Mayor Papenfuse Issues Statement on Indictment of former Mayor Reed

Mayor Eric Papenfuse has issued the following statement regarding criminal charges filed today against former Mayor Stephen Reed: 

“Today’s developments mark another important step along the path to the City of Harrisburg’s recovery.  We, as a region, through exorbitant parking fees and sky-high trash disposal rates, continue to pay dearly for Mayor Stephen Reed’s financial misdeeds.  Any recovery, whether fiscal or political, requires at its foundation true accountability.  Now, thanks to the extraordinary efforts of the Attorney General’s office, Harrisburg residents can hope to have both justice and a measure of closure upon which to build a brighter future for all.”
