It's a sad day when our town leaders — I use the term loosely — put their own political and personal agendas ahead of the people they represent. Why would the people of our town want a police chief who cannot obey the rules and laws he is paid to enforce? The few bullies on our council force their will on every one of our citizens. The bullies know who they are and should be ashamed of their actions. Why not do what is morally and politically correct and punish, not reward, the guilty person?
It seems the only council members who care about our town are Dick Reedy and Andrew Peters. The rest of them are so wrapped up in personal agendas that they could care less about the citizens they represent.
This used to be a nice place in which to live. But now with the animals running the zoo, most people would rather be anywhere but Kittanning.
Fourth Ward, Kittanning
TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
