ALL IN THE FAMILY?
Next year there will be a big change in Lancaster County’s hotel tax. The amount of the tax isn’t changing, but the revenue is being redirected and some hotel operators say it’s unfairly going to benefit one place.
From WGAL-TV, “Lancaster County’s Hotel Tax To Be Redirected,” (click here).
Wow! WGAL actually does a good piece on this disaster which will make the top ten worst list for years to come. All brought to you by the Lancaster Newspapers (and President Judge Joseph Madenspacher) who broke every journalism code of ethics to build this white elephant sitting in the heart of downtown Lancaster.
There are also excellent comments coming in under “A FINE MESS!” below. Where’s the update on this story? Where is President Judge Joseph Madenspacher’s ruling on this? He gets paid the big bucks to make the “hard” decisions. Is Kathleen Harrison, one of the jury commissioners in question and who is normally outspoken about everything, finally going to speak her peace (also see “THE EDGE OF GLORY?” below)? Will she resign for the “good” of the county taxpayers? Who did appoint her and who did she replace? Could it be her own son?
This has been an incredibly busy two weeks for me and I will try to make it up by continuing to publish straight through the New Year! Have mercy!
