Mario Civera: Word Breaker

Is it unfair to say that Mario Civera is a phony and a liar when he said he would step down from his state rep job if he won a seat on county council?

No, it's not unfair. It's harsh but it's fair.

OK, so he's doing it for the sake of the county GOP machine. That doesn't make it any more honorable or palatable. He got the Daily Times endorsement for a county council seat in part because of his promise to step down from one office to hold the other. He isn't doing that, which means he's going back on his word.

We thought he was a better man than that. We were wrong.

Your seat will be lost, Mario, it's the risk you had to run in going after county council.

Instead, you're giving County Democrats and Independents a good reason to wake up and vote for the Democratic Candidates when three seats are up in 2011.

Civera was stupid on this one. The worst thing a politician can do is renege on their word. Mario is a good man and he has done and will continue to do great work for Delaware County, but someone needs to let him know that your word is your bond.

If he doesn't give up his seat, I'll vote for the democratic candidates in 2011 no matter who runs - even if one of them is that ACLU jackass who ran in 2007.
