I would love to sit down and help with this committee. I’ve been down at the festival for several years and there are several cuts that have been made

LOL Beaver County tax is 6 times higher than Allegheny. Hopewell’s school tax is 5 times higher than West Allegheny’s school tax. and everyone is concerned about a syrup festival. Looks like our politicians should run for Senate or Congress. they could care less about the little guy as well and not concerned with matters or cuts that really matter. Beaver county is like Enron a bad financial investment.

Every year, there are tons of people that stand in line for hours to pay something like $9 a head, with cash mind you, for breakfast that probably cost $2 and was prepared by volunteers. Plus whatever they charge vendors, collect from sponsors, etc. etc. Yeah, they didn’t make any money. And Nick Perry pulled 666 in the daily lottery by pure coincidence too.

And why are the commissioners spending any time with this group anyway? Isn’t there enough to do in actual county business? I think Egley had the right idea, the county should flush this turd. Although maybe Camp with his tremendous business acumen will turn it around. I wonder what his excuse will be next year when it loses a shit ton of money again under his *chuckle* leadership.

I believe the county bought 3,000 gallons of maple syrup from New York State to fulfill the quantity needed for the festival.
