In Pennsylvania we are starting to see a number of people who are having their properties reassessed and petitioning to have their property valuation lowered.    This means a lower tax base, and that means less money going to the county/local municipality.

As an example, over 90% of Bradford County in Pennsylvania is leased to a natural-gas corporation.   They boasted about all the jobs and the boom to their local economy.    Now, they are up in arms, the natural-gas corporations are pulling out, jobs are lost, and all the eggs in one basket are broken.

This has not passed unnoticed by Covert NY and Covert is working hard to prevent it from happening to them.

Will Covert residents be successful in obtaining a local responsive government, one that is representative of the will of the people?    Just as Covert has watched Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania residents need to watch Covert and take a few lessons on what a truly representative government is all about.

Visit COVERTCOUNTS.ORG and watch them become a government of the people, for the people, and by the people.
