This is a response based on the Times Leader's County Council Candidates Make Final Pitches to Voters at Pittston Forum.

Luzerne County government needs to grow and needs more revenue. All the republicans are throwing in taglines about shrinking it and avoiding actual solution-development by a reduce-tax mantra, which is manipulative and lazy.

It's time to kill the quest to kill government, especially in a region where it has already been diminished, de-funded, and harassed away from important business at every step of the way.

The struggles don't dissipate by simply electing any of the democrats listed but at least they are not relying on simple-minded failed platitudes similar to that which have yielded a failed Trump presidency, and, I believe many would agree at a more local level, a Tony George mayorship. Both campaigns relied on this kind of churning of the simple answers and tired people have seen enough of the results.

A larger government focusing on smart community investments is now the better direction.
