Take me out to the ballgame

“I would never solicit tickets. It would feel like it’s graft.They’re asking for things for their personal use.”-Commissioner Steve Urban

TL: Luzerne County Commissioner Greg Skrepenak and former chief clerk/manager Sam Guesto solicited tickets to sporting events from at least one vendor that does business with the county.

Larry Bickford, of L. Robert Kimball and Associates, said Thursday that his company, which is working on a proposed new county prison design, has purchased tickets for Guesto and/or Skrepenak several times over the last few years...

The county has paid Kimball $2.35 million to date for prison design.

If anyone out there can get me good seats to the Phillies-Red Sox series in June I promise to write nice things about you.

I wrote about this. What a deal that company got. A few million bucks for a few hundred dollars worth of tickets. Beautiful, just beautiful!! Maybe Greg and company are trying to see if they'll get lynched in the streets.

Further proof the people of Luzerne County are just plain stupid and will put up with anything a democrat will do to them.

Pull droogie lever!
