In my opinion, Councilwoman Theresa Pierno is "lily-livered."
She is a recent transplant from New Jersey (1985) who has suddenly become an expert in the problems of the county.
She doesn't have enough guts to deal with a really serious problem facing the county, which is recycling. It doesn't take an expert to figure out the name of the game is "developer bashing." A mandatory recycling legislation would of fend her homeowner friends who, like her, take the position "Iam here, now let's shut the door behind us and keep everyone out."
This kind of myopic approach to solving the problems of the county will only increase the cost of housing and will create hardships for first-time homebuyers, which of course seems to be her objective.
Think about it Mrs. Pierno, you wouldn't be here if it wasn't for a developer. This is one instance where we should have "shot the developer" in 1986.
