Chump Change in Allentown

Recently, Mayor Ed Pawlowski said that the community would share in the benefits of Allentown's transformation, and that he was directing $2.5million towards that end. As the riverfront and the Neuweiler Brewery projects come on line, we are fast approaching the $1 billion dollar mark with the NIZ state tax rape. Advocates for community benefit should not despair that their share is less than one quarter of one percent, because the mayor has indicated that more may come their way, if they behave themselves.

And to think so many STILL believe this is all free money!

They must think the billion dollars carved out of the normal state budget will not be replaced in some way.

Fun with numbers, that's all.

Mayor P has a billion+ for 1% of Allentown and crumbs for the 99% of us. He's got his priorities straight, he know exactly what he wants...and it doesn't have anything to do with what's best for you.

I will believe it when I see it, There is still an allocated .5 allocated that has never came to fruit? That is if two hosing of the children and the blow up movie theater accounts for the .5?

With this addministration calculated miscalculations anything is possible? With the powerpoint dance in counsil chambers the slipp of a digit is a givin?
