Commissioner candidates debate issues

May 4, 2011 by Rebekah Sungala Herald Standard.com

 

All six candidates attempting to secure a nomination in the May 17th primary election participated in the Fayette Chamber of Commerce’s commissioner candidate debate Tuesday, discussing what they can do to make Fayette County a better place to live and work.

Sponsored by the Fayette Civic Forum, the debate gave voters an opportunity to learn more about incumbents Angela Zimmerlink, Vincent A. Vicites and Vincent Zapotosky and challengers Marilyn Cellurale, Dave Lohr and Al Ambrosini.

Zimmerlink, Cellurale and Lohr are battling for two Republican nominations that will allow them to move on to the November general election, while Vicites, Zapotosky and Ambrosini are listed on the Democratic ballot and are also battling for two nominations.

Each of the candidates were given two minutes to answer questions, in addition to allotted time for opening and closing remarks.

In response to a question regarding the regionalization of public services and school districts, Lohr said he is against big government and that regionalization tends to give more power to the government.

Lohr said Fayette County already has a regional police department, which is the sheriff’s office, and that more power needs to be given to the sheriff’s office.

Cellurale said she believes in the regionalization of public services and schools, noting that it would save money and benefit the middle-class taxpayer.

Zimmerlink said the consolidation of public services and schools is not under the purview of a county commissioner but that she does believe in the elimination and consolidation of certain county government offices.

Vicites also said commissioners don’t have the authority to consolidate public services and schools but that he is a large proponent of regionalization.

Zapotosky said he thinks regionalization of public services can work to some degree and that it can be done in a way that allows groups to maintain their own identity while sharing funds and equipment.

He said school consolidations should be put on a referendum so that voters can decide for themselves what is best.

Ambrosini said regionalization is proven to have worked in law enforcement and that it needs to be considered.

Not Enough Said:

We urge candidates for Fayette County commissioner to obtain the report commissioned by the PA state Legislative Budget and Finance Committee and conducted by Standard and Poor.
 
 
 
Note the objectives of the study.
 
Note the Report Highlights.
 
The candidates are from a few different towns in Fayette.  Even though the candidates for commissioner reside in different areas of school districts, because they are running for a county office they should be well versed in the particulars that apply to all school districts per the question of consolidation of schools.
 
Hopefully, they will look at the Standard and Poor Study Volume 2 and identify which county area school districts were among those analyzed to potentially be able to have some cost savings by either a merger, or consolidation with another school district.
 
Candidate Ms. Cellurale should particularly take a look at the entire Standard and Poor Study and be able to address its analysis pertaining to "cost-savings" when they happen, to what extent, and when they don't happen.
