Much like the Third St. Bridge fiasco, cronyism and conflicts of interest again get the better of Media and have been for decades. It's business as usual here. Back in the 90’s the project was awarded by borough council to the borough engineer at the time. The firm the borough engineer represented wasn't even on the list of recommended companies that did this type of work. Strangely, they were given a NON-BID contract! The borough engineer in question was not only the chair of the Brookhaven Democrats, but gave thousands of dollars to the Media Democrats for campaigns. One year funding well over 60% of their coffers.
During the 15 years that spanned CMAQ, Brian Hall, Paul Robinson, Monica Simpson and Mayor Bob McMahon all served multiple terms on Council.
I see that a story was posted about the completion of CMAQ in today’s delcotimes.com, but also saw the author chose to state “a number of years” and not the actual years…..a big difference.
