The world according to Skrep

According to Luzerne County Commissioner Greg Skrepenak everyone in the county government is a liar.

He should know. Last week he said this in the TL:

Skrepenak said he will attend Monday night’s meeting of the Luzerne County Democratic Party executive committee with the hope that he and Petrilla, with the help of party leaders, can put their differences behind them and work together for the people of the county.
“We need to support each other as Democrats and as Democrats we should adhere to certain beliefs that all Democrats share,” Skrepenak said. “We have to work for the greater good.”

On Tuesday he accused Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla of perjury.

Skrepenak said she either lied or developed “a serious case of amnesia.” ...Skrepenak also said Pribula didn’t tell the truth when he testified that a $2.3 million transfer to the county pension fund wasn’t in the budget.“He either lied, or he is incompetent.”

Petrilla punched back “I am so sick of his ridiculous remarks,” Petrilla said. “I have been working so hard for 10 months, and he has been whining and whining and whining about being the minority commissioner.”

Judge Ann Lokuta said no to the $16 million new bond but didn't push the county off the cliff because she did approve a $5 million loan.

Every budget that Skrep and his pals have proposed over the last 3 years was a lie.
