Brodeur's On State Street, NOT!
Dan Brodeur has closed up shop and allegedly owes the borough $30,000 in back rent. Borough Council President Frank Daly says they'll go after Brodeur for the back rent. Brodeur's supporters claim he was chased out of the building (the former borough hall) by borough officials who were too demanding and unrelenting in lease negotiations.
Borough officials made a bad move when they didn't simply sell the building to the highest bidder a few years ago. Now, they are stuck with a white elephant, at least for a while. Getting Trader Joe's to come to Media was a smart savvy move. Not getting $1 million for the borough hall property at the top of the real estate market was a dumb one.
Win some, lose some.
