@Ty Webb

You hit the nail on the head with one exception. This is NOT FREE MONEY. It's our money. It's tax money. There are 3 levels of governement. There is only one level of taxpayer. This is why that this issue is SO VITALLY IMPORTANT to this community.

If we do not engage ourselves as citizens and exercise our rights to make it perfectly clear to our elected representatives about how we feel and what we want done in our community, for our community, WITH OUR MONEY, then it opens the door for carpet baggers, snake oil and monorail salesmen like Bob Young, Scott Mitchell and Angelo Paletta to hijack public monies for their own profit.

Now I must make it clear. I am an avowed capitalist. I have no problem with the fact that Bob Young wants to make money. I don't even have a problem with him partnering with a public project to help him be successful. But this process has become an abomination and an outright insult to the taxpayers of this city. It has been a blatant power play and exercise in private extortion of public money.

Enough is enough.
