A Story Worth Reading: Allentown Grants

Signs-closed_sign There is a story in today’s (Sunday, May 2) Morning Call, written by Jarrett Renshaw, that is a “must read” for anyone who is interested in the politics and the future of Allentown. Titled, “Mixed track record on grants for Allentown businesses”, you can read it for yourself by clicking on the live link.

It’s a fascinating and discouraging portrait of a city hall and an administration that has become for all practical purposes, a theocracy.

No need to do a recap. I’d rather you read it for yourself. I will close with the one overriding impression that remained with me after I read the story: If I were one of the city workers who has been laid off, I’d be furious.
