on taxation. It would have been nice to read about what they thought about our current situation - especially the economic plundering done by former commissioners a handful of years ago. The way the article is written, it sounds like Ammann wants to cut taxes and no one else does. Huh? A little in-depth reporting would have solved that confusion.

Transcripts, anyone?

I was also hoping that the commissioner debates were archived. I searched the News Talk 790 and Mercer County League of Women's Voters sites to no avail. I would suggest that everyone email 790 and ask that they archive local political debates in the future!
