Letter to the Editor: 9/29/2015

Today's Letter to the Editor by Richard J. Yost is a crisp reminder to our elected officials that KSL has the money, but we have the votes.

That is part of the old reality. The new reality is the one that overcame Majority Commissioner Jim Wansacz in the May primary election. He wasn’t willing to stand up and be counted on the landfill expansion proposal because he had “been dealing with 8 million other issues.”

Those campaigning for public office in the future need to beware; one operates at a risk if he doesn’t acknowledge this new reality. Yes, the new reality is against a Keystone landfill expansion. And yes, Friends of Lackawanna, you may use that statement as a slogan on your next batch of T-shirts, if you desire.
