Time for Lehigh County to go it alone with a health department

    Wow Ken, Bigger government?

    What are the key functions of a county health board?

    More government watching over us?

    mmmm, mmmm, mmmm!

    EP,

    No, it is not BIGGER government. It is LOCAL government. All of the functions of a county health department are currently assumed by the state in the absence of a municipal or county department. By law, the DofA should be inspecting diners and restaurants and such. That to me is a core function of government--health and safety--and one better done at the local level. It is crazy that different inspection standards may apply depending upon which side of Cedar Crest you are on. The fact that the state fails today to carry out its duties is no excuse.

    EP,

    I think this is the issue that really underlies the political philosophy in this country. Should government be local or remote. That is the issue here. We are not expanding government; we are decentralizing it.

    Should government be more local?

    Perhaps EP invites you to O-Park for a drink of water some day. :)

    Drink up my friend!
