Commissioners Amadio, Egley, and Camp / photo by John Paul

Republican Beaver County Commissioner Sandie Egley says the proposed 2018 budget does nothing to address the county’s serious financial problems. Egley’s lengthy remarks were made during today’s public work session, with her criticizing fellow Republican Commissioner Dan Camp and Democratic Commissioner Tony Amadio for what she called their failure to make the hard decisions necessary to prevent a continued downward spiraling of the county’s budget.

“I don’t think that we’re making the decisions that are in the best interest of the county and where we are right now, and dealing with the things we’re dealing with,” concluded Egley, who rattled off a laundry list of budgetary proposals she has made that have been rejected by her fellow Commissioners.

Commissioners Camp and Amadio refused to respond to Commissioner Egley’s remarks when asked their thoughts about the proposed budget during a question and answer session at the end of the meeting.

Commissioner Sandie Egley’s remarks can be heard in this 12 minute recording by the Beaver Countian:

How can we expect any different when the SAME violators are reelected time and time again

The male commissioners need to grow a pair, forget their old buddies, and pass a budget that will help heal the county’s budget and get rid of the crap that can be outsourced. If the people in Economy want that pool kept open, buy it from the county and sell pool passes. Hunting licenses… go to a sporting goods store dog licenses go to the humane society. Do county employees want something notarized? Have them pay the normal rate and not a discount. Get rid of the retired employees working the thousand hours, stop letting the B.C.S.O take cars home. There is so much that could be done to trim the fat of wasteful spending.

It’s time for Amadio and Camp to step down. Sandie needs better Commissioners by her.

Amadio and Camp sit in a state of confusion. Camp is so bored with Commissioner Egley’s lengthy remarks, that he scans through his phone, with complete indifference to real time proceedings. Amadio, will occasionally ask a question. The questions he will pose are always ones he knows the answer to. Somehow he must feel that makes him seem informed. No solutions, or planning is offered by either commissioner. These two are working for some friends who might really give them hell about their decisions. They are not working for ALL Beaver Countians. The Financial Administrator, warns of a bleak economic future for Beaver County …. and what do we get “NO COMMENT.” It’s time for everyone to give them hell, and demand some accountability.
