A bungle like approving the Corliss Avenue deal can cause public support to flag. The deal never should have happened. Not only should the county probe what happened in that case, it should conduct a deeper dive into the agency to see if any other too-cozy deals have escaped scrutiny. And it should set in place reforms that ensure public trust in the land bank doesn’t get undermined again.

Is there anything these people won’t steal? Any con job that they can’t think of? Any government program they won’t exploit for their own gain?

There is no end to the corruption here.

376 properties rehabbed? Really? That’s, what a couple of blocks? There’s no saving the inner city unfortunately. Not one property at a time.
