Skrep backs Home Rule

Luzerne County Minority Commissioner Greg Skrepenak said he will join Steve Urban to put Home Rule on the May primary ballot without the need for a petition drive. Commissioner Chairwoman Maryanne Petrilla opposes this approach and asked for time to clean up the county mess. We've heard that before. The new study commission would not be bound by the plan that was shot down in 2003 although I think it's a pretty good blueprint. While the question will appear on the ballot people who want to be on the study commission still have to gather signatures between Feb. 17 -March 10 and the top 11 vote getter's will write the new charter. Bible Buck is already running for one of the seats.
