Chesco Bucks Republican Disasters — We reported how Democrats won in Delaware County on Tuesday but it’s worth noting that one-time Republican machines were whipped in Chester and Bucks counties as well.
In Chesco, there was not a single state-wide or county victory. Every line office fell. Way to go Val.
Oh, and the ballot question giving the option to end school property tax was overwhelmingly dominated in the county by the special-interest dissenters with (unofficially) 55,444 no votes to 39,534 yes ones.
In Bucks, Democrats won sheriff, recorder of deeds, prothonotary, and county controller but the GOP won the district attorney race, and most Bucks voters chose Republicans Sallie Mundy (Supreme Court) Christine Fizzano Cannon (Commonwealth Court) and Craig Stedman (Superior Court) for the bench.
Bucks voters also voted against the ballot question 49,265 to 40,532.
I don’t think these Democrat gains are a particularly good thing. The Democrat Party is a cult run by wolves and populated by exceedingly obedient — and stupid — sheep.
But I’m not overly sad either. The GOP has controlled both house of the General Assembly since the start of the Millennium along with the governor’s office for six of those years, and the insidious banal corruption that burdens all our lives remains unaddressed. State (our) money continues to flow to institutions whose administrators make $3 million salaries. Public guaranteed pensions — that means working familes are on the hook — continue to spiral out of control with one person getting $477,591 for a life of leisure.
Teacher strikes remain legal. Tell us again why some are allowed to harm or threaten to harm children for money. Withholding education is obviously harming a child.
Public work projects continue to be inflated by 20 percent. That means, Springfield, that you are paying $30 million more for your new high school than you would otherwise. Why haven’t you made an issue of this Alex Charlton? Tom McGarrigle? Andy Reilly?
And Alex and Tom, how about legislative salaries? You really need $85,338.65, Alex?
Tom, of course, as senator gets $197.35 more.
And that doesn’t count per diems and other benefits.
Maybe it’s unfair to take out our ire on some poor prothonotary or sheriff but we the people are really getting sick of this.
