So they are selling confederate flags at the Westmoreland Co. Fair...

here in Southwestern, PA. This is disgraceful. We have not attended the fair for years because the Fair Board allows this to happen.

10. Population decline, poverty plague Westmoreland County

Westmoreland County lost more population between 2010 and 2016 than any other county in Pennsylvania, peeling away jobs and businesses in a place brimming with local governments, water supply and treatment agencies and school districts.

New thinking is needed to reverse the decline, to improve local government collaboration, Westmoreland County Commissioner Ted Kopas told the audience at a strategic planning hearing at Westmoreland County Community College in Youngwood.
