Evans Calls Out Doherty

Democrat Scranton City Council Member Janet Evans called out Democrat Mayor Chris Doherty on his claims that he fought to cut his pay (she claims he never did) and that he is in favor of cutting spending (she claims he never was in practice.)

She also point out that under Doherty's "leadership":

Debt increased to $316,000,000

Borrowed over $100,000,000 to balance Scranton's Budget

Raised taxes 25%

And that Doherty actually sued to stop Scranton City Council from cutting what they saw as the "fat" from Scranton's budget.
