On the other side, we hear how the whole NIZ is corrupt, how the process is illegal, how it's awful for the whole region, and oh yeah, how awful the Mayor is who oversees it. In fact, he's awful enough to make Mayors this side previously disliked (and I supported, by the way) seem fine.
I want to see the arena built. I even want to see the office space in downtown Allentown. I also understand why the overwhelming majority of Valley residents don't want the NIZ, and why it harms them. I think this issue has run it's course though. We get the points at this point. Now, let's wait for some new news.
