I hope it's not simply smoke and mirrors.

And it all very Keynesian.

As a poster said on one of the other blogs, it sounds like a ploy to kill the idea of a downtown performing arts center so Matt Brown can get him a new performing arts center at the coliseum. Its just too odd because you think Matheny would support a bond for ta downtown performing arts center considering that downtown is in his district. Zack does have a strong relationship with the coliseum board.

Billy Jones

Robbie and the Perkinettes also stand to make a mint if the PAC goes in the coliseum complex-- they'll just have to eat a few of their own to do it. Carroll and Milton aren't the only fish in Robbie's ocean nor are they his biggest.

We already have $134,108,500 in approved (2008) bond projects that are still outstanding, which were slated to be completed "in 5 to 7 years". Four years later, the majority of big projects have not yet reached the design phase, and none of them has been completed. In fact, as I understand it, most of the bonds for these projects have not yet been sold. Many neighborhoods have been waiting patiently for the improvements that the public approved in 2008.

I would like to know by what process the council schedules the sale of these bonds, and whether the current mayor and council intend the proposed PAC and economic development bonds to cut into the queue ahead of these projects.

Billy Jones

Excellent points, Professor Wharton. And questions that should be answered before more neighborhoods are destroyed to benefit downtown.

"I would like to know by what process the council schedules the sale of these bonds, and whether the current mayor and council intend the proposed PAC and economic development bonds to cut into the queue ahead of these projects."

Stop making sense. It's not allowed when there's crony capitalism to be enacted.
