I am responding to the article “County council attacks criticized” (Sept. 3), which reports on the in-fighting and name-calling during Luzerne County Council meetings.
Wow, how embarrassing is that? I guess that we get the democracy that we deserve, but I thought that we were better than this.
I feel the need to remind Councilman Stephen A. Urban that it was under his assistance and direction as a county commissioner that we find ourselves in today’s financial straits. I suppose he was elected as a councilman in the hopes that he would assume the role of watch dog on our behalf, a role he failed at as a commissioner. It might be time for Mr. Urban to take another fishing trip in order to collect his thoughts and get his priorities straight.
