    *   The bottom line – I will give details of my calls tomorrow – the following Right to Know request was emailed to the County this afternoon:
          A copy of all Surety Bonds for/in the name of Lancaster County Treasurer Amber Martin and all Surety Bonds in the name of the Lancaster County Treasurer’s Office for the last two years.


         The Lancaster County Treasurer’s Office is potentially risking millions in liability by not securing surety bonds for the local taxes it collects.
    The opening sentence to the LNP article from July 18, 2018 titled, “Lancaster County treasurer without insurance for millions in tax dollars,” (click here).
         Today, I decided to see if Lancaster County Treasurer Amber Martin had obtained the required bonds to protect the citizens. The answer: after three phone calls I still don’t have an answer. Details to follow.



       On a very serious and horrific note, a two-year-old was killed in Philadelphia last night by five pit bulls in his home.
         This is a brief update to the vicious pit bull attack in Lancaster on two children and their mother on June 19, 2017 (they are now using initials for the children and I will respect that and no longer use their names).
         The lawsuit they filed in the Lancaster Court of Common Pleas just “sat” there for a year. Finally there is action and they have found “deep pockets.” I am not being sarcastic about that – the dog’s owner, Luis Colon, probably does not have insurance since $80,000 was paid for a prior attack by his dog and these children will need medical care for years.
          Judge Leonard G Brown granted the below order on July 19th of this year and the revised lawsuit will be filed in Philadelphia County.

         What a relief! There does, however, seem to be a drought on real news!

    1. Maybe I’m missing something but why is this case being heard in Philadelphia county and not Lancaster county?

    2. That is where the kennel was sold and purchased.

    3. MISSING. Lancaster’ County Treasurer

      Amber Martin ( Age 35 )
      is never at work
      in her office
      What are we Paying this woman to do
      stay on a constant Vacation?
      We know she didn’t care enough about her job that she was
      so called elected to do
      The job was pretty much handed to her
      No Republican ran on the ticket against
      Amber Martin

      No Republican

      Maybe this explains why Amber Martin Lancaster’ County Treasury never Insured /or Bonded our tax dollars
      A year after Amber Martin and her husband State Senator Scott Martin took office
      our property taxes went up because of the
      waste / Favors ? Scott Martin.

      Senator Scott Martin
      worked for a lobbyist before taking his Senate Seat
      Still doing favors for that lobbyist Scott Martin
      You -were -picking up a Pay check from Him
      The Lobbyist

      Amber Martin again never at work. MISSING
      But we know she’s OK
      she constantly is cashing her pay checks

      That we the people pay her. FOR NO WORK

      Amber Martin
      she is not qualified.
      she doesn’t care.
      she doesn’t show up to. work.
      she doesn’t know what she’s doing

      But she DOES DOES cash Her paycheck for no performance

      That is a waste of our tax dollars.

      Missing – Lancaster’ County Treasurer

    4. You’re Funny

      Unless she has a stand in
      I’ve seen Amber about 5 different times today at the county
      And see her everyday.
      Did Becky call Amber? How did that conversation go?

    5. I think people get confused about seeing Amber or not because this glamour shot she chooses to use looks nothing like her in person.

    6. Becky, thank you for explaining the suit and why it’s in Philadelphia. After you wrote that, I went back and reread the document you posted. It’s clear to me now why all of this is being done.

      It also raises a point that might be a mitigating factor in the whole sad event. IF he had his dog in a kennel and keeping it there to be extra safe, and the kennel was defective, I wish that the LNP would do a follow up story. I understand that this dog caused physical injury to another person earlier but since they didn’t order him to euthanize the dog after that, it appears that the dog was being kenneled to avoid a repeat attack. If all of this is true to what the suit entails, it does lessen the outrage to some extent. If the guy was trying to do the right thing.

    8. OntheBeachByNoon

      FYI, Her annual salary is approx. $192,872.

      No wonder she up and quit Manor Township Board of Supervisors in the middle of her term. Pretty cushy job she’s got, there. I do not believe she has a business degree or any other, specific qualifications. (I might be wrong.)
      But, then again, neither does anyone else.

      She has a bachelor’s degree from Hood College In history

      I also heard she had a degree from a online class
      That she paid somebody to do Or take for her

      This woman is full of S—
      She is exactly like her husband Senator Scott Martin
      Lies. manipulates. and. Exaggerates
