Blah Blah Blah
In today’s print edition of The Fishwrap, we find another ho-hum the-sky-is-falling advertisement from the wanna-be responsible Pottstown citizen, Thomas Hylton.
We find it very amusing that Hylton is crying the blues about all of this debt that we cannot afford when only a year ago he was pushing for a proposal to spend some $15+ million dollars on selective maintenance to his favorite school buildings.
Say it out loud with us folks…H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E
Sure. It’s okay for Tom Hylton to spend money to fix up old buildings…but now we’re in a financial meltdown! Everyone run for the hills!
So what does Tom Hylton propose the school district do? Oh that’s right – let’s just keep the status quo….keep those five 40+ year old elementary school buildings that we cannot afford…keep doing what got us into this financial mess. Of course. That makes so much sense doesn’t it Tom? You’re such a genius.
Perhaps if Tom Hylton didn’t fight against the centers concept so long ago the school district wouldn’t have to deal with the issue of all of these excess school buildings we cannot afford.
Why is Pottstown up to its neck in debt? Because of zealots like Tom Hylton, who are more concerned with keeping school buildings we cannot afford rather than focusing on improving our children’s education.
Speaking of Tom Hylton and money…don’t forget folks that TONIGHT is Pottstown Borough Council’s monthly meeting. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. at Borough Hall. Please get there early to sign up to speak in support of Councilman Jody Rhoads’ quest to obtain a full audit of our taxpayer money that was donated to Tom Hylton’s Trees, Inc. “non-profit” over the period of 2003-2007.
We’ll see you there!
