          This online headline to today’s LNP editorial is deceptive: This is nothing but heaped on praise for the Mayor who gave LNP $10 million of your dollars for their for-profit, off the tax rolls Marriott Hotel expansion (click here). 
          There is not a mention of the huge conflict of interest with Benchmark Construction, the $5 million dollars thrown away to MAW Communications, the tax increase, UPMC Pinnacle closing and police brutality to name just a few of the problems they totally ignore.
         Get a new, legitimate and ethical source of news for Lancaster County! This is simply despicable by LNP.



    1. Was the “Editorial” board wearing their cheerleading outfits during the interview?

    2. Maybe! I was wondering why they didn’t live-stream it like they do with a lot of their meetings! Maybe it’s because they did have cheerleading outfits on? 😉 🙂

    3. Well we have pennlive. They do a better job covering lancaster county.

    4. I hate to nitpick but I think your readers would be better served if your headline read; “A New Sorace Of News”

    5. Good one! 🙂 🙂

    6. Remember that this is the same editorial page that just last week bemoaned the tax hit the City would take if Park City failed yet owns 50% of a tax-payer funded private City hotel that pays no taxes! It also called a sitting Commissioner the “Angel of Death”. Swimming in credibility they are NOT.

    7. Don’t forget what this county does to those who dare to criticize: With the full support and resources of the Lancaster County D-A, the county judiciary…AND the local news media.

    8. If you get a chance, you might want to take a look at what sort of corruption landed New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin in prison. I came across an article about his corrupt practices and it sure echoes what goes on in Lancaster. This latest Benchmark deal just screams collusion.

    9. Just wait til Craig Nifong is elected judge. We’re all f*cked. Unless, of course, your part of the Club.

    10. I’m surprised they didn’t ask what something that can alway’s be found in her refrigerator?
