What follows precisely illustrates why it is so very important that individuals who are NOT the father, mother, son, wife, husband, brother, sister, cousin, aunt, or uncle of someone else in wEST vIEW Borough Government, or at the West View Water Authority, need to be elected to office.

(In wEST vIEW, there is no discussion, no dissenting view,
just puppet-like rubber stamped approval.)


Borough of West View

(YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE 65 THE PRIOR YEAR)  

incorrect form

The well-kept secret of a senior property Tax rebate in the Borough of wEST vIEW is compounded by the typical lackadaisical approach to governing that is, and has been in existence for many years. The lack of anyone supervising what is being done, is once more quite apparent. The tight-knit group in power is incapable and/or unwilling to police itself!

Contrary to the language of ordinance itself, someone in the Borough office, probably a father, mother, son, wife, husband, brother, sister, cousin, aunt, or uncle of someone else working in wEST vIEW Borough Government, or at the West View Water Authority the has taken it upon themselves to eliminate eligibility the first year a person reaches 65.
