Harrisburg, PA – City council turned down the posposal for Eastern University to lease unused space in the City Hall building.
This was an opportunity for the city to rent out space in the basement of the city government property, and Eastern University offered to spend $600,000 on building renovations.
Of the rejected deal, Harrisburg resident Anthony Harrell says: “City Council I am with you on this, the mayor sprung this on you and the citizens, and he already had it set up!”
Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse responded: “We are going to take taxpayer dollars to help fix a building instead of potholes and playgrounds, and to me, it was a no-brainer, and we should have moved forward with a partnership with Eastern.”
Beau Brown, a 17 year commercial real estate veteran says he can help Eastern University find an alternative site.
He was in favor of the proposed deal, and stated in the past that it seemed like Eastern U and the administration worked hard on the feasibility exercise to locate at city hall.
Brown stated that despite prior disagreements with the administration – he believes that he could serve both the client and the city’s interests by finding a site where the city can still benefit directly or indirectly.
This was a clean partnership proposal and it shouldn’t fall to the back burner.
Let’s work together to find a beneficial alternative.
Harrisburg, PA – After an early day trip to Canada to meet with Prime Minister Trudeau, President Trump visited Harrisburg on Wednesday (Oct. 11,2017) to discuss job creation through his new tax plan. Network host Sean Hannity was also in town to interview the President about his new plan for America.
Trump spoke in front of an audience of roughly 1,000 people, including lots of truckers, against a backdrop of big rigs at a local air plane hangar. Trump pitched a plan that would dramatically cut corporate tax rates from 35 percent to 20 percent, reduce the number of personal income tax brackets and boost the standard deduction.
The meeting also included 50-100 people invited through political and business circles, including David Black and members of CREDC.
Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse has been vocally outspoken against the President of the United States.
Is Papenfuse willfully resisting Trump? In thefollowing video, under the guise of a “grassroots” effort, Papenfuse inspired the anti-Trump anarchists who advocate for mob-rule:
The local developer/publisher bought the election of Papenfuse, Patty Kim, and Cornelius Johnson. He has already returned on his original investment through WCI, and has likely profited significantly from the so-called ‘pay-for-play’ scheme.
Hartzler uses his twitter account and media outlet ‘theBurg‘ to sow discord in America, and to indoctrinate the Harrisburg population by attempting to normalize leftist ideology.
Specifically, Hartzler influences the midtown Harrisburg yuppie crowd, who is 100% complacent in spreading extreme leftist ideology that creates a divide in our nation.
With no regard for credibility in his sources, on a daily basis the publisher retweets the most trending anti-Trump stories. These postings dictate the narratives that are purveyed by his close followers.
With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!
Much of the #FakeNews that is purveyed by the anti-Trump resistance is based in partisan opinion, and often the supporting facts in these stories have been debunked by various competing media outlets. Another tactic of these leftist; to develope a false narrative based on a typical daily interaction, then create liberal outrage and backlash.
It has also be suggested by Harrisburg insiders that “TheBurg and it’s 2nd command, Lawrance Binda has accepted the torch passed to it by #FakeNews alpha-dog; Pennlive. Binda consistently imposes his views for himself and his boss as “truth” and believes that Midtown is the center of the universe, where terms for everyone are dictated.”
This liberal media has perverted the mind of many Americans who now believe wholeheartedly in the anti-Trump news, and even network executives are willing to condone violence against Trump supporters:
The leftist controlled media has created a revolution of anarchist who wish to overthrow the government:
The Washington Post has also been a leading source in the leftist war on Trump.
However, more recently The Washington Post has displayed hints of a shifting political culture toward the ‘Make America Great Again’ movement, evident in this recent opinion piece predicting a win for Trump in 2020.
Overwhelming, public opinion stands against the disadvantages of globalization on America, and the MSM is showing signs of beginning to shift towards that pro-national sentiment. Will our local publisher follow suit with the patriotic shift in mainstream media culture? Will Papenfuse and company follow along?
Can't believe I finally got a good story in the @washingtonpost. It discusses the enthusiasm of "Trump" voters through campaign….
Dauphin County released evidence today to the plaintiff, Timothy Rowbottom, in his case against Karl Singleton, Senior Advisor to Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse.
On May 09, 2017, around 9 p.m., the plantiff alleges that Mr. Singleton threatened the man in a physically intimidating manner, and alluded to knowing his home address. This incident occurred in the Harrisburg Hilton Hotel during the 2017 Mayoral debate. Singleton and Rowbottom were both in attendance at the debate event that took place that evening in the 2nd floor Ballroom.
When Rowbottom attempted to serve the Harrisburg Police department today, he was told “No” they can’t accept the supoena.
When asked to put it in writing, HBG PD complied and accepted the supoenas for more evidence.
Harrisburg City Solicitor Neil Grover also attempted to withhold evidence when he aggressively approached the plaintiff in city hall recently.
In a similar politically motivated threat, it’s also been alleged that the defendant Karl Singleton physically threatened Dauphin County Commissioner Jeffrey Haste after an informal meeting several years ago. That particular incident was broken up by other county officials who were present.
Harrisburg, PA – The Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority (HRA) & HBG Economic Development Director Jackie Parker is accused of bypassing the legal planning process in order to steal property in Allison Hill. Harrisburg officials violated the Urban Redevelopment Act of PA.
In a letter sent to Harrisburg Redevelopment Authority solicitor Stu Magdule, a Harrisburg resident presents the solid case against the illegal processes. It is detailed how Harrisburg City coordinated a subversion of private property rights and ownership, by using the Brownfield planning fund.
A private attorney counciling the citizen believes this could spark a grand jury investigation. The call is for the United States attorney general to intervene.
The letter was certified and sent to the following recipients:
Eric Papenfuse, Neil Grover, Bryan Davis, George Payne, Harrisburg City Council, Harrisburg Planning Commision, Dauphin County Commissioners, John DiSanto, Edward Marsico, Josh Shapiro, Jeffrey Sessions
City Council and the planning commission were sent certified copies of the letter because HRA kept them in the dark
Harrisburg, PA – “The announcement that Amazon would build a $5 billion facility supporting 50,000 jobs immediately lit up social media. Some local citizens and officials suggested that the sprawling, for-sale Harrisburg State Hospital grounds off Cameron Street would be a perfect fit.” – theBurg
However, varying political agendas almost squashed the deal before it gained traction. An essential component of the proposal requires cooperation between Harrisburg Mayor and the president of the Regional Chamber, among other opposing forces.
David Black, president of Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce and CREDC initially said: “Harrisburg is too small to put in a bid, but I do think there’s an opportunity to put in a bid with partners in York and Lancaster.”
Harrisburg City Councilman Westburn Majors expressed motivation to engage local government and private entities together in this process. “It is my hope that the administration can work with the county, the commonwealth, local business groups such as the Chamber, CREDC, etc., to determine if putting in an application is something that they would consider,” Majors said.
Brandon Flood and Beau Brown, who are both active in local & state politics, also engaged in the social media conversation. Brown expressed deep interest and insight into the potential Amazon deal, and began drafting preliminary concepts for a proposal in front of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
Meanwhile, Bruce P Weber (HBG City Director of Finance) who is very active on social media, often echos the perspective of Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse. The tone of Weber seemed to brush off the Amazon deal as a no-go.
Jennie Jenkins makes an excellent point that preparing and proposing to Amazon executives would serve as a terrific protocol for organizing forces in Harrisburg, and potentially bringing future investment to the region.
Beau Brown flips the script on Weber when he compares former Harrisburg Mayor Steve Reed to the short-falls of the current administration. The City of Harrisburg was transformed under Mayor Steve Reed. He had an unmatched love for Harrisburg and equal drive & determination to get results.
A bold proposal was made by Beau Brown, who offered free services to help draw 50,000 Amazon jobs to Harrisburg. Brown published an advertisement for his proposal stating that in fact Harrisburg can fulfill the requirements, and the posting was circulated around on social media.
Perhaps Harrisburg leaders and CREDC heard the calls of the community, because within 2 weeks, a new twist to the story was reported by Pennlive on 9/25/2017 when David Black says: “We’re pulling apart the RFP Amazon issued to see what we need.”
Harrisburg will partner with Lancaster, York, Cumberland & Lebanon counties to fulfill the metro requirement of the RFP.
Brown says that this is an opportunity to get face-time and build rapport for Harrisburg in front of one of the most powerful corporate owners in the world. Also, this experience will serve as excellent practice for pitching our region to investors. He also makes the point that proposing to Bezos would only be to the potential benefit of Harrisburg and the entire region. We should not pass up such an opportunity, as we are negotiating with an unpredictable entrepreneur, not a legislative body with strict rules to follow.
Beau Brown is uniquely qualified. He has a Reed-like drive and passion for the City of Harrisburg. Brown’s advocacy for the city is evident through the multiple published reports and editorials that have appeared in the Central Penn Business Journal, including this following article where Brown lays out a road map plan to land a deal such as the Amazon headquarters.
If Harrisburg and regional leaders are serious about this huge proposal, Brown’s negotiating and real estate experience should be utilized in making this deal.
Here, in a rare moment of clarity, Weber comes to his senses and recognizes the brilliance and potential in Brown’s proposal:
As reported by Newsweek, AntiFA is now considered a Domestic Terrorist Organization by the FBI and DHS:
In Harrisburg, PA, local city leaders have organized a forum to spread awareness for citizens to “Know Your Rights.” The panelist include a great cast of folks, other than one name that stands apart from the rest. This individual is a known AntiFA leader and has spewed Anti-Police rhetoric throughout town. Chris Siennick advises criminals how to manipulate law enforcement officers, and the criminal justice system.
This forum will be held in Harrisburg on September 27:
Chris Siennick is a known AntiFA leader who openly corresponds and organizes with violent AntiFA crews from Philadelphia:
Those protests were organized by Siennick and resulted in a police horse being stabbed with a flag pole, and police being sprayed with skin irritant chemicals.
It prompted Police in Harrisburg to request an additional $65,000 for riot gear:
Siennick is proud to admit that he is a paid agitator:
Siennick’s closest associates are anti-government extremist:
Host of the Harrisburg Hope event, Brandon Flood claims that no side show will take place under his watch. He also cites Siennick’s victim mentality going into this forum, and mentions that this list of panelist “may be augmented by one or two folks.”
Here is a collection of recent anti-Police rhetoric, more violent references will be released over time:
Siennick has no respect for the tough job of Police:
Siennick offers a $200 bounty for his followers to shoot down a HPD police drone:
Siennick also tracks and broadcasts the whereabouts of our HPD and their family members:
Update: In following up with this story, the individual who filed the complaint also has had his RTK request and subpoena for evidence intentionally withheld by city solicitor Neil Grover. Grover allegedly confronted the individual in an aggressive manner, and then told him he’d never give him the records. More RTK requests were filed immediately by the citizen.
Harrisburg, PA – In a motion recently filed by Timothy Rowbottom against the senior advisor to Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse, Karl Singleton has been named in a $12,000 civil suit for threatening life of the Mayor’s constituent.
In a written statement by the plaintiff, it has be alleged that on May 09, 2017, around 9 p.m., the defendant, Mr. Singleton threatened the man and alluded to knowing his home address. This incident occurred in the Harrisburg Hilton Hotel during the 2017 Mayoral debate. Singleton and Rowbottom were both in attendance at the debate event that took place that evening in the 2nd floor Ballroom.
The plaintiff believes this was a politically motivated threat.
Sean M GuayThe ‘Resistance Movement’ emulates the tactics of black bloc, and has aligned with the terrorist of AntiFA. It is a threat to American freedom.
Such a shame that so-called citizens of Harrisburg would display pride in being aggressively disruptive.
Carrie FowlerIf you think the resistance movement is a threat to American freedoms, then you don’t understand how this country was built.
Sean M GuayThis country was not built by aligning with terrorist.
Carrie FowlerWhat do you think the monarchy thought of our founding fathers? You need a history lesson.
Robert BrandtSeriously Carrie Fowler, did you just compare our founding fathers to ANTIFA?? LMFAO!! And I saw a pic you posted awhile back with you supporting ANTIFA so spin more spin doctor.
Sean M Guay:You all (the resistance) missed that while you were busy sympathizing with AntiFA, spreading hatred about America and our President.
Carrie Fowler: I will spread hatred about and for Trump till the day I take my last breath. He does not represent me or 58% of this country. He is a national embarrassment.
Amy Thomas: NJ DHS listed AntiFa as domestic terrorists. Aligning with them when your seeking a position in the public school system board…what message does that send to the children, their families and the tax payers? Fine, you don’t like Trump but to associate with domestic terrorists? Wow
Sean M Guay:AntiFA assaulted a police horse, harassed civilians and police in the street around 3rd and Forester, blocked traffic and sprayed a chemical mixture at police in Harrisburg on June 10.
Carrie Fowler, you are a current school board director elect, and as a ‘leader’ in this community, the citizens of Harrisburg must look to you for guidance.
Will you publicly condemn the violent activities of AntiFA and any person associated with them?
Amy Thomas Carrie Fowler, Do you condemn AntiFa? Simple question.
Carrie Fowler: I do support them (AntiFA) for their efforts to stand against hate. Am I a member? No. On that Saturday (June 10) in question Antifa were the only ones protecting the hate from walking down our streets and there was absolutely NO violence. Do I stand by everything they do ? No.
I am not tolerant of Trump and his hate. Not for one minute. I will expose him every chance I get. I will call him out every chance I get
Now have fun twisting my words to fit your agenda. I put action behind my words. I make mistakes just like everyone else, but when I do I admit them, learn from them and move on a better person.
Brittney Parker:Carrie Fowler I think it’s pretty interesting you say you will never tolerate hate, and then a few posts above this one you say you will spread hate for Trump till you take your last breath.
Of course, we all know you’re ok with facism and hatred as long as it’s someone or something you disagree with, am I right?
I don’t even like Trump, haha, I didn’t vote for him and left the GOP over it. But trying to claim the moral high ground on tolerance, diversity, and love while bragging about spreading hatred is pretty far out.
Apparently, Carrie Fowler was busy sympathizing with Antifa members, and while she was caught up in passionately spreading hatred of America and our President, she conveniently missed all the relevant national news about the violence and hatred that was caused by Antifa in Harrisburg on June 10, 2017. Recently, Fowler has become the Democratic mascot, making appearances on behalf of the party at every protest cause in the Pennsylvania State Capital.
Direct Link to the posting that was deleted (we have all screen shots) as soon as the connection to Siennick and AntiFA was established:
Brown asks the reader if an appointed (political friend) board member should have the ability to decide what goes on in a neighborhood where they don’t live in, or visit often.
Proving his case is a recent proposal by Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse, where he insisted that council pass resolution (6/6/17) to give control of two new code office appeals board slots to people from outside of the city.
Council pushed back very hard against this, and claimed it was outrageous to believe that the city has no talent, to which the mayor maintained was the case.
One council member asked the mayor why we are not advertising these two open seats, instead of giving them out to friends of the mayor to push a bizarre codes agenda.
That agenda has been discussed at length in central Allison Hill lately, as rumors of a class action lawsuit surface, whose members are being represented by the same attorney that successfully represented the Third Street Cafe against the mayor’s agenda.
Council president Wanda Williams told the mayor that a city resident (who was in the meeting) had submitted her resume in an effort to be considered for a certain board position, to which the mayor arrogantly asked: “Oh, so I’m just supposed to appoint ‘said person’?”
This negative tone comes just one week after the mayor asked this same city resident, in a personal meeting, how she could help him heal the divide in Harrisburg, between the city and its citizens.
The city resident’s response was that the only way to heal the divide is to atone for what you’ve done. To own up to your own actions that contributed to the divide.
It is important as city residents that we don’t allow the mayor to subvert our citizens rights by continuing to outsource control.
