"You hit the nail right on the head. The Lancaster Alliance is the reason that we have the CC, will have the trolley system, and may very well have the proposed Home Rule charter. Where are #1 Home Rule backer Tom Baldridge's roots...the Lancaster Alliance. Why does he have his current job...because he stewarded the CC project and saw to the implementation of the tax for his Alliance handlers. Who succeeded him there...Jack Howell. Whose bad-dream is this trolley...Jack Howell.
"These men answer not to the general community (City & County residents) or the business community at large (the Chamber), but rather that small, elite group known as the Lancaster Alliance. They say jump and Tom and Jack answer 'how high'! They are the true power in Lancaster County."
