I think it's great how all you people spend your weekends talking about and bashing panther valley politics. It really honestly means you have no lives at all. Prob dont leave your houses and sit around playing call of duty or madden. Your a bunch of losers.

No he works night shift so he heads to work right after the meetings. Learn the facts before you even think to speak.

Not only is the kid tied to the O'Gurek political camp HE IS AN O'GUREK. His mother is Bill Sr.'s sister ! So we have an APPOINTED commissioner, an APPOINTED Summit HIll council member, and now this appointment. Wake up people and find out about the candidates you are voting for.
This just goes to show you that the O'Gurek name only carries weight in the PV area and in limited political circles where appointments are sought out. Any run by one of them outside the PV area will be unsuccessful. And don't tell me I'm wrong just because little billy won a ride to the DNC. Yes he did HOWEVER that race went well beyond carbon county where no body knew his name. Shear luck.

First off- Billy is on town council = unpaid
Brian on school board = unpaid.

These guys are stepping up to help out our community. What is everyone else doing for free?

Not impressed. They are just trying to build a new political dynasty. The McCall dynasty is done. Over. They need new and young blood to build up what they hope will eventually be a new strangle hold on politics in Carbon County and possibly make a run one day for county or even state office. How nice it will look on their press releases that they served with no pay. They are stepping up alright. To help themselves in the future.

Their time is over. There will be fresh new faces emerging without name recognition or connections and that is exactly what the voters want.People who are qualified and willing to work hard for the people instead of just having the keys to the kingdom being handed to them by previous relatives!

Little reminder: We "clowns" didn't like the job O'Gurek was doing/did as commish. They fired his ass - but lookie who is the catbird's seat. Did you miss he was the last choice on the ballot, or is your memory as short as you probably are?
I know I cannot do the job - and I'm pretty well educated and experienced. We don't need any more basically undereducated and/or inexperienced "clowns" running (or is it ruining?) government. Name recognition, a large bar bill, or a sense of entitlement will no longer do. Bring on the pros!
Haha. We might have 3 or 4 people in elected office in the entire county that would be considered a "pro" with budgets & money. Most of them wouldn't even consider running for higher office. Its less pay and more headaches than what any of them do.
