I opened the Daily Journal this morning and was shocked atth eeditorial. It is not that don’t agree with it, I agree with it whole-heartedly. It was shocking to see the DJ actually take a stand for once.
Charlie Nutt is gone, and a new editor has taken his place. I think this is a good thing, if today’s editorial is a portent of things to come. The editorial begins…
Once again, it’s promises made, promises broken by a politician.
Douglas Rainear, a longtime Cumberland County freeholder who was elected surrogate in 2008, is putting his personal interests ahead of the public’s and seeks to be paid the full $107,250 salary authorized under state law as a constitutional officer. More disturbingly, with county unemployment in double digits and people still being laid off and furloughed in a jobless recovery, he wants retroactive payment for 2010 of $32,500 in salary.
From there the editorial treads ground that I wish I had done, including a great Photoshopped image of Doug as the pig that he is. This picture is worth the entire price of the Daily Journal for a year! Read the rest of the editorial, it speaks the truth!
