State Rep Aaron Bernstine Slams Beaver School Board’s Decision To Fund Pool Renovations

State Representative Aaron Bernstine (Republican-Beaver/Butler/Lawrence) has made clear his opposition to a recent decision by the Republican-led Beaver Area School Board to spend up to $5 million renovating its natatorium and constructing a new indoor pool.

Although the school district is not located in Bernstine’s area of representation, he took to Facebook on Saturday with a harsh warning for any school officials in his own 10th Legislative District who might have similar spending ideas.

“A message to every school board member in my entire district,” Bernstine wrote to his reelection campaign’s Facebook page, “don’t even THINK about pulling this kind of nonsense. It won’t happen in the 10th district, and if it does…. it will be the last time you are ever elected to anything. #itsYOURMoney #QUITspending”

I don’t hear anyone ranting and raging about the football and basketball spending.
The school board has a plan that shows how the pool will benefit the students and the community. Swimming is a healthy activity for all ages, and pretty safe as well.
This man is speaking out of turn; overextending his authority for some reason.

“…and if it does…. it will be the last time you are ever elected to anything.” Spoken like a true Trumper. Goodbye Democracy. Goodbye Republic. Hello Dictatorship and an Enemies List. WTFDYTYA?

We are not a democracy, we are a republic. Also it doesn’t mean this legislator is a Trumper, as some republicans hate Trump, too. One last thing; I have always enjoyed and agreed with many of your posts and I am shocked that you can be so partisan.

True. This republic is operant on democratic principles (most of the time). Check into Bernstein’s background, and you will see that I am not far wrong in his political actions/leanings. Thanks, though, for the info. As far as being partisan — I didn’t start being dead set against 45’s incompetent madness, but now his intentional, and default, destruction of American political and legal institutions is beyond any doubt, I’ll oppose him at every opportunity. He’s dangerous. In the future, “trump—-” will be a root generic term to describe a kakistocracy , as he is and will be the worst POTUS in American history. Under those circumstances, being partisan is no problem. it’s survival.

“Although the school district is not located in Bernstine’s area of representation ….”

Then STFU, good sir.

“#itsYOURmoney”

Yes, it is; it’s theirs, not yours. Again, STFU, kind gentleman.

PS: You seem to need remedial English instruction. “its” = posssession; “it’s” = it is. You are most welcome. Now go back to the 10th Legislaative District and leave other people alone.

Bernstein’s down on the farm territoriality is well known. Too bad he missed the casting tryouts for Swamp People.

Hey Aaron, stick to your own district and worry about that. Or perhaps there is another college journalist you would like to attack and then delete your tweet… Moron!
