This letter to the editor of the Pocono Record dated May 3, 2012 comes from a County Commissioner in Stroudsburg, PA and echos in many ways, the concerns and even fears had by those who oppose Corbett’s proposed 20% cut to MH/ID services but the writer takes it a step further and explains a little about why the proposed block grant won’t work.   Hats off to this County Commissioner for making her concerns known publicly.
