All those who think this was a "kindness" better check on the bills like the one going through West Virginia legislature that would allow doctors to unilaterally kill you by withholding treatment they decide is useless and expensive for the state and the insurance companies. The culture of death is out to get you.
Bruchey answers a question about city/ county ties
To the editor:
(Editor's note: Because former Hagerstown Mayor Robert Bruchey did not win the city primary, The Herald-Mail is not asking him candidate questions.
However, he is being allowed to answer those questions on this page, as long as he limits his answers, as other canddiates do, to approximately 150 words.)
Q. Define the current working relationship between city and county governments and what you would do to improve that relationship.
A. The inability of this administration to meet and iron out differences with the county is only one reason for new leadership in the mayor's office.
One-on-one lunches with Commissioners President Greg Snook have produced nothing significant.
The 2-plus-2 meetings have produced little progress in uniting the two governments on a common goal.
Richard Trump and the Trump machine's reply in the paper of a "combined vision" is just as he said, priceless.
Only in this instance priceless means not worth it at any price. His response once again sounds like an AMWAY commercial - political rhetoric with no direction or vision.
I would mandate bi-monthly meetings be held with both full bodies. Such was the case during my administration. We didn't always agree but we met and discussed important issues.
That is how the very first transfer of sewer flow came about. This transfer gave the county revenue and increased the city's capacity, a win-win for both.
