— The city has posted the video of last night’s city council meeting and I am watching it now (click here).
UPDATE ON CC EVENTS
Kevin R. Molloy, the Executive Director of the Lancaster County Convention Center, called me shortly after 1:00 pm today. He said there are no events listed for two reasons (see below in this post):
— The customer does not want it publicized.
— The competition (Erie, Hershey, Philadelphia, etc.) uses it to try and lure them away to their city.
He would not state how many events they have in the upcoming months but he did say that the months between Memorial Day and Labor Day are always slow for the convention industry.
He said the busy convention season is from after Labor Day to Thanksgiving and then the months of January, February and March.
He said he might tell his marketing department to delete the events tab unless a customer wants their event listed and then they will put up the tab and the event.
*** Keith Schweigert, who used to work for LNP but now is the digital content producer for Fox 43, has a scary video of the new traffic circle on his Twitter account (click here).
** Speaking of the convention center, when you go to their website and click on “Events” what comes up is below (click here). Are there really no scheduled events or are they not posting them?
* And LNP never says a word about the city’s failure to livestream these meetings – in fact, I think they like it. That way they control what the public knows.
It took LNP and reporter Tim Stuhldreher three days to report on the financial crisis and the city applying to the state Department of Community and Economic Development’s Early Intervention Program. This site went up with the breaking news on the same night as the meeting and it took LNP three days to slant the story and blame everything on the state.
And of course, LNP wants the public to think everything in Lancaster is just fine so they can attract conventions and customers to LNP’s for-profit, off the tax-rolls Marriott Hotel. It’s disgusting.
There was this excellent comment under the LNP article and of course the PSP stands for the Penn Square Partners who are made up of LNP and High Industries (click here):
