Worth the fight

Although we didn’t win our campaign to unseat incumbent Supervisor Fluhr, we in Shohola Township have accomplished something unheard of: 304 write-in votes. That’s 304 votes for transparency in government, for all residents to be treated with respect, and for responsible use of our tax dollars.

The voters of Shohola have sent a clear message that we will no longer stand silent for politics as usual, and I am truly encouraged, because it is now clear that change in leadership is not only wanted but, without a doubt, possible.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all those who had the courage to support my campaign. With creativity and thoughtful attention to the needs and concerns of citizens, there’s so much that can be done to improve the quality of life in Shohola.

I will continue to work hard to make that positive change happen.

Re Wayne County Commissioner Brian Smith’s comments of concern

Fight the fight or result in blight

Wayne’s Commission has a function

to stop the DEP’s bad gumption

To damn the dams

homeowners’ faces will clam

Property values will drop some

starting owners to pick up ‘n run

We’ve been wounded... still feel sore

Glorious Luxton Lake is no more

PA owners can still score

Keep your lakes forever more.

Re IMHO ‘Trick or treat’

Jonathan Charles Fox—you’ve got to be kidding me! In regards to your comment about the drag show, benefiting the WJFF radio station being a little too “bawdy,” “for a less rural audience.” Give me a break! We are adults up here in Sullivan County and can easily laugh at the great humor of the WIGSTICKS troupe. The emcee was named Ermine Muff for God’s sake! Get in on the joke! I think you and your dog need to attended only the “G rated” events up here and let someone else at The River Reporter cover the wonderful variety of entertainment, be it blue or otherwise, in our neighborhoods. And of course, that’s in my humble opinion. Snap!

What about the Halseys?

On September 28, at a meeting to discuss the proposed Ferry Street marina in Long Eddy, I asked Delaware Highlands Conservancy Executive Director Sue Currier to clarify what were the property’s land-title issues alluded to in the press and at previous meetings. Her reply was: “I don’t know. I am not an attorney.”
