Castor Stands By Platform

Responds to fellow commissioners’ claims he is too partisan
By MARGARET GIBBONS , Times Herald Staff

COURTHOUSE — If his fellow Montgomery County commissioners thought Commissioner Bruce L. Castor Jr., reduced to the role of a bit player in the current administration, would go silently into the night, they were wrong.

Castor last week pledged to remain faithful to the platform on which he campaigned for commissioner last year and which he claims sufficiently impressed voters to make him the top votegetter in last year’s four-way contest for the three seats on the board of commissioners.

“I tell the public what I am for and they vote for me,” said Castor, a Republican and the county’s former district attorney. “If I’m in, I’m for it; if I’m out, I’m out; that’s the way it works.”

“We are four months into this administration, and you have 44 months to go with me acting the same way until the public tells me otherwise,” Castor told his two fellow commissioners.

I, for one, am glad to see that at least one of the Republicans we elected is still willing to stand on principle and stand by his platform. Castor is no scared turdle, that's for sure.

Your humble blogmeister and Republican
County Commissioner, Bruce L. Castor, Jr.

Taking the show on the road-
COURTHOUSE — The Montgomery County commissioners are taking their show on the road.

The commissioners will hold their June 12 board meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the Upper Dublin municipal building.

Their Sept. 18 meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the recently refurbished Old Mill House in the county’s Central Perkiomen Valley Park in Perkiomen.

The commissioners traditionally hold their bi-weekly meetings in the commissioners boardroom at 9:30 a.m. in the county-owned One Montgomery Plaza high-rise office building in Norristown.

The scheduling of the two out-of-Norristown meetings came about through the persistence of Commissioner Bruce L. Castor Jr., who repeatedly said that these evening meetings will give more citizens an opportunity to see the commissioners at work. (read the rest here)
