  1. I wonder how many people on here lost sleep over this last night?
  2. It is an AR with a shorter barrel length classifying it as a pistol. Therefore, it needs to be registered as a pistol.
  3. Honestly, call it whatever floats peoples' boats. It would make more sense to call it City of DuBois since everything in the area is City of DuBois, but, in reality, instead of fighting over something like that, save your energy to vote yes or no at the poll.
  4. How would this make a difference? Who cares if they consolidate and call it Township of Gotham or City of Gotham.
  5. Lol! A uneducated voter is a dangerous voter!
  6. Get ready for all of the people who were hating on people who are for it to start acting the same way trying to petition against it. Watch the hypocrites shine!
  7. I don't know Jeffers personally, so I can't comment on his personal life. As far as him being in politics, he is terrible. That is solely my opinion and does not mean it is the right one. The night of the meeting where they wanted to sell their water and sewage to Aqua, a TL resident who was in the middle of a law suit with Aqua tried explaining to them how terrible Aqua is and Jeffers cut him off and would not let him finish. Anyone who went against what he and several other supervisors wanted to do to undercut the City they would cut them off. That meeting backfired on them BIG TIME!
  8. Hahah, I agree with you! It's the new and cool thing to want.
  9. Thank you for posting this Keyser Soze! I feel like a few of us have been preaching about this exact topic! In fact, I know you and I have and are concerned about this happening! I am glad to know that other people are thinking the same logical way. Mr. Jeffers does not care about providing quality services. In fact, he attempted years and years ago to abolish Sandy TWP police department on several occasions to save money. I wonder how the citizens feel about that Mr. Jeffers? He only cares about one thing, that is to keep his hand in the pot of not working together with the City of DuBois. His voting record reflects that along with the last two supervisors who were voted out of office. It looks as if Jeffers' days are limited too!
  10. Last time I checked there isn't a limit on how many times it can be on the ballot. If it passes and people are upset about it, maybe they can petition to have it overturned. Then, if it doesn't get dissolved, the tables will be turned. Those lobbying against it will be the same lobbying for it to be dissolved if it passes, which is the same thing as those lobbying for it and will be lobbying to keep it.
  11. Math was off. 1.1% of undecided voters for majority.
  12. City of DuBois and Sandy Township Consolidation Study It is long but has all of the answers to most questions that are being asked. The projected budget deficits aren't exactly accurate for the City due to the having a lot of millage left to move before they are maxed. Sandy is near max, which is why they are trying to become a home rule charter so they can continue to raise taxes to offset deficits. As you see, City starts overcoming the deficit and Sandy starts going further into the hole due to them being at near max millage. This is my biggest concern, because when does it stop? I know how the government's answer is always to raise taxes. As a Sandy TWP resident, this is concerning to me.
  13. If consolidation happens, are all of the people who are against it going to move because they will fall into the category of unhappy people? Again, it's not just a few people, It is the majority this time that are trying to be silenced and they aren't sitting down and shutting up. 49% of Sandy said they would vote yes, 33% no, and the rest undecided. I don't gamble, but you need 1.6% to vote yes of the undecided. Seems more likely that 1.6% would vote yes out of 18% of the undecided voters. Judging by the past votes for consolidation, it seems that Sandy TWP residents have never supported it before like they currently do. This time it is much different than the past three. Those who are against it are scared; those who are for it are irritated at Sandy officials.
  14. I agree with a new structure of government for a consolidated municipality. As far as jobs, I guess I should have been more specific. It would be nice to have a diverse mix of career oriented employment opportunities, not just a job. You are correct, no one wants to work. They can make more sitting at home feeding off of the government. When that ends, they will be forced back to work.
