York Dispatch investigative reporter David Weissman has been taking a close look at the York City Ice Arena, which one former city official said has had "problems from day one" and is now the subject of a criminal investigation. The York Dispatch

After reading David Weissman’s two stories (Jan. 18) of ineptitude and good old boy chicanery at the (York City Ice Arena) rink it strikes me that one name stands out like a drum major.

York City Ice Arena: 'Problems from day one'

Internal emails detail scope of York Ice Arena investigation

I wonder how one of York’s largest contractors managed to survive the leadership of the guy who admits to steamrolling the rink project. Spinning tales of promotions, ads, revenue projections, etc., only to drop the sack on the city and move to another shiny prize. Taxpayers can cover this!

No accountability or culpability — just hire a friend and continue — nothing to see here!

And the movers and shakers shuffle the chairs at the club, or stadium, or boardroom.

A cluster by any other name would smell as bad.

Or did I just misinterpret the material?
