Your tax dollars at work

A gem from a recent column by Margaret Gibbons, who covers Montgomery County government for The Doylestown Intelligencer:
I think the county courthouse and government were open for business on Jan. 6 but I could be wrong.

I was flipping through the county Democratic newsletter and checked out the photos taken during the Jan. 6 inauguration of Harrisburg lawmakers.

What to my wondering eyes should appear but a slew of county Democratic officials including Commissioner Joseph M. Hoeffel III, Controller Diane Morgan, Register of Wills D. Bruce Hanes, Prothonotary Mark Levy, First Deputy Prothonotary Bonnie O'Kane, Second Deputy Prothonotary Milly Mitchell and, of course, Hoeffel bud James W. Maza, the county's $90,000-a-year part-time deputy chief operating officer.

How did the county ever survive such a brain-drain that day?
Read the full column, in which Gibbons also takes shots at Montgomery County Republicans, at the newspaper's Web site.
