Light Kicking, No Screaming Over Stadium
Left out were a few comments by naysayer Andy Lewis and supporter Linda Cartisano.
Lewis told me the $30 million in county money might be better spent trying to lure a manufacturing business to the city by actually funding the building of a plant. After all, manufacturing jobs typically pay more than part-time stadium work.
Cartisano said the day of Chester as a manufacturing town are over. Those jobs have gone overseas and to Mexico, she said. Better to focus on Chester as a riverfront destination for entertainment, shopping and good living.
All the county money for the project will come from Chester's Harrah's racino revenues which must, by law, go toward economic development.
