Thank you for your response.

I think that the Borough of Etna taxpayers and residents have a right to know Mary Ellen Ramage's education level, in light of the 2017 salary of $80,628 that she is drawing.

According to Wikipedia and the census records,,_Pennsylvania, "(sic) The median income for a household in the borough was $31,529, and the median income for a family was $41,577. Males had a median income of $31,386 versus $23,601 for females. The per capita income for the borough was $17,580. About 7.5% of families and 9.2% of the population were below the poverty line, including 12.0% of those under age 18 and 17.5% of those age 65 or over."
