Care to show some facts and figures (you know, PROOF).

Kind of funny how all the people targeted for removal from office are Democrats.

Is Clearfied Republican HQ taking a page out of the Dick Cheney playbook?

<The county pension fund, under's Claudia Read's supervision, has underperformed the market overall. Employees are going to have increase their contribution rate. Time for this woman to go.>

That's nice, kinda like me losing 40 grand in less than a half day turning my 401k into a 301k.

We all went through it. Quit whining and grow up.

Seems you are the one who lacks comprehension.

The market losses are based on averages. If I am heavy in xyz and it jumps 40 bucks a share, it doesn't help the guy in Walker FinServ ifit tanksto 30cents a share.

On ave though you would see a net gain of 20.15

Rex and Claudia go hand-in-hand. Rex is at her office daily and is probably still running the show. A new broom always sweeps clean. Let's get rid of the corruption in Clearfield County, especially in the Court House politics.

Yes, market losses are based on averages, so if your fund performs worse than the "average" it is generally considered you are underperforming the market.
The county pension fund is underperforming the market. Claudia Read oversees the fund. It's time for Claudia to be voted out of office. Maybe it's time for a business class, instead of someone that took a two week training class, to run this office.
Boy that makes a lot of sense. You don't work for AIG do you?

Or are you one of Walker Financial Services clients?

Do tell, who in your expert opinion would be the one to fill Ms Reads shoes?

It's kind of sad that people posting here have no idea how county governments in Pennsylvania are MANDATED by the PA County Code on how the county employees pension fund is run. News for you - the county controller doesn't have total control over the pension fund - the county retirement board does. Also worth noting - Walker Financial Services did have a portion of the county pension fund at one time but not any longer.

<Walker Financial Services did have a portion of the county pension fund at one time but not any longer. >

Thank you!!!! That was my point.

The Controller is not the total control over the pension fund.

Again, the "class Warfare thing rears its ugly head, but it is the class that is attacking Bud George and conveniently lumping Geoge with Shaw.

The gripes I am hearing on this board under the guise of "end corruption now are bu!!&hit and the Glenn Beck crowd supporting this crap need to get a life.

Now , ask why WFS isn't part of the pension fund anymore?

<Just a quick question, why did you mention the name Stacy Parks? Why do you think this is who I was referring to? Hmmmmm....makes one wonder how you knew that. You just really made a big fool of yourself with that post, pal. >

Because she was mentioned as a woman Bill Shaw was supposed to have thrown a computer at you phucking clown.

The only fool on this forum is the one who runs a smear campaign against a with no proof other than hearsay from people with an ax to grind.

You talk about Shaw being abusive?

Are you going to tell me that nothing .....absolutely NOTHING happened between Walker and Ms Ferry?

It sounds tome like Derek has anger issues too, so lets' paint them with the same brush

Wow, there's a vast left wing conspiracy going on:

"Walker Financial was eliminated as a county investor when Read and McCracken replaced republicans. An independent audit ranked Walker Financial 2nd out of 6 providers in terms of performance. Yet, they were eliminated.....makes you wonder who is pulling Claudia Read's strings.....could it be....I don't know....Camille George? You've got to attend Bud George Day for the answer."

It would help if you would stop drinking the kool aid. If you knew what you were talking about instead of posting lies and misstatements:

Case in point: You say "Walker Financial was eliminated as a county investor when Read and McCracken replaced republicans."

FACT: Read and McCracken replaced Sughrue and Lunsford who were (drum roll please) DEMOCRATS!

More Bull$hit: "An independent audit ranked Walker Financial 2nd out of 6 providers in terms of performance."

FACT: Clearfield County NEVER had 6 investors - only 5. When the audit was done several years ago, the 3 WORST performing were removed. If you want an additional fact, one of the investors removed was a Democrat from Janesville.

Unlike most of the made up inuendo posted here, if you want to confirm any of the above facts - utilize the Open Records Law, go to the courthouse and ask to see the minutes of the retirement board.

<Walker Financial was eliminated as a county investor >

Walker an investor?

I thought the County would be the investor.

Well ,now that the Republicunts are in the majority, why isn't the Walker firm back in?

Oh by the way, do you know the whole story about an old man "strangling " a fairly strong younger guy in his office?

If I were John Gallagher, I would hide in a box!!!!!

What a freaking wuss!!!!!

Letting himself be accosted by a guy almost twice his age?

That has "set up" written all over it.

When you Republican'ts tell a story, do it in detail, this isn't Faux News (or is it)?

Bravo!!!! reading the anti Bud and Bill and Claudia and Chip and whoever else is on their hit list is a hoot.

This reminds me of John Boehnner, Eric CanTor and the rest of the party of NO holding up that phony budget two weeks ago and coming back for another ass woooping later on with a real disaster of a budget proposal.

You just can't make this shyatt up!!! I think the whole thing we see happening nowadays is a sense od desperation on the part of these neoconic jerks and they recruit a pack of ax grinders to do their dirty work.

I'm having a ball reading the poststhen watching them get shot to He!!

Stuff like this will keep the Dems in power for generations to come.

<I don't think it matters what age you are, no one deserves to be strangled by their elected official. Hello, socialism. Thanks Bud George. >

When you barge into an elected officials office and lunge at a guy, expect a reaction!!!!

I'd love to seen what would have happened had someone done that to Jake Corman at his office.

Socialism? The only socialism practiced in theis Country is corporate socialism.

The punka$$ "new " CON servatives would not make a pimple on a true conservatives a$$.

The de regulation Ronnie Reagone jerks started the economic blowdown and when you bring up FannieMae and Freddie Mac, do not forget all the greed and relaxing of the basic rules of investing and banking that got trashed by Dubya and his merry band of Fu##ups.

Socialism has been here as long as you are a greedy corporate thief
