A letter from Property Owner Ms. Della Taylor of the S. 14th Street Sinkhole Disaster Block
Instead of standing up for the struggling residents in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Mayor Papenfuse wants to engage in a battle of political ideology. A battle that he cannot win. Taking on President Trump through the Mayors Office is not a political maneuver that Harrisburg residents stand to gain anything from.
Trump, Papenfuse & Dauphin County Neglect the Seniors whose Lifetime Investments Sunk on S. 14th Street
S. 14th St Sinkhole – Ms. Della Taylors Story
Ms. Taylor became the victim of “sale under duress,” because she did not want the sale to happen, but unfortunately she was leveraged by undue influence.
Why was the City and County so eager to move forward with tax sale of Ms. Taylor’s property? The City of Harrisburg could have stopped the sale by courting Dauphin County and requesting a “stay” of the collection of taxes. This inaction of the city created the situation.
Those sinkholes that are found all throughout the city represent so much more than the tragic loss of home and property for Harrisburg citizens. They represent the loopholes in bad comprehensive plan contracts, and rigged school boards. Those holes represent the missing voids in the lives of victimized Harrisburg citizens, the broken budgets of past projects and the misappropriation of funds through creatively attained grant money.
