"Metro Bank today filed a nearly $52,000 mortgage foreclosure action against Harrisburg Mayor Linda D. Thompson in Dauphin County Court," reports the Patriot-News here.
"The complaint targets a property Thompson owns at 2320 N. Fifth St. in the city. It is the former headquarters of Loveship, a nonprofit agency that counseled residents on their mortgages. Thompson founded and ran the company" before she was elected mayor two years ago. The mortgage has gone unpaid since September, and the property faces a sherriff's sale
"This is a personal matter and has no bearing on the mayor’s office,” said the mayor's spokeman, Robert Philbin said. The mayor also owes delinquent school taxes.
Harrisburg has been taken over by the state because of its financial problems.
