Battle Lines Being Drawn

It has been a while since I Griped politics and I am not sure why. I guess it's because things have been quiet here on the home front and people other than politicians have been ticking me off daily. However, that is about to change. The election is right around the corner and things are starting to heat up especially around the courthouse. It appears that the Home Rule Transition Committee has asked Luzerne County Prothonotary Carolee Medico Olenginski to resign her elected position due to the Home Rule taking effect at the beginning of the year. Carolee Lee said, "resignation, it is totally out of the question". She feels that she was elected by the people to serve and that is exactly what she is going to do. She has 2 more years left on her term and she is determined to serve and collect the $36,562 per year salary. By the way, she is a row officer and her position will be eliminated as of January 1st. OK, this makes my brain turn to concrete. Transition member Rick Morelli raised the issue Wednesday, saying the resignations would save money and be the “right thing to do” because the elected posts are eliminated by home rule. Jim Haggerty, also a transition member, said he hopes the four (Medico Olenginski, Register of Wills Dotty Stankovic and Jury Commissioners Bonnie L. Markowski and Frank Semanski) will resign, but the committee has no power to force resignations.

No, you can't force them to resign before January 1st and guess what? These county parasites will hang on until they have bled the county for everything they can get. If they resign now, the county would save around $100,000 from their salaries alone. Of course, they will hang on like a leech on a yak in a Vietnamese rice patty or until they are physically escorted to the door and booted in the ass. By the way, Medico Olenginski is appealing a State Commonwealth Court ruling that rejected her claims that the Prothonotary’s office could not be eliminated under home rule because it’s part of the judicial system. What that tells me is she is going to fight this with her last breath which will most likely cost the taxpayers thousands of dollars in court fees. Go away now Carolee along with the rest of you political cronies. Your time dangling from the teat of the county system is over!
