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
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
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.
