I see Sandie putting in a lot of work and effort here. Not so much from the others. And, did I hear them say the BCSO has a separate and different set of HR files? Wtf?

What is the reason that employees do not want to punch the clock? My answer is NO FUCKING WAY! You clock in and out just like the rest of America.

Here is a random suggestion : How about addressing the elephant that is in the room ? How about addressing the fact, that County Controller, David Rossi, his Chief Deputy William Calhoun, along with Attorney Albert Torrence, and others, are working out of the courthouse, to run a company called iCPR. Now that iCPR has been revealed for what they are doing, are they allowed to keep running their business while in the courthouse ? Is this not, at the very least, an ethics violation ?? Is it easier just to give/leak this story to a media source, rather than discuss it in a public forum like the one in this video ? Myself and “many” other residents of this county are VERY interested in this story, and will be watching how it plays out amongst you all. P.S. let’s not forget Wayne Kress, just happening on some properties Calhoun and Rossi gave him a heads up on. PLEASE provide us with the answers we deserve regarding iCPR. Thank You.

How much time is going to be spent on the Fallston Bridge? Tear the damn thing down. All this silliness about it being a a walking bridge, a bicycle bridge. How about a people throwing crap off the bridge into the river bridge? If they can sell it, SELL IT! Are we going to put money into this thing so that 10 people can walk from the end of New Brighton to Fallston once in their lifetime? There is nothing on either end of it to attract anyone but the occasional vandal.
