I was pleased to find myself quoted today in a Central Penn Business Journal supplement focusing on the opening of the Lancaster County Convention Center.

The increasing hustle and bustle of Lancaster’s arts and music scene is what led Ken Mueller to move to the city recently from Elizabethtown. It’s nice to live in a place where such a variety of people—from government officials to artists to business owners—share the same committment to the city, Mueller says.

“In Lancaster, there’s a real pride where everyone wants to do what is best for the city,” he says. “I think people coming into the city will be pleasantly surprised about what they find here.”

One such person is Daniel Klotz, who moved with his wife to Lancaster three years ago after living in New York City. The transition was easy for the couple, Klotz says, because Lancaster offers all the amenities of a big city without the cost and lengthy commutes.

Klotz believers there is a critical mass of talent and investment in Lancaster and that the good things going on in the city will only continue to grow.

“It’s all starting to come together,” he says. “I think there’s an opportunity for something really big to happen here.”

Thanks to Christina Reardon for writing this story, and for the opportunity to appear in it.
