I had an interesting conversation yesterday with a long-time Delco pol who made a point I had not thought of. He was commenting on the election of Donald Trump, and then segued into yesterday's big news of the day in these parts, the deal that was struck to keep money flowing from Harrah's Casino in Chester to both the county and city of Chester's coffers. One of the key players in the deal was state Sen. Tom McGarrigle, R-26, of Springfield. On our editorial page today, we talk about just how important the deal with Harrah's was to the county, and even more so to the city of Chester. When you get your county tax bill next year, you will notice it's the same as last year. That would not have happened without the deal with Harrah's, which means that $4.3 million will continue to go to the county, while Chester will continue to receive $10 million, a quarter of its annual revenue. In deference to the president-elect, I guess you could call this Delco's version of The Art of the Deal. Nice work, guys.
