All the NIZ That Fits the Print!

By now, you've probably guessed I can't get enough of this NIZ story. Bethlehem and Northampton County officials are very grateful that I'm dredging in Allentown. Don't worry,  I'll be back soon, but not before I get my bottom-feeding fins on a copy of Mayor Edwin Pawlowski's year-end campaign finance report, which is due today.

Speaking of campaign finance reports, among NIZ legislator Pat Browne's 20 top contributors in his 2010 Senate race are the following:

1. Lee Butz - NIZ beneficiary.
2. Joe Topper - NIZ beneficiary.
3. Bill Grube - NIZ Board Member Elec.t
4. PPL - They will benefit in many ways from the NIZ.

There goes that "archaic" thinking again.

Pay to Play, what's wrong with that?

Congress can still play insider trading while the rest of us pay for it...

Bernie -

I may have missed this, but is the NIZ board a volunteer position, or is there payment involved for serving?

You're up for a Pulitzer before this is done.What about Grube's restaurant.

I don't have the Ordinance creating the Board. I am supposed to get that today.
