Vote for Gort?

Revenge!

My friend David included me in his 13 questions segment this month. I suggested that we write him in for Jury Commssioner so he returns the favor.


8. YOU HAD A FEW PEOPLE WRITING YOUR NAME IN FOR JURY COMMISSIONER, WHAT OFFICE WOULD YOU WRITE IN GORT 42’s NAME IN FOR?


GORT WOULD MAKE AN EXCELLENT COUNTY TREASURER IF MIKE MORREALE EVER RETIRES. AND IF NOT THAT, I’D TRY TO GET GORT AS COMMISSIONER OF THE NCAA FOOTBALL SO THAT HE COULD ADD SOME COMMON SENSE TO THIS BCS NONSENSE.

First of all I think that the Government Study Commission will eliminate Treasurer as an elected position and hopefully the new charter will be ratified. I don't want that job or Commissioner of the NCAA. The comish of the NCAA is an administrator that is in charge of rule enforcement but doesn't set policy like the commissioners of the NFL or MLB. The real powers in college football are the University Presidents. Their schools are raking millions under the present system so they are not inclined to change it. I would love to see a playoff system but it will not happen for a while.

And just to tie it together Morrreale said in his last campaign that he would retire after Joe Paterno did.

If you want to vote for me go to this place.

i just dont understand the role of the treasurer for either state or county government. In most civic orginizations its one of the positions that actually require work, but n County and state government a legislative process decides how to spent money and both have a watchdog (auditor General and Controller) but i guess if you are going to elect one person to be the clerk of criminal court and a differet person to be the clerk of civil court, a person to record deeds and register wills, and examine dead bodies you may as well elect someone to sign checks(do they even do that? i figure grants come in the form of big checks signed by the commisoners)

Hopefully after home rule we get a system with 3 elected commissioners, and elected DA, and an elected controller. If the they want to go to a council/district system I hope they maintain atleast 3 atlarge seats with minority representation.

If they go to a council/district form of government it would make perfect sense to make Walter Griffith King of the County! By the way, Clerk of Ciminal Court nd a Clerk for Civil Court? What county are they in?

I wanted to comment on the Study Commission replacing Walter Griffith when he does the right thing and steps down. The only person with government experience and who understands government is Haggerty and all they do is throw stones at him. I'm wondering is they will replace Griffith with a quality person who understands how government operates or will they seek out another do gooder who hasn't a clue? It really doesn't matter to me because in one year, one short year, I will be retired and heading for Florida. I would rather live with the weak who couldn't punch a complete hole in the voting card because it would be easier to live with hanging chads than the county Neanderthals who believe 11 is easier to control than 3.

Jim Haggerty is the problem not the solution. The stones are thrown his way because he is a "control Freak" and will not allow people to ask questions of the commission that may expose him for the reasons explained above, and the other people on the commission are puppets and Haggerty is the one pulling the strings. I am sure when Walter Griffith resigns they will place Jeff Niemich in his place because Jeff can be controlled like the other 10 people on the commission and Walter was the only one that stood up to Haggerty and thats why the whole commission cant wait for Walter to resign. Have a good time in Florida and I hope you get an eye examine there so you can really see people for what they are and not for what you think they are.

Gort love your optimism but the Government Sutdy Commission isn't going to do a thang.

Get it straight, Walter didn't stand up to anybody, he leaped up to catch a headline and that's all. Walter has already worn out his welcome as far as I'm concerned and he hasn't evern taken office. Wait till Walter and his solicitor (who he hasn't named yet) Sam Stretton take office and spend all of thier time throwing snowballs. No progress, just a pile of shit ... er .... I mean snow.

10:29, I love your insight. And by the way, I agree that Walter is bullshitting the public. He knows right now that Stretton is his solicitor so who is he kidding? The Mohegan Sun is taking bets with Stretton the 100 to 1 favorite.
