Just like A-town is diverting EIT from where it belongs, you're trying to divert attention away from the topic.

Hi Bernie -

Even though the arena won't directly benefit the bank account of South Whitehall Township, won't it positively affect the people who live in the Township?

Whether a person lives in the West End of Allentown or a few blocks away in South Whitehall, they will still have the benefit of a revitalized downtown and a new hockey arena.

I can't imagine this is going to cost the average South Whitehall citizen more than a couple dollars per year. It seems to me that if we forget the finger pointing and politics this is a win-win situation for all of us who live in the Lehigh Valley.

urban LV,

I am going to be publishing the comments of Don Frederick and Mr. Roma in a few minutes. They are commercial developers, and will answer your question. will answer your question. It goes way beyong the EIT tax diversion. It will depress commercial real estate value, meaning these owners will seek assessment reductions, meaning less tax revenue from commercial. It will be made up by taking the money from residential owners with tax hikes.

Crony Capitalism is definitely a win-win for the Brooks Brothers ...

... and it's only $ 160.0 million dollars, after all!

I definitely want my Social Programs and my Palace of Sport, too!

I say, make the greedy, evil Rich pay their fair share ... and all this messy stuff magically disappears.
