Was Steve Urban too much of chicken to debate??? YEP!!!

Pizza Pete said...

Did you really expect Urban to stand up for a debate?

Pizza Pete said...

I put out a do not disturb sign in the pizza shop and watch the debate. Tried to keep an open mind and the way I saw it, Yudichak was well prepared, made a great speech about negative campaigning and how we deserve better and then went on a negative tirade against Mayor Tom. I had a pizza ready to deliver to his campaign HQ but he blew it, no pizza for Yuddi. I thought Mayor Tom held his cool very well and when he leveled Yuddi with his closing statement, I had to smile. Yuddi deserved that and more. Mayor Tom buried Yuddi with his closing remarks and if people were listening, that closing took the gold ..... Mayor Tom, this pizza's for you!

I am agree - Urban is way too scared to debate anybody!!

Mark said...

Pepperoni Pete,

That closing statement of Tom's was utterly devastating. Had me laughing out loud, it did.

I called and asked him for the text, but he said he delivered that from bullet points.

Damn.

Either way...Yudichak is very soon going to make for a fine former legislator.

If John and Daddy John did not scrw over Kanjo, Yuddi could have had a job waiting at the Equipment Center. With 12 years in Harrisburg, Yuddi shold have learned to never burn bridges in front of you. Kanjo won't be of much help and nobody expected John's ego to get so big that being a Rep wasn't good enough. I know people that would die for that job. Oh well, such is life!

i have to wonder though why Tom didnt call John out when Yuddi said he voted NO for the pay raise.

he did vote NO but HE TOOK THE MONEY anyhow...... i find that the most insulting part of Yuddi.....

Hey I read your comments about Steve Urban. He is a great guy, and the best Commissioner we ever had. Leighton cannot hold a candle to Urban. Yudichak, he remind me of a common theif. He took all that per diem money for year while he served in the House of Representatives, now he want to move to the Senate where he can steal more money from the working class. John is no friend of the working family. He is a taker!

Shame on Tom. Shame on Yudichiak. You both lost my vote this evening. I'm voting for Steve Urban in November.

I want to thank Tom Leignton for informing me that John Yudichak took all that per diem money while he was in the House of Representative. John is it true that you took over $115,000.00 in per diem while you served in the House of Representatives and never turned in a receipt? Greed! Where are your receipts. Did you ever hear of the word ethics? John you lack ethics.

Ch. 44 debate would have included Urban if he wanted to attend but let the gods forbid that Urban ever stand up and be counted, especially if there is no issue on the table. All he wants to do is fire people, take back benefits. Where was his fiscal concern a few years ago when he gave his court house secretary a huge raise? He wants to fire the peons but his gal Friday is special. Urban never has a point till somebody else makes it. He is always Johnny on the spot after a wrong is made known. He is never the guy to find the problem he is too busy running down the street looking for a bandwagon to jump on.

But he looks great with that Hitler mustach! Steve - don't ask;don't tell...
Vote Urban for Lt. Governor; state senate; emperor of Haiti; fairy princess; heaven knows, all he does is run to benefit himself!!!

Pleas see the blog PITTSTON POLITICS this week. Steve Urban the scum sucking politician is finally revealed!

Anonymous said...

Why would Urban show up? He is unopposed in the primary. Scavo didn't fit in the other night. Scavo and Urban are not running against anyone in May so what is the point in having them in a debate?

Mark said...

Uh...accountability, accessibility and transparency?

Silly little sh*t such as that?

SORRY, FOLKS, STEVE URBAN WAS TOO BUSY ON FRIDAY TO ATTEND - HE WAS OUT DOING THE CHICKEN DANCE!!!

MARK - great statement - all Steve Urban is, is hot air! Biggest phoney ever to hit this sad county

You anonymous writers sure do have a lot of misinformation posted on this blog. The League of Women Voters scheduled a debate on Thursday evening at Kings College for the two Democrat candidates. Steve Urban the Republican was not invited because he is running unopposed in the May 18th Primary Election. Maybe you anonomyous writers are not confused. Or, maybe you are just plain dumb! What is it anonymous, confused or dumb? Who are you working for Yuddi of Leighton?

I called the League of Women Voters - they said Urban was too chicken to show up!

Hey Gort,
Why don't you call someone from the league of women's voters and put this shit to rest, either way, once and for all.

Gort said...

On the WVIA debate Norton reports that Republican Steve Urban was invited to participate, but was unable to do so due to a "scheduling conflict."

I don't know about the LWV as nobody is answering the phone today.

Gort - many thanks for confirming that Steve Urban is completely useless and too scared to debate!

I have to admit that I have always looked at Steve Urban and wondered why a guy would want to look like Adolph Hitler? SIf Urban is too stupid to see it, somebody in his family should be abel to tell him OR, maybe Steve has the lok he wants! If it is Hitler he wants then it's Hitler ha has.
