I was in attendance at Tuesday’s county commission meeting and I was disappointed that Commissioners Steve Dershem and Chris Exarchos did not allow Centre County residents the opportunity to examine the merits of Commissioner Michael Pipe’s presentation on keeping Centre Crest a county nursing home.
Pipe devoted great time and research into his presentation and decision.
Instead, they pushed through to a vote, neglecting to keep their promise to hold additional public forums before making their decisions.
I expect my elected officials to be open and transparent with their actions and votes. This did not seem to be the case on Tuesday.
Never miss a local story.
My hope is that the nonprofit board of directors will take Pipe’s ideas more seriously than his fellow commissioners did.
