Statement from the Historic Harrisburg Association Board of Directors:
In late July, irregularities were detected in the bank account for Lighten Up Harrisburg, a program established to raise funds to replace broken lights throughout the city. The matter was referred to appropriate authorities for further review and investigation.
We were shocked to discover the irregularities and are saddened by the alleged actions of our former executive director as outlined today by the District Attorney. We will seek full restitution of the missing funds. We are committed to ensuring that every dollar given to LUH will be used for its intended purpose. Finally, we will do all we can to further sustain the trust and confidence that the Harrisburg community has placed in HHA over the past 40 years.
