Beaver County Board of Fuck Faces with council. Can’t they just get rid of Nathan Morgan and save the taxpayers some money???


1.1 million on Brush Creek Park?? Who’s pocket did THAT go in??


Call the local police for immediate responses to poll place irregularities. Then look into the legal problems with a lawyer later. This is a common problem for some places, where the candidates and their workers sit around like hungry buzzards and swoop down on voters. 30 votes in local primary could win you the election.

I would like to see or read an interview between JP and Egley before voting her in as Treasurer. I’m sick and tired of being lied to and then they do a 180 after election. As for the rest, I wouldn’t give them a fucking dime if they were starving to death.


I would have liked to see Sandie go into a little more detail about the $1.1 million over 2 years for Brush Creek. (And I think that is a lot for most people’s checkbook.)
What was the money used for? Was this a one time improvement or an ongoing expense? How much is spent on the other parks in the county and how does $550,000 per year compare? How much is the park utilized?
This would be a story I would be very interested in reading if JP were to look into it!
