Allentown Bureaucrats Living The Dream

The Morning Call and assorted Allentown bureaucrats treated each other very well this weekend. One article lauded how the new office space in the NIZ only has upsides, with none of the anticipated losses to existing commercial landlords. They overlooked a few harsh realities previously reported here at molovinsky. The Masonic Temple is losing it's large and substantial tenant, Buckno Lisicky Accounting. Lehigh Valley Health Network will add insult to injury by steering it's patients to the inconvenience of appointments at 7th and Hamilton. Another article in The Morning Cheerleader referred the the business incubation programs by Allentown Economic Development Corporation. They incubated a go-cart track in the former Mack Factory and shared office space in Fountain Park. They're currently working with some marketing teenagers, which have received their 37th option extension on the Neuweiler site.

Another article on Dec 22 mentioned that he is short of his fundraising goal and in the article put out a s.o.s. for help for his Governors race. Every thing is not going good in Allentown.

Thanks for the giggle. "Adding insult to injury" cracked me up, as did the rest of this piece.

Great post. All they've done is poach tenant from other areas of the lehigh valley. Where are all the out-of-state companies that Pat Browne, Mayor Ed, et al were promising? This horrible journalism was 'enhanced' by yet another glowing story about the local housing market. They use the head of a LV realtors group to boast on the non-existant 'growth.' Amazing!

Yes the accounting firm is moving. But, it isn't due to the NIZ. Buckno was moving in any case. Just like Parente and Concannon they did it for business reasons.
