Via Bernie O’Hare, a very good idea from Northampton County Council candidate Jerry Seyfried:
He believes the County must keep its commitment to Gracedale, its nursing home. Seyfried, along with former Council members Ron Heckman and Rich Grucela, lobbied against its privatization, both with Council and with Executive John Stoffa.
He wants to turn the criminal division over to the courts instead of keeping it under the wings of the County Administration. The County is owed $60 million in fines and costs, and that will be a lot easier to collect of a judge can issue a bench warrant as opposed to a criminal clerk using a collections agency.
Jerry also believes it’s time for the County to return to long-range planning, something that has been neglected.
