Letter to the Editor
Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, 9:11 p.m.

It's amazing that with a Republican governor, state Rep. Tim Krieger, R-Delmont, and state Sen. Kim Ward, R-Hempfield, were “blindsided” and had no clue that SCI-Greensburg was going to be shut down. Am I supposed to believe that malarkey?

Why are we electing them if they are so misinformed and not up to date on something so important happening that will be a large job loss in our area? They sure got together quickly on what to tell the media — “We had no idea.”

Maybe all that horse dung at the farm show in Harrisburg kept them from doing their jobs in their offices. Thanks to both for people losing their jobs and then pretending they had no clue.
