How many borough employees does it take to change a light bulb. Well evidently too many in Tamaqua as it is beyond the scope of the borough to change light bulbs and must hire another firm to do it for them. And of course we hear the old, they assume a conservative increase in electric rates will occur, and just who gave them that bit of bewildering advice, a propaganda relations manager from PPL, sure the rates will only go up by 3 percent, are these people even remotely aware of reality? perhaps the uppers in Tamaqua should check into outsourcing their butt wiping duties also, just think over a 20 year period it just might be possible to save one or 2 sheets of toilet paper per day if an outside company was hired to replace the hands that now wipe clean the boroughs behinds.

And just how do you know it's propaganda? Are you a genius? Doubt it.
