AFTERNOON UPDATE – HOW IS THIS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN?
“We have to create that culture,” Lancaster Mayor Danene Sorace said of making streets safer for pedestrians. Her statement came during a meeting this week with the LNP Editorial Board that touched on a wide range of city topics but sparked some spirited discussion when pedestrian safety was mentioned.
From today’s LNP editorial, “We must change the culture on pedestrian safety,” (click here).
As noted previously on this site, Mayor Danene Sorace met with LNP to get their “approval” for her “State of the City” address prior to giving it Tuesday night. And as noted previously, this is not the way journalism is supposed to work.
So, did this “wide range of city topics” include her husband being a vice-president of Benchmark Construction?
Did it include the promised affordable internet for all and the $5 million dollars they’ve given to MAW Communications that has resulted in absolutely nothing?
To answer the commenters question below: “How is this allowed to happen?” It is “allowed” to happen because of corrupt, greedy and unethical LNP! That’s how! After all, Sorace was instrumental in their receiving close to $10 million taxpayer dollars for their for-profit, off the tax-roles Marriott Hotel expansion. The corruption is astonishing!
There will be more tomorrow including the outrageous and disgusting hypocrisy and lies of managing editor Tom Murse.
CONFLICT OF INTEREST!

From the LNP article:
Benchmark Construction would manage the project, which has a preliminary price tag of $23 million.
Yes, Mayor Sorace’s husband certainly has ties with Benchmark Construction. When will LNP tell the public about this and the fact that Benchmark employees were the largest contributors to Sorace’s campaign?
