It is also time for Carl to leave the Franklin County Republican Committee isn't it?

hah - I thought this letter was going to be a joke based on the title.

What a screwed up political landscape we have here...

Franklin County - where EVERYBODY is a republican.

All politics happen within the GOP...

It's time to lift the veil of Socialism that the GOP has wrought in this valley over the past 50 years.

I'll vote for ANYONE with the BALLS to run as ANYTHING BUT a REPUBLICAN!

Keep dreaming Carl. If you keep trying, one of your boys will eventually win something.

I can still see the vision of you in Gettysburg with the broom in your hand when Taylor announced. How did that work out for you again?.....Seriously, I forget.

Franklin County politics reminds me of that scene from "Animal House"

THANK YOU SIR, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER!

These people are funny. Carl "the hair" is the consumate loser. Whoever he supports will certainly lose. Carl has always wanted to be somebody in life but to no avail. You should never have hitched your wagon to the Taylor bunch Carl. You will never win.

Unemployment? Isn't Franklin County one of the ten lowest counties in PA when it comes to unemployment?

Maybe our Commissioners have done something right.

What we don;'t need is a bunch of Tea Party people that will send this county backwards.

We may need new Republicans on office but that office is US Representative to Congress, not the commissioners that have the county is fairly good shape. After all., whose votes were behind the policies that led to our recession?

Just a slight modification,

"... where EVERYBODY thinks everybody else is a republican."

I've experience local business people, while trying to get my business, have initiated conservative republican political rants without any knowledge of my politics. That's just plain foolish from a business POV.(It was hard to restrain my laughter.)

Carl, no offense, but you like to hear yourself talk to much. You don't say much, but you certainly spread alot BS. Quite frankly, from the post I'm reading, everybody else thinks the same. I am a republican and embarassed that I am associated with the same party as you. You would have been better off not writing this LTE. The Pelican is looking for a paycheck.

Carl is somebody that all Franklin County residents should follow.Look at his record every time he didn't get his way he took his ball and went home , and had his wife write a letter to the P.O telling the public how bad he was treated. Carl is a person who always has the answer, but he dosn't knows the question. Carl and Taylor are trying to get their foot in the door, so they can get control and brain wash the residents of Franklin County with the hog wash from the gang of the tea party. Tell him if we want any advise from him we will ask him.

Isn't Carl part of the Republican schism mentioned in Public Opinion editorials?

Or we could elect the 2 democrats as commissioners. Since republicans have been in charge for year and people say that they dont listen, we could get 2 dems, and let them fix things.

Who is "we"? Is there a mouse in your pocket? After Rendell and the thuggish Democrats from the Philadelpia region, and the Obama regime, getting two Democrat commissioners is a fantasy.

Carl Helmen is a person of intergrety and a strong principled conservative with an excellent educational and people-oriented background.

People such as our worthless Republican chairman, Dwight Widemouth should perform his duties as the Republican bilaws dictate be getting out of bed with his 'RHINO' friends such as Bob Thomas, David Keller and small handfull of his Republican coalition buddies.

I am surprised Widemouth has lasted this long as county chairman and after today's radio show with Kelly Spinner bashing Larry Funk, Dan Pellicano along with Citizens for Responsible Government, I can assure you it won't be long until Dwight will be forced to resign or fired.

You have crossed the line as party chairman once again showing your true colors.

You must not know the same Carl Helmen that i know. The one i know is a sunday christian and teaches Sunday school and the rest of the week is is a bare face lier . Unless you have been around him you really don't know him. He would not even understand the word you used as intergrety. He is an excellent people person ,but take my advise don't turn your back on him or you will be sorry. Take my word for it Mr .Helmen could not even carry Dave Keller shoes ,or live up to the standard of a real man.
