Is Norman Dorn Ignorant or a Liar?

A Column by the Editor
web posted May 3, 2012

COLUMN – District 1 County Councilman Norman Dorn is either the most ignorant member of the county council or he is an opportunistic liar. Twenty minutes of the two hour meeting Tuesday night were wasted listening to his rants of falsehoods. Of course, all the while explaining to the citizens present how he is the only one on council that that is looking out for the taxpayer's money.

That in itself is laughable when he wants the county to spend over $3 million to provide water to about 40 homes and even more money on the Northside Park where there is no county recreation.

However, the question remains - is he intentionally lying at the meetings or is he just so ignorant of the facts, which having served for 20 years on council you would expect him to have a clue on how the county is run, that he simply makes the false statements out of ignorance? 

I supposed he could be delusional or senile, but I'm not a medical professional so I will leave that diagnosis to someone qualified to make such a determination.

Every claim Dorn made during the meeting was met with facts showing how he was completely wrong. Moreover, when he would be proven wrong he would then speak to the public reminding them no one on the county council will ask these types of questions if it were not for him.

That was probably the only true statement he made. Everyone else on county council understands the budget, how the county government works, what is funded and by how much. They have these things called brains and the necessary intellect to understand what they are reading.

It is past time to send Mr. Dorn home into retirement and remove the most embarrassing member representing the county for good. The voters of District 1 have a duty to themselves to elect a thinking and educated representative to work for them and their district, as well as the county.

Dorn is the last holdover of the previous county council that held the county stagnant for the past 20 years that will be on the ballot this November. It is time for voters to forget about party affiliation and vote local in District 1. Dump Dorn once and for all.
