I am sick and tired of some county employees who stay on their county internet all day face booking & texting & trying to sell things! They may use their own smart phones but, that's still time lost. Mayor Seaton all you have to do is to look at their facebook accounts to know what times they post & also at the Henderson Shopping site as well. If these employees have so much extra time all day, once you find them maybe a loss of a non-efficient worker will help with the budget.

I'm sure he doesn't care, they are all his relatives anyways, aren't they. See this is why the taxes got raised, so his family can get paid to play on the internet all day at our expense. For goodness sakes, wake the f up Chester County!!!

And one more thing, if these "officials" were really smart, like some people think they are, there are programs to prevent employees from being able to facebook and social network on work computers. Most factories don't allow employess to stay on their smartphones all day either, so why should any other work place. The only people who will be pissed about this are the ones who are guilty of doing it all the time. It's the same thing as stealing and I'm not the only one who feels that way, read some employee handbooks in the rules section, you can find out the same thing. Oh yeah, just can't wait to read the hilarious responses from Daphne, the "do no wrong city/county" employee, she gets a little crazy about being accused of this stuff. Ha Ha Ha!

Who are ALL his relatives? Do you even know what you are talking about?? Maybe I'm wrong but I'm trying to think of what relative of his works for him and for the life of me I cant think of anyone?

That's not our point! We understand that many county workers do not engage in this during work time. However, this needs taken care of for nonproductive employees! I'm sure your not one of them, cause your voice can be heard on the radio during your shift. Doesn't it piss you off that you do your job while others stay online & make more $$$$$$ then you?

I do not work for the county or city. I simply just ask a question. What family member of Mr. Seaton's works for him? I'm sure there are employees that abuse the cell phone/social media policy. But that is not what I was asking....

You have idiots on here that don't have a clue of what they are talking about. Either prove it or shut up. They are trying to keep stuff stirred up.

Wondering and Local, have you completely missed the whole point of this? It's not right for us taxpayers to being paying county/city employees a salary to facebook, sell their personal items and surf the internet while they are at work whether it be from their own personal smartphone or a county/city owned computer unless they do it on their own time such as break or lunch. If you are not guilty then you have no worries, correct? As far as the relative thing, well that has no place in this conversation anyways. It is unfair that some employees are allowed to do this, when actually this is a form of stealing, whether anyone wants to admit it or not. Many workplaces would have already terminated those employees. And I do agree with lalalala, there are programs that can easily be installed in the system that block all social networking. Too many of these employees treat their jobs as a social outing, not as a job. It has happened so long that if they actually had to obey real rules, there is no telling how many would quit. This county needs to be run as a business and have rules for employees to follow. It is absolutely unfair to the employees who actually do their jobs effectively and unfair to us the taxpayers who are paying those salaries.

Like I said prove it or leave it alone.

I didnt miss anything! Each county official is responsible for their own employees actions on the job. If you have proof of what you accuse then take it to the elected official that these people work under. You profit nothing from putting it on this website. So much of what is posted on here is nothing but lies. So I have to agree with local... Prove it or leave it alone...

Well, that really says alot for the county officials who allow this, it is easily proved, just check their posts on facebook and the Henderson shoppers page. Wow such frustration from you two, do I detect guilt? You are so funny, and ridiculous!!! By the way, for your information, this is already being monitored. There are records of when and who posts, what sites they are visiting and how much work time is actually wasted. The whole thing was brought about when the mayor started his tax raising venture, so you might want to watch what you do on the clock from now on. So there already is proof, and if you must know the employees who take the extra long lunches and get paid for that time are being closely monitored also. The whole system is being watched very closely, that's what happens when the state starts investigating, they don't go around and tell everyone to be good little boys and girls before they start obtaining records and monitoring each office. The proof is already there, haven't you noticed that you are being watched lately? There are a few people in this county who know the right way to go about ending all this bs that is going on daily, and you will find out the whole story very soon. So if you are not one of those stealing from the tax payers, you have nothing to worry about.

Exactly! I agree with you! So Mayor Seaton you need to get a grip on this ASAP. Make surprise visits to each office & see what they are doing. Get the program to manage non-job related surfing. When I've paid fines for my grandson @ the clerks office I know this was going on. It made me very angry & the tax Payers deserve honest, hard working employees.

Like I said I do not work there! If there is corruption in the system I hope it is brought to light and dealt with legally. I am a tax payer therefore it is my money going to waste!

Well it sure does seem like you are due to you being so defensive! Actually, i read very well & usually don't waste my time on this website. I've said how my family feels about the situation as a tax payer. You have the right to express your feelings as well.

I wasn't defending employees stealing time from the county. If you'll read my original post you will see I simply ask "who were Mr Seatons relatives that worked for him"? If that makes me defensive then ....whatever!
