Mover & Shaker of the month...

I was interested in doing interviews with a mover & shaker once a month from the North Hills community. This could be a local politician, school board member or someone who constitutes a leader in your community.

These interviews would give good insight into these people and what they have to say about issues in your local neighborhood.

Dan DeMarco, Ross Township Commissioner, will be the first one. Who else should this Tattler interview in the future?

Feel free to post a comment or E-mail me at sirfuller@hotmail.com.

Working to keep you posted...

Sirfuller, I think you are friends with DeMarco and want him to get elected to Bennington's seat. He did not support the citizens wishes on the Bennet Woods vote, but DeMarco will want the votes of the these same Ross citizens. I don't think he will get the votes.
We have someone else in mind for the seat.

I have previously said that I think he would be a good candidate for the position. I won't, however, be endorsing a candidate until I know who they are. I also would be willing to give those candidates a spot on this blog.

The funny thing is that this legislative district usually decides the election in the Democratic primary. This Tattler is a registered Republican so I, likely, won't have much of a say in the election.

I also sorta like Frank Pistella, former representative for nearly 20 years. I think his ousting in 2006 probably gave him a reality check and he could once again become a good leader for the area.

I think he has learned from his mistakes over the past 2 years.

Now if someone could get rid of Don Walko, that would be great. Thanks.

Man I hope I can hold out long enough to be able to sell my place before everything from the Butler County line south is section 8 housing and check cashing stores.

What a freaking left-wing mess the region is turning into.

I totally agree with the above comment. The question is what do we do about it? The commissioners don't listen to the people and when the people speak up they are charged with discrimination and the representatives of the people pretend like they don't know what is going on. Our representative(Jerry O'Brien) doesn't even show up for important meetings when his vote could make a difference. What is a poor voter to do? Guess we will have to find some new blood in these places.

"What is a poor voter to do?"

Unfortunately, probably nothing at this point. Not enough people seem to remember the late seventies and the last time a barking moon-bat from the left sat in the White House and had two houses of Congress controlled by Democrats to do his bidding and so we drift further to the left and from reason and logic everyday.

A return to gas lines and rationing, double digit unemployment and interest rates chaos on wall street might shake some people out of their slumber, maybe. I suspect though that by then the health care industry will have been completed eviscerated by universal health care, social security's debt problem will have manifested and there will be no easy way to extract ourselves from the mess.

Every time I think of the 2008 election a dread grows in me that Pat Buchanan was right; the union will not survive. Not in any meaningful way any way.

A little doom and gloom don't you think? Pat Buchanan? Come on!

Although I will give you the benefit of the doubt because I wasn't even around until January 30, 1980.
