Mail Call - June 1

May 31, 2012

“If Mr. Greg Murray’s analysis (see Sunday, May 20 article in The Herald-Mail) of the cost of recycling versus benefit, is anywhere near accurate, I would not only incur a cost to recycle, but as a taxpayer, I would also pay even more for the net $90 million of landfill costs.”
— Washington County

“It was mind-boggling to read Mr. Metzner state most of his emails were in favor of the stadium. Doesn’t he read the paper, for the citizens’ view? Again, because of costs, noise, parking and location. Mr. Metzner and the mayor were in office for years, and downtown was ignored. Thirty million dollars won’t fix it now. And less than 600 in attendance? How can they afford it?”
— Hagerstown

“The Washington County government staff has won the battle, because the county commissioners don’t have the guts to tell them no, we are not borrowing money this year.”
— Maugansville

“In regards to the new stadium that they’re talking about putting in in downtown, I really think this should be put up to a vote. It just seems like it’s kind of been — it seems like it’s already been decided that it’s gonna be in downtown. What was wrong with where the hospital was, or across the street from the old stadium? It seems like that just kind of got brushed away. I really think that this is an issue that should be on the ballot, because it seems like a lot of people are upset about it.”
— Hagerstown

“I have a question. I’m a little confused. Is it legal or illegal to be driving a car using the cellphone?”
— Williamsport

“As I sit here in Chambersburg, Pa., I cannot express strongly enough my sympathy for the citizens of Hagerstown. It is obvious that the vast majority of Hagerstown residents do not want a new stadium built, yet the city council just totally ignores this majority, and rushes ahead. In the old days of this country, we were a clear democracy, where the majority ruled. Not today.”
— Chambersburg, Pa.

“I’m calling in reference to everybody that seems to be suddenly jumping on the Mitt Romney bandwagon. Yes, he was a one-term governor in Massachusetts, and if you go and look at his record, it wasn’t a very good term that he had. He would not have won the second term if he would have ran for it. And we want this man to be our president? I don’t think so. The country’s improving. ... We’re still digging out of the eight years that Bush and Cheney put us into. Why would we want to put another GOP president back in the Oval Office? ... Obama’s got my support in 2012.”
— Hagerstown
