Betrayal and Deliverance of a Community
by Pasco L. Schiavo
For any sovereign state to fail to allow a community whose people are deprived of the benefits and advantages of regional or county government to have its own regional or county government is an injustice against those people.
The Hazleton area community in Pennsylvania is a good example of such a deprived community whose predicament is further complicated by its being divided up among three separate counties: Luzerne, Carbon, and Schuylkill. However, since this community does not have a county unto itself, it is deprived of all benefits and advantages that come with having a county government solely for that community.
The sovereign state of Pennsylvania has failed to allow any of its deprived communities the opportunity of having their own county government.
Pasco L. Schiavo, in Betrayal and Deliverance of a Community, has stated a case for the creation of a county solely for the Hazleton area community and other communities like it and has drawn up a proposed act supporting his argument, affirming that such communities deserve their own county governments.
