Provenzano said that during the executive session, Bernardo, in a written statement, accused the committee of overreaching its jurisdiction, but complied with its requests for information because it is "part of the public record."Bernardo is saying the legislature has no right to ask questions about rewarding her pals with cushy jobs? Well, the voters will have something to say about this in November, when we vote on the referendum to strip the chair of these outrageous powers. Cronyism on the local level is pervasive in this country. It's a disease that starts in our communities, and spreads everywhere -- especially to our state legislature and our Congress. It's time the voters to take a stand against this. If we can put an end to it on the local level, we can eventually stop it on the state and national level.
Enjoy it while it lasts, Terry.
