The state budget for public school districts and education, state police and public safety, always provide a public stage
for state Representative Timothy Mahoney (Fayette D-51st seeking a filth term). Taking office in 2006, Rep. Mahoney
teamed up with Fay-Penn Economic Development Council early on to promote the new STEM Center FayPenn sought for Fayette County.
The $30 million Center has yet to become a brick and mortar building (on land FayPenn owns), it's
still on the watch-list these many years later, as are other such causes Rep. Mahoney takes up to have a platform of
issues for his future planning.
Rep. Mahoney has been caught contradicting himself in
published news accounts and letters-to-the-editor, in sessions he has had with the Herald-Standard Newspaper Editorial Board,
in meetings he has held, some of which are public, others which are not public, but are reported upon, forums he holds, during
radio interviews, and at a most notable meeting of the Fayette County election board.
so many contradictions? The answer remains evermore a puzzle.
Even when he promotes more funding
of Fayette County school districts in print in a news release posted on his state-funded website, and sends an email
blast to those who remain on his email list, he neglects to notice 55% funding he complains is too little is greater
than the 32% average funding for school districts in the state.
