Consulting for dollars

Montgomery County (PA) approves a new contract for a health care consulting firm, guaranteeing them somewhere around $365,000 to tell them what? That they should go with the health care firm they're already using? C'mon, this is getting more and more ridiculous by the day. The leadership in this county is failing us. There's a budget shortfall but we're paying a consultant to give us the lowdown on the health care company the county has been using for years.
I have half a mind to run for county commissioner myself. Will you back me? I mean seriously, half a mind is about all I'd need to do better than what we have now. I guarantee you this kind of stuff would come to a screeching halt.

Round up time

As we head into the weekend let's take a moment to catch up. When you get a minute leave a comment on one of the below questions.

Why is the Norristown Area School District taking 30 days to respond to a Right To Know request for the needed repairs for Roosevelt Field?

Why are we not hearing anything out of the county about the multiple accusations leveled at commissioner's Chairman Jim Matthews?

Why is Norristown taking forever to respond to the disaster that is 770 Sandy St.?

Why is West Norriton fighting putting a stadium in at the high school?

Take your pick, or ask your own question. I'm just trying to keep the conversation lively!
