Blame the Hamburg Voters? Not So Fast

How quickly we forget.

There's a suggestion that the mess in Hamburg should be blamed on the "voters."

Have we forgotten what led up to the 2008 election? It wasn't the "voters" who sat on the Hamburg Township board of trustees in 2008 and engaged in intra-party fighting over the duties of the supervisor and other matters. It was local Republican leaders who were fighting with each other. Some members of the current board -- trustee Bill Hahn comes to mind -- even promoted the candidacy of former treasurer Patrick Evon before he proved to be such a disaster.

No, this wasn't the voters fault. This train wreck was brought to the people of Hamburg via the local Republican Party leadership. Voters will remember that.
