Catasauqua Council...Do they represent those that voted for them, or themselves?

It seems to me that Vince Smith and his puppets, and we that pay attention know who you are, are pushing for the purchase of the property at Pine St. under the guise of reinventing Front St and having all borough services under one roof. As to reinventing Front St.- just ask the gentleman that tried to have a businedd selling used furniture, he told me directly that there is no foot traffic enough to support his business and he withdrew.

As to the "brown" in the mentioned site, why hasn't council released the findings from the study to the voters so to make us awars of what we're getting into. Oh yes, they did mention asbestos...what else is there? We have simply to ask anyone that was employed there and they will give us a straight answer.

This is no time to be doing anything that raises taxes...just look around town to see the growing number of " for sale " signs. Raise taxes, people move, our tax base thins, we then raise taxes. Keep the current puppets on council and Catty will be a ghost town.

Why don't we think of using that elephant of a building, the George Taylor house, instead? It serves no purpose, it costs us money, and it's there?

Council, elections are coming once again. Step up. Do the right thing. Represent your people, not yourselves. Vince-are you listening?

I still want to know why it isn't a conflict of interest for your towing contract with Catty? Are you not supposed to have no monetary benefit to being on council but what you are paid?

Something's not only rotten in Denmark...something stinks closer to home.
