A letter I received yesterday from Mr. Anthony Mingarelli.
"I, like you, am a member of the Independent Party and am looking forward to making it a more progressive party. We, the Independents in the City of Lackawanna are being misinformed.
A few weeks ago an article in the...
The Lackawanna City Council on Friday unanimously approved a $20.98 million budget for 2007-08.
The budget carries a homestead tax rate of $11.58 per $1,000 of assessed valuation — down 66 cents from the current rate, and a nonhomestead rate of $33.48, down $1.35.
Maybe someone can enlighten me on the expertise or credentials of the fine city council of lackawanna. I am not sure what each one of these individuals has as a career or as an education?

Just a few observations and predictions for the upcomming year and maybe a couple years ahead.
The same old "politics as usual" will continue in the City of Lackawanna. The backroom games will still be played. Let me site some examples:
FIRST The First and Second Wards will continue to...
Democratic Chairman Eagan as we all know has well known ties to the city of lackawanna, along with using lackawanna politics in the town of boston. Just for giggles, check out the City of Lackawanna forum. Pretty interesting, especially the post about the code officer being bought and paid for....
Ok, I've heard that former Democratic Party Chairman Vincent Sorrentino of Hamburg is going to be appointed Counsel for the Lackawanna Municipal Housing Authority.
I know there is at least one lawyer in Lackawanna who could do the job, because my mother's will was drawn up by one.
The City of Lackawanna population exceeded 30,000 people at one time, and Bethlehem Steel employed 20,000 at the Lackawanna plant.
Today, the population is about 19,000, and no longer listed in the federal demographics data site because they do not list cities under 25,000 people. Obviously the...
And why does he seem to have so much control over Lackawanna politics?
Sooo...Another example of corrupt politics in Lackawanna. Mayor Polanski was caught on tape recorder making an illegal deal for votes by promising to keep the job of a public works employee. So not like this will casue a public outcry cause everyone is in the pockets of the democratic party but...
Sqandered in what way? Pet programs where his "connected" friends benefit from the aid?
With the comming of the windmills on the Brownfeilds of Bethlehem Steel land, I think the city sold itself short only recieving $100,000 a year for the project. With the city on the brink of a fiscal crisis much like Buffalo and the County one would think that this project might be the perfect...
With the Democratic registered voters of Lackawanna numbering an 8:1 margin over the Republicans will there ever again be an elected Republican to city government.

Will Lackawanna ever be free of the mandatory "community participation" in FEMA's flood insurance program?

Next Tuesday (May 19 2009) it is time to vote on the Budget for the Lackawanna School System. In principal and as a senior citizen I always vote no on the school budget. After looking at my property taxes and my school tax I think I'm justified in voting no.
Just wondering if Mr. Juda has any connection to anyone in Lackawanna?
This position was created by Democratic Chairman Town Supervisor William Eagan when he took control of the town board.
