"I would rather not say because it is a religious organization,” -Luzerne County Commissioner candidate Christine Katsock
That was her answer when she was asked who her new employer is. What religious organization could it be, Scientology? The Council on American-Islamic Relations ? I'm not sure but I think candidates are required to disclose their sources of income. Even if their not it's a stupid answer to a legitimate question.
The rest of the CV article gives a rundown of all the Republican candidates for commissioner. All of them said they won't to stop or delay yet again the county’s first reassessment of property values since 1965. Incumbent Steve Urban has teamed up with Bill James but they disagree on the proposed inflatable dam. Katsock is still feuding with Urban and Urban is knocking David Shipula for contributing to Democratic Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton's reelection. He also questions Bill Jones independence because his brother and daughter got county jobs because of his alleged cozy relationship with Greg Skrepenak. Jones and Shipila want to build a new county prison while Urban and Jones want to renovate the old juvenile detention facility. They are all leery of the proposed cargo airport near Hazleton and want to take another look at the sweetheart deal for the juvenile detention facility in Pittston Township.
