Lynn Evans for Plains Twp Commissioner
She's been a Wilkes-Barre Area School Director for a few years and wouldn't go along with all the tax giveaways that have been proposed. Plains has a windfall because of the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs that promises to put another $2 million into the coffers of our local Burgh. Our present town fathers/commisioners want to spend it as a fast as it comes in. Maybe they should take some of the money and put it into what has been called a rainy day fund. Stashing away a few bucks to cover the costs of a major snow storm like the one we got on Valetines Day or the summer flooding is a good idea. Right now there are no plans to do that.
