Description

"'Cashtown Road' exposes and powerful politician using his position as a member of the State Transportation Board to influence and profit from state road projects. The I-Team found that veteran board member Max Goldin voted to widen a two-lane country road called Cashtown Road. The vote went unnoticed because it was buried in a statewide road building plan that included more than 70,000 miles of new roads. But our investigation uncovered how the board member failed to disclose that he and his family own more than 150 acres along the road and stood to reap a financial windfall from the improvement."
