Another jerk off that I can't believe can write, and type. Miracles will never cease. Yes, we (Slatington)do have our share of low life, like ALL small towns.
I would love to meet you face to face to see how much substance YOU have!
I'd like to see your resume.
Sorry, we don't allow you left wing intellectuals on this comment section. Your name indicates that you think you are superior to others. That means you must actually have a huge inferiority complex. I would suggest intense therepy.

I don't know how this turned into a political or Slatington bashing thread. It is a state highway and bridge. It desperately needs to be fixed as with our other 2,000 plus bridges in this country. The council will have nothing to do with this except to vent. It is also state and federal funded. They are the ones who will oversee and try to keep the completion date on time. I am currently working on a bridge project.
Yeah Skittles, my car bottoms out there also. I go the back way. Which will be flooded with cars once the bridge is closed.

Burek's web site says that "Under my watch, this bridge will be completed in 2008." I think we should rename all of Main St. in her honor.
I think they should name the bridge after my special friend Sean Brown.

Slatington Police Chief David Rachman said he is concerned primarily about trucks trying to navigate the borough's narrow curving roads. For that reason, he recommended that trucks follow the PennDOT detour.
(Translation) What he is really concerned about is leaving the police station if there is an accident!

You want to know who I am, you lilly-livered sap-sucker?!
