The news made the paper today – the CCIA is officially balking on a loan to the Levoy Theatre (as well as the Landis Theater). The CCIA has offered to sell bonds to raise the money, but officially does not want to “jeopardize the authority’s future economic stability.”
A previous conspiracy theory indicated that some thought Lou would be the hero and save the day. Some of our readers have said that is completely off-base.
The new conspiracy theory? Put your aluminum foil-hats on, ladies and gents! Lou is behind the CCIA not offering the loan. Why? Lou has a vested interest in his home town, Vineland, and does not want to see the Levoy Theatre succeed and be in competition with Vineland’s own Landis Theater. Lou, via his hand-picked board at the CCIA ensured the Levoy would not get the necessary funds to proceed in a timely manner, thus ensuring that bedfellow Bobby Romanao’s Landis Theater renovation is completed on schedule.
Bob Romano (supposedly a Republican) is already sabotaging Republican efforts in his campaign to help Lou win. It would be interesting to discover just what promises Lou made to Romano to buy his support.
