    There was less enthusiasm in this meeting with the candidates for state senate than most job interviews. When asked what the first thing candidates would do in the first 100 days in office the subdued responses, or none at all, made it clear that none had done their homework. Multiple times the different candidates could not or would not answer questions from moderator Scott Fisher. The two Republicans Wagner and Miller stated several times “they would have to look into that,” when asked specific questions requiring pointed answers about state pensions and property taxes. None could answer the question about the collection of the 5% tax from gas drillers in PA, when it is already built into the price and other states are charging drillers already. This interview was an example of how under-informed York County politicians have turned off under-informed York County voters and why only 16% will turn out to vote.
