Clearfield Borough Lawrence Township Consolidation

Clearfield Borough  Lawrence Township Consolidation

                                                                         One big
Vote no to the lies you are being told. This consolidation will not have any positive results for the local peasant. How many times have we been lied to in the past about this proposal will reduce taxes only to have our taxes increased??? How many times????

As peasants of this community we need to stand together and make our voices heard. Consolidation is not the answer to this areas financial problems. How many good paying jobs have our elected officials and other business leaders left go and deter from being created here. Many hundreds if not thousands of good paying jobs. Why? With people like Mr.Walker making decision that are in his best interest and not that of the community. How many people would flee his place of employment with subpar pay for a job with twice the pay and better benefits? The majority most likely, leaving Mr Walker to increase employee pay and benefits. Peeps like him don't want the peasants to have more money. When the peasants start to get more money they become a threat to the peeps who think the world can't make it without them.

 The answer to Clearfield Borough  Lawrence Township Consolidation is to vote NO. You can go to the build our future .com website and read about the lies yourself.

                                                      no no no no no no no no no no

A vote of NO for the Clearfield Borough and Lawrence Township consolidation should be the only way you vote.

When your county commissioners spend their efforts chasing jobs away, us taxpayers need not soak up the shortfall in increased taxes.

“The county commissioners deserve a lot of credit and they can take some pride in the fact that the permit was denied and the appeal was withdrawn,” Kesner said.

This is quote from an article in The Progress May 25, 2016   PA Waste denied.
You can read entire article PA Waste withdraws permit for proposed Boggs Township landfill                          
And they should take lots of credit and be proud of themselves for chasing away desperately needed jobs from this area. Not only the landfill, but hundreds of good paying jobs in the gas industry, a military training facility, canning plant, and loss of jobs in the coal industry. All of these lost jobs alone would generate tax revenues well in excess to keep all municipalities fully funded. No need for consolidation.

How many times are you going to be snookered???? 

Was are property taxes not to cut in half by allowing riverboat gambling? Yes. Were your taxes cut? No.

Was are property taxes to be cut with the recent school referendum act? Yes. Were your taxes cut? No.

In both cases I know I pay even more than I did before these 2 so called tax cuts.
This borough township consolidation will be no different. Promises of tax cuts initially then as above when everyone gets suckered into believing their taxes will be cut - sorry folks we need to raise your taxes because of this or that.

Don't be fooled  for a third time. Vote No to consolidation. Send a message to everyone you want efforts put into bringing jobs into the area not chasing them away.  A military training facility alone that was creativity chased away by building a school would of injected millions and millions into our communities. Now that's something else to be proud of.

A big THANK YOU Reed Brothers tool rental Clearfield

2 kids wish to send you a big joyous thank you. What for you might ask??? A recent inquiry into the rental cost of a mini excavator which seemed  just a bit expensive was reason for not renting said machine and doing the job by hand.

Actually it was not wholly the cost of the machine. The final decision was made when the price to deliver said machine was quoted at (lets see how much this guy will pay) $75.00 to go approx. 3.4 miles. Now the individual who was going to rent said machine is not only a construction engineer who is well knowledged, far beyond that of even the rental store owner, knows it does not cost $75 to transport such a small machine a few miles.

So how might 2 kids wish to thank the Reed Brothers for such a great time they had???

Well, with what was perceived by potential customer as being greedy with the $75 fee, customer decided to save the total of approx. $450 rental + fees, do the job the old fashioned way with pick and shovel, and take 2 grandchildren to Virginia Beach for a 3 day vacation. And the kids LOVED it

Now, if I was a rental store I much rather would of had that money in my pocket and not left in a potential customers pocket to spend somewhere else.

Arrowhead Restaurant Closes another victim of CMA rate increases ??????

Who'd a thought the Arrowhead Restaurant a staple in Clearfield, Pa for years has closed. With a declining customer base over the last few years, could the final nail in the coffin be the recently increased nearly $100 per bill sewer charges collected by the Clearfield Municipal Authority (CMA) ??

Never thought that without much in the way of family sustaining jobs, which there could be if the Clearfield County Commissioners did not spend their time chasing these jobs away, that the recent nearly $100 increase collected by CMA could have such a negative impact.

Not only has this recent nearly $100 per bill increase yet to show the full effect, recent increases over the past few years on Clearfield area residents have been financially draining. With the hundreds of dollars per CMA customer now be collected that leaves hundreds of dollars not being spent at the Arrowhead Restaurant and other establishments in the Clearfield area.

And don't even waste your time contacting the CMA - they only collect the money. You will be told to contact either the borough or township who will then direct you to contact the CMA.
