ON THE HOOK AGAIN
It appears that Luzerne County taxpayers may be on the hook again for the Sterling Hotel. The Federal freaking government has issued a report saying that the 6 million dollars loaned to City Vest was not supervised correctly and that they want the money back. No one from CityVest has been asked just what the hell they did with the 6 million dollars from the County. The time to start asking and investigating is right now. The bottom line is simply this, Luzerne County taxpayers are going to pay for the CityVest incompetence and mismanagement. Whether those guys ever get charged with anything will be another story. As a progressive, I don’t mind paying taxes to build on our future in this country to make sure everyone has a fair shake. But I abhor paying taxes to pay the bills of a bunch of idiots that took 6 million dollars in public funds and never even did anything but “study” what they were going to do with the Hotel. In the end and that’s where we’ll get it, we, the Luzerne County taxpayers will pay.
