As much as LIUNA has frustrated me in the past I can see where Mancinelli is coming from. This deal is a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned, even if there were no guarantee of further development at all. It's time for council to take a risk and invest some money in downtown.

We're on the verge of making history here. I understand that some councilors are concerned about spending taxpayer's dollars. I'm here to say that no one is going to penalize them at the ballot box for investing some money into the Lister, but we will remember if they decide to walk away from this deal.

Putting the Lister issue to rest is not just about downtown revitalization. It also means we can start talking about something else for a change. That, to me, is worth a few hundred thousand at least!!!
