  • AFTERNOON UPDATE – CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION NOW!

    HOW DID LNP GET
    EVEN MORE OF YOUR MONEY?

         This question in today:
         Did you ever get that letter from the state concerning use of CRIZ funds for small businesses?
         I have not gotten it and it’s my fault. I requested it today with a Right to Know request. The holidays caught up with me. I will publish it when received.
         I also put in two other Right to Know requests today: One to see if MAW made their October payment on the $1.5 million dollar loan from the city and a request for the application by Penn Square Partners  (LNP and High Industries) for even more CRIZ money ($531,183) for their Marriott hotel expansion.
         I truly do not understand this. I assume they put in an application – or did they just go to the meeting and say, “Hey guys, if you have any ‘extra’ CRIZ money would you give it to us?”
         How and why would they get even more money for their for-profit, off the tax-rolls hotel? As I said this morning, this is sheer corruption and needs to be investigated. I will be writing the PA CRIZ Board for answers! This is an outrage! This is disgusting!

    *******

    LNP: STEALING
    FROM THE PUBLIC!

    Other allocations include:

    • $900,000 for furnishings and fixtures at the convention center, part of the financial rescue package arranged in 2014.
    • $531,183 toward construction of the Marriott hotel expansion.

    From the LNP article, “Lancaster CRIZ authority’s $6.4M goes to Lancaster Square projects, stadium, etc.” (click here).  
         This is simply unbelievable! Why would LNP’s Marriott hotel expansion get another single dime? The corruption in Lancaster is incredible and being led by LNP!
    Please check back later today.

    1. Did you ever get that letter from the state concerning use of CRIZ funds for small businesses?

    2. A former small business owner I know said the hell with it and moved out of the city leaving his business shuttered and reopening shop far from Lancaster county.

      Before leaving he ended up having to hire a lawyer to fill out the CRIZ forms. He said at the outset that none of the money would go to any small businesses. What the small businesses were required to do to once again line the PSP deep pockets. And he was right. How many other small businesses had to shell out money to feed the Steinman maw? And nary a peep of protest.

    3. By the way, the LNP hypocrisy continues.

      Not long ago, a cop killed himself and the paper did the LPDs bidding and not a word was written.

      Fast forward and​ a minor commits suicide and they don’t waste a minute to say so.

      Don’t tell me that they not only protect the cops from the citizens. They collude with them.

    4. Good questions. It sure appears they gave gobs of money to Steinman, High, and Meeder just becuase they could. God forbid they operate the CRIZ in good faith and rightfully return money to the state if there is not a clear good justified use.
