This excellent poem in from “Frank Lee” yesterday:
Dick was the Mayor Gray of a city he let slip to decay “I frankly beg your pardon I put in lots of rain gardens” And that was all he could really say.
Oh, that is good stuff, Frank! Thank you.Hmmm…. Dick’s response?
“YOU NEED TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY”
LNP Opinion Editor Suzanne Cassidy tweeting at last night’s forum on “Trust, Transparency and the News.”
I don’t file Right to Know requests every day. I try to wait for something I feel is particularly significant and important. One; because it’s not an easy process and two, I don’t want to “anger” public officials with a flurry of nonsense Right to Know requests.
But this weekend I spent several hours gathering all the paperwork and the names involved in my original Right To Know request for the mugshot of George Rosado and fired off my appeal.
It was denied by the District Attorney’s office again – but I was initially confused by their email I received this morning and I contacted the PA Office of Open Records. After a man kindly listened and explained where it stood, he said, “At this point, you need to hire an attorney.”
There will be more later but I guess District Attorney Craig Stedman really, really does not want the public to know what he is doing!
** The lawsuit brought by State Senators Scott Martin and Ryan Aument against Sheriff Mark Reese has been transferred by President Judge Dennis Reinaker to Senior Judge John D. Kuhn of Adams County for “management and disposition.”
* Robert M. Krasne, chairman and publisher of the LNP Media Group, concluded the evening by reminding the audience that democracy “is not a spectator sport.”
From the LNP story by Tom Knapp, “Local media representatives, scholars discuss trust, transparency and ‘fake news’ at Elizabethtown panel,” (click here).
Well, isn’t that an original thought – not! President Obama, Bernie Sanders and countless other have used that line! Not impressive, Mr. Krasne!
SOMEONE ASKED FOR THEIR ETHICS CODE?
