Leigton, Brown, and Two Kanes... creepy and weird

(Note: Anti-Corruption Ticket below)

NEW: From Tony Brooks... Calling Sherman Hills Owners out!! Amen, Tony.  See  HERE

(NOTE: George Brown is on Sherman Hills task force. He is closest to the situation and has made no statments like Tony Brooks has. Please... for the love of justice... vote Tony George).

Tony's statement: I offer a fresh face and independent voice for City Council. Born in the district at the old Wyoming Valley Hospital on Dana Street (sadly demolished) and a long time resident of West River Street, I'm concerned about the future direction of our city. Wilkes-Barre is a great city of neighborhoods with a strong downtown anchored by two great colleges. It seems to me that every time we take a step forward we also take a step backwards. This needs to change. My focus will be on (1) safety and security through tougher enforcement; (2) fiscal responsibility with balanced budgets, holding the line on taxes, expanding the tax base, paying down debt and maintaining a high credit rating; (3) expanding civic participation and neighborhood association development; (4) land use planning and historic preservation; and (5) resurrect the Parks Commission and the Tree Shade Commission; and (6) municipal cooperation and consolidation.

Leigton, Brown, and Two Kanes... creepy and weird:
If there are any limits to corrupt city officials getting behind someone they can manipulate... apparently we haven't reached that threshold.

Look who showed at Beth Gilbert's fundraiser for city council (maybe 8 total?). Anyone (like George Brown) who thinks this college student is qualified to make tough city decisions (budget, pensions, police etc..) is certifiably nuts. This shows the lengths that the corrupt elite will go to in order to find someone malleable enough to support them. 

Please look at the crowd George Brown runs with and ask yourself if you want more corruption.

Caveat: You may think this is a charming story of a Wilkes student with great ambitions. Trust me... it is not. Beth Gilbert and her mom sit in the front row of council meeting like Leighton's little "apple shiners." That is weird in itself... but what is weirder is what happened after a city council meeting. Upon leaving the meeting a female city resident made an innocuous comment (to Beth Gilbert)... something like "It must be nice to be so close to Leighton." 

City administrator McCormick who left mid term, Kathy Kane, and mutiple DUI Jared Kane who thinks he should be a Judge off of daddy's drunken and corrupt record.

The comment was made in the stair well. Upon leaving the building Gilbert and her mom walked into the police station. I told the female "I think I heard them say they are going to press harassment charges." Nobody knew what to believe.

Sure enough they tried to. A WBPD officer came out of the building. He would not file harassment charges but instead told the small crowd of us (who were somewhat stunned), "Don't laugh at them... just let them be. Don't make fun of them." 

At this point... we truly pitied anyone so imbalanced that they felt the need to run into the police station. Weird and creepy.
