LUCK OR INFLUENCE?
Does Mayor Sorace’s husband, Christian Recknagel, have good luck or does he have influence (click here for the LNP article shown above}?
First he was a vice-president at Benchmark Construction when they got the huge Lancaster Square construction contract (LNP never once mentioned that huge conflict of interest) and now he’s at TAIT/Rock Lititz!
Does it seem extremely odd to anyone else that Rock Lititz is building a Covid-19 injection site? It’s not quite like building a stage for Taylor Swift!

The headline to today’s LNP editorial in the print edition and Susanne Cassidy, LNP opinion editor.
How dare this woman carry on about the Pennsylvania State Police when her newspaper has completely ignored the Lancaster City Police (click here for the editorial online titled “Pennsylvania State Police should face questions, review during budget hearings”).
City council held an executive session on Tuesday at 6:00 pm before their public meeting beginning a half-hour later to discuss granting an officer’s disability coverage. Assuming this is the first many of the council members were informed of this by city administrator Patrick Hopkins, they then added it to the agenda for the night and voted to give officer Brittany Porreca disability coverage within an hour of their secret discussion.
And LNP has not said a word about it. If this were the Manheim Township School Board, LNP would be demanding that Patrick Hopkins and council president Ismail Smith-Wade-El resign.
Police work is dangerous. How was this young officer injured? What can be done to prevent this in the future? A young public servant is disabled and the public has no information about it.
And Cassidy goes on and on about the PA State Police and ignores the racist hiring by the Lancaster Police for years and the numerous lawsuits for excessive force and civil rights violations against the department. And LNP doesn’t say a word about all of the unsolved murders in the city.
The whole point of this editorial seems to be that LNP is a “partner” in SpotlightPA when that media organization doesn’t list LNP as a partner. And they should not. Send a tip to SpotlightPA and have them investigate the millions wasted by the city on MAW Communications. Tell them about the book “Pressed” and that it did not end with the convention center/Marriott Hotel. No, LNP came back again for millions in public money for their for-profit, off the tax-rolls Marriott Hotel “expansion.” And Mayor Danene Sorace was their biggest backer and that is why they treat her and her administration with kid gloves. Tell SpotlightPA that LNP breaks every code of journalism ethics in this country. Tell them that LNP has missed opportunity after opportunity to hold the Lancaster Police accountable.
