Rumor Mill: Hailstone Leaving Allentown

Sara Hailstone, Allentown's DCED Director and Executive Director of the secretive NIZ board, is reportedly resigning. I have no additional details.

Will she lose the legal services of the city as well? I would think se would have stayed on till after the FBI investigation.

Not surprising. This must be a nightmare for her.

She will make the right move regardless as to why she leaves.

Did Koval, the City Controller, resign as well? She was not in attendance at City Council tonight. She is usually there to report on what her interns are doing. Not much else.

The Mayor, as usual, was not in attendance at City Council.

The City taxpayers should not have to defend the Mayor and other employees against the FBI. City taxpayers should be paying to investigate the Mayor and figure out why the FBI took his cellphone and computer and raided his personal residence. We are told that we need to wait and let the FBI continue their investigation.

What a nightmare this must be for many people involved with the Mayor and the City.

She waited the proscribed "decent interval".
She is a great man and a pioneer.
The ship is going down and the Captain has lashed himself to the wheelhouse, it's every man for himself.
(I'm hearing Michael Sclossberg is cooperating with the FBI as a "friendly witnesse".)

Daddy will decide when it's time to jump overboard.

Her father got her the job in the first place.
She was even less qualified than her predecessor. It's entirely appropriate that Dad decides when she bails out,
It's time.

Hailstone's father is a Democratic power broker in the greater Scranton region.
As usual, her hire had nothing to do with competency, and everything to do with politics.

She does whatever the Mayor tells her to do.
No questions asked.
That's the only qualifications required.

And you got shit. You know nothing. Like itt or not, there are new and existing businesses thriving in Allentown and it didn't happen by accident. So you don't like the NIZ, get over it. The criz isn't generating ANY development and we are still debating the merits of tearing down Martin Tower. Sara did her best under difficult circumstances. Grow the fuck up.

And you are THE load that people avoid. Speaking in tongues is tolerated by those with empathy for small minded twits. You have worn out your tenuous welcome and are boring.....

Sara got the job because Daddy is a political fixer.
Wise the fuck up.

Left all sit back and see how many of these state subsidized businesses are still floating in 36 months. ��
