Republican Commissioner Charles Anderson, who replaced Ward last month, said he liked Bompiani but his presence on the water authority's board of directors could be dangerous to ratepayers.
"I was concerned about his record of tax increases. This impacts an awful lot of people, and we just have a philosophical difference of opinion," Anderson said.
I do feel a bit sorry for Bompiani. It is hard to be a school director because Harrisburg sort of passes the buck to the school districts to raise taxes. Oh well, I participated in the tagging of Bompiani as a tax loving school director too.
