AFTERNOON UPDATE -WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF THE CITY?
Wow! Married elected officials pushing to be in control of our tax dollars. Sounds like the fox guarding the hen house.
A comment posted on Lancaster Online under the story, “State Sen. Scott Martin, county treasurer Amber Martin, push tax collector bill in Harrisburg hearing,” (click here).
So, LNP and Caucus editor, Tom Murse, did you check the bonds your office received for Lancaster County Treasurer Amber Martin? Did you?
You see, when she was elected treasurer her name was Amber Green. Remember that, Tom? So shouldn’t there be a bond in the name of “Amber Green?”
Maybe your new and recent college graduate reporter, Carter Walker, who received the bonds and wrote the story, “Lancaster County treasurer secures insurance to collect municipal taxes,” doesn’t know (click here)!
Why wouldn’t he know, Tom? Because you never told the public that State Senator Scott Martin married Lancaster County Treasurer Amber Green after both got divorces (Scott secretly for the second time) and she took his name and became Amber Martin!
It gets messy when you withhold information from the public, doesn’t it, Tom? Your own reporters might not know important facts like there should be a bond in the name of Amber Green!
Are you going to do some relentless independent investigative reporting to find out why there is a missing bond, Tom, and tell the public why they are not protected?
To be continued: Why didn’t Tom tell the public about Scott and Amber?
NEWS OR AD?
Two decades ago, developers asked to invest in downtown Lancaster might have replied, “Why should I?”
Today the answer is more likely to be, “Why not?”
Thanks largely to hundreds of millions of dollars of investment in the past dozen or so years, center city has been transformed from an ailing area to an appealing one.
