Why did they hire 2 part time people? Appears in the past they had 1 parttime Secretary/Treasurer. With the number of hours quoted in the article there doesn't appear a need for 2 different people. Maybe this is their "insurance" that if 1 of them has a difficult time with council (or certain members)there will be 1 remaining in their employ!

When Idiots and Clowns run the town any quality employees will see the writing on the wall and get the hell outta dodge! Seems simple to me.

I wouldn't work at Abbottstown Boro, Gettysburg Boro, York Springs Boro, Mt. Joy Twp, West Manheim Twp, etc. They are all published bad places to work!

Perry and/or Debbie, dear, it was obviously just a slip of the computer keys. All the rest of us knew who they were talking about.

It's obvious that the Shearer's wanted to hire Brogan, and had no intention of looking for anyone else. Brogan was SECRETARY at Berwick before getting fired. Now she is SECRETARY at Abbottstown. Apparently she is unqualified or unable to hold the Sec/TREASURER position. So why hire her?(see first sentence).Since 5 employees have left Abbottstown since Dec 31, 2007, we'll see how long the new hires last.

Debbie and Perry Shearer are a bunch of shady know-it-alls. Secret interviews on a Sunday night? Staff leaving all the time? Trust me, these people know as much about running a town as most of us know about flying the space shuttle.

Mark my words, this isn't the last time Debby will do some unethical stuff and then refuse to answer questions about it. Happens all the time.

People like the Shearers exist only because the average person doesn't take the time to inform themselves on town politics.

You are so right. If only people would attend the meetings and see the volumes of venom just beneath the Shearer's saccarine sweetness. The borough is in big trouble with this dictatorship.

Gee... looks like Brogan is no longer in good graces with queen shearer. My guess would be she will not last out the year at this pace. Even a friend of queen shearer cannot stomach her even being paid to do it.

good call - you only missed by a couple of weeks
we are now taking odds on the next employee hired

really thought brogan would last longer since she was hand picked by her friend shearer and wisked into position under the guise of a fairly advertised system

and as for why they needed 2 people, it is public record that brogan could not hold a treasurer position due to past
