City council meets virtually tonight beginning at 6:30 pm and you can watch the livestream on the city’s YouTube channel (click here). The agenda is below and also available in a larger format here.
Please note Administration Bill No. 09-2021 amending the Traffic Commission. Mayor Sorace no longer wants to be on it which leaves an opening for another member. And Tony Dastra wants to be appointed and deserves to be appointed. He ran as an independent in the last mayoral election and he livestreamed city council meetings by himself, at his own expense, for over a year. He is also an active commenter during the meetings. Which city council member will have the courage to nominate Tony Dastra for the Traffic Commission?
IS IT JERRY?
* To the commenter asking if the man shown in the LNP article, “Man used fake money for purchases at Manheim Township Walmart: police,” is Jerry Puryear of the Facebook page “Staywoke717” (click here): I have met Jerry in person several times and I definitely do not believe that is him.
Also, I believe the policeare familiar enough with him that if it were Jerry he would have been arrested by now! On to more serious news! Oh, and if you recognize the man shown above please call the Manheim Township police.
SAY IT AIN’T SO!
A sharp commenter and an emailer caught the fact that the mayor’s bagel shop is closing – right after she gave them a shout-out at a city council meeting! Say it ain’t so!
Do you remember when then Mayor Gray used to compare Lancaster very favorably to York, Reading and Harrisburg at least once a month? Here’s some breaking news for you, Dick and Mayor Sorace: Neither York, Reading or Harrisburg have a huge, empty convention center sitting in the heart of their downtowns and putting their public at financial risk for years.
I’m hearing all sorts of things about House of Representatives Mike Sturla and his “replacement” when he retires. Can you say Ismail Smith-Wade-El? Nooooooo!
And speaking of Smith-Wade-El, city council meets tonight. Will that lapdog, LNP executive editor Tom Murse, have a reporter cover it? Will he use a correspondent who reports on it four days later? Will he report when they break the Sunshine Act or does he save that only for the volunteer Manheim Township School Board? Has Mayor Sorace already given LNP her “Mayor’s Report” for tonight? Have they approved it?
