Everybody has this complaint
PLAINS TWP. -John Lucernoni brought a large crowd of supporters with him to Thursday’s commissioners meeting to protest the poor condition of the streets in Hudson Gardens.
He asked Chairman Ronald Filippini why the township hasn't paved his street, Kennedy Drive, and a number of other streets there in almost 40 years.
Filippini agreed that the streets are in deplorable condition, adding that when revenue from Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs starts coming in, then the township will be able to pave the roads. He said the township also is looking into other forms of revenue to address the problem.
So the slots are going to pave our streets, build a new arena for the Pittsburgh Penguins and cure male pattern baldness. Oh yeah, you might get a break on your property taxes if everything comes up roses. Who will really benefit from more gambling? Maybe this guy.
