Just how true is Komelasky’s claim in his campaign mailer that Northampton is one of the “Best Suburbs To Raise A Family”?
It’s not true.
According to the “Per Capita Income”, Northampton ranks dead last among the 5 Municipalities in the Council Rock School District.
PER CAPITA INCOME:
UPPER MAKEFIELD $ 56,288
WRIGHTSTOWN $ 42,623
NEWTOWN TOWNSHIP $ 34,335
NEWTOWN BOROUGH $ 33,500
NORTHAMPTON $ 33,028
In terms of spending Komelasky’s a magician. His campaign literature claims he spent $1 million bucks and actually said he “held the line on taxes”. So where did the $Million come from?
Either he had a “Slush Fund” of tax money so he grabbed it or he used a windfall of tax money. Either way or even another way, he spent a million bucks then expects us to fall for the spin that he didn’t.
What did he do to increase per capita income for the people of Northampton? Nothing.
What did he do to increase family income? Nothing.
He claims he “Redeveloped” the Mill Race Inn and the Davis Pontiac site. Oh yeah? Drive by them. If that’s redevelopment the Falls landfill is The Fountainbleu.
30 years of Enough is Enough is more than enough of George Komelasky.Six more years will be insufferable.
