Out of touch in St. Clair township

July 24, 2013 

Mary Carroll, the newly elected trustee for St. Clair Township, embarrassed herself at a recent township meeting. At the budget meeting, she showed that she does not have a clue as to what is going on by her thousands of stupid questions. Didn't she do her homework?

The voters of St. Clair Township did themselves wrong by voting her in. She voted "no" on both budgets presented, which were lower than the previous four years.

One thing I cannot figure out is over the last four years Carroll was in office as town clerk, but she never asked one question -- not one -- about the budgets.

Now I understand why the Swansea sewer negotiations have taken more than four years.
