Where is Tony George's head? Can anyone honestly say that this man gives any confidence or provides the necessary skills to lead a city? As my dad once said, "He is asleep at the wheel."
What is most amazing about the letter below in not that Tony George wrote and signed it... but that he still stands behind it... with Civiarella in jail... with a "Kids for Cash" book and movie made... with the scandal standing as an international embarrassment to our area.
This is what he said verbatim at the debate (10/21/15 against Frank Sorick for W-B Mayor... like Tony's brain - it does not flow real well). "I did support Mark Civiarella for what he did for Wilkes-Barre Career and Technical Center (what about the rest of the county?). When kids came to him he said that if you violate what he says... you are guilty in front of him and that's exactly what he did. I have no problems with him... and the school and made it a safe environment for the other kids in the school."
Further in debate Tony George says there is no discrimination problems in the city. None. Anybody see the make-up of all city employees? Do you think jobs are distributed by family or race/ethnicity? Once again, this speaks to his judgment and readiness.
