Fingers in the Till?
The Philadelphia Parking Authority is beginning to clean up its act. I have been told that a little sunlight is often the best antiseptic . The Local press has been slamming them for over a year about overpayments, high salaries, padding payrolls and the like. Even the governor was quoted as being “shocked SHOCKED” at the goings on in the PPA.
What’s really classy is that the Republicans roared at the Democrats for the PPA scandals, and when they took over it seemed it was business as usual.
The latest is that they have fired a number of Consultants and are letting senior staff retire and lowering salaries of newcomers. Read all about it here.
I’m proud that fellow members of the fourth estate are doing some parking good in Philly. This town has been a hotbed of problems for years, going back to the airport scandals and continuing through “parking wars.”
We need more good reporting like this. Way to go Philly Enquirer.
