There's a couple topics I feel need to be addressed.We'll start with the Rick Pollitt/Daily Times situation.
I met Rick Pollitt around nine years ago and found him to be a really nice guy with great intentions. Back then he proved to the public he was all about open government and expressed it quite a bit on his campaign trail.
Today, County Executive Rick Pollitt is making it almost impossible to obtain specific information the Daily Times is requesting referencing charges on the County's Credit Card.
The Daily Times asked the County to relieve them of the $800.00+ charges the Executive wants to charge the DT's for copies of the past three years worth of statements and quite frankly it's obvious Rick has something to hide.
After following Rick on his Campaign, it amazes me how much Rick has forgotten where he came from. Rick, there's an election coming up and for what it's worth, I think the taxpayers are going to make you REMEMBER where you came from and the majority will vote for Bob Culver instead.
Now, let's talk about Laura Mitchell. Did you know there's NOTHING in the County Charter that says a candidate can not actually sit on TWO elected positions. That's right. According the the County's Charter Laura Mitchell can hold both City and County Council seats. On top of that Laura is also running for a Central Committee seat AND she's already involved with the MML.
With all due respect Laura, this clearly proves you could actually hold a real job in the real world and the ONLY reason I can see Laura running for the County Council is because it delivers a bigger paycheck.
Now, I did some research last night and spoke to a Congressman who told me that there is state law forbidding Mrs. Mitchell from holding two elected positions but they couldn't recite the actual legislation. So we'll see about that.
By the way, it's still snowing in Delmar.
