Poor residents of Warren Township have little representation. Yet Chambersburg residents have the most votes as any.

The current method would be like if there were just the House without the Senate. California & Texas & New York could reign terror on Alaska, Rhode Island & Delaware.

Why note assign a vote based on an entity and then a vote based on population. Sort of a combination of how the Congress works.

What we don't need on the board is more railroading that occurred in the meetings to pick (surprise!) Chambersburg Wage Tax. The obvious results from the first meeting.

One man, one vote is fine for this organization. As a county collection agency now, everyone should be concerned with every citizen in the county, not just for your own jurisdiction. The petty David vs. Goliath antics must stop. Chambersburg relishes the Goliath role and it's just wrong.

Mr. Barton, you have sold out your conservative values to the established power. We put you on that school board to fight the corruption and you have caved. I am wholeheartedly disappointed with you and the TEA Party will remember this.

You have to love this idea. First, Chambersburg uses its weighted voting on the TCC to select the highest bidder to collect taxes.

Now it wants to have the most votes on the board to manage the way it is run!

You have to admire Chambersburg. It recognizes that the rest of the county doesn't trust it, yet it really doesn't care so long as it benefits themselves.

Hasn't the opposition low bidder had several lawsuits filed against it ??

Gee, I don't know. Has it? How many people have not been satisfied by CAWTO for a long time? Anyone can file a lawsuit against anyone. Haven't several been filed against CAWTO?

Yes, and they also played "devil" music and worshipped in cemetaries during the full moon.

You have to love the scare tactics. Here in the grownup's world Sam, we like to see those things referred to as "facts." You know, the ones that show the end result of the lawsuit?

I love the folks who can't wait to justify the fleecing of our local taxpayers by choosing the highest bidders.
Oh my

Dave: You're missing the point. The Chambersburg School District and its municipalities want to control the county and chose whoever, whatever, whenever they please.

One would have thought that "simple math" would have been utilized to choose the lowest bidder.
