A new road here will support greed — not need.”

I suppose this was to be expected. The Chamber of Commerce has decided to endorse the new route 23 project. This is pretty typical of how things go around here; jettison what the county really needs in favor of making money.

The thing that I really love about this is the affect it will have on the political environment in Lancaster. They'll build this new highway, they'll get more development and finally...they'll get more Democrats. As the population in this county grows the ratio of Democrats to Republicans improves in the Democrats favor.

That's fine for me politically. Unfortunately I actually have principles and would rather save some of the best farmland on the planet than get a few extra votes.

The other upside to this is that Mike Brubaker can finally take a position on the issue.
