Here We Go Again
Well the elections are over, the good Mayor of Wilkes Barre has another 4 years in office and the feds seem to be taking an interest in the Hotel Sterling project that neatly lifted a cool 6 million ( at least ) from tax payers pockets. We here in Luzerne county have watched the feds run through county government from top to bottom turning a good many elected officials into former elected officials and felons. However Wilkes Barre city had largely been spared much to the surprise of a good many of us who live in Wilkes Barre and follow city politics. That seems to be changing and I won't speculate as to what, who or why the feds decided to start flipping rocks in Wilkes Barre to see what scurries out but I am going to stock up on popcorn.
