There is little question in my mind that Ron Foxcroft is miffed because one of his own, a 'corporate success,' is not being listened to by a City Council that has, historically, been in the thrall of the business class, giving taxpayers' dollars to projects that have done little for city-building, serving only to increase the burden on already heavily-taxed property owners.

I suspect the concept of using tax dollars to help develop a far-reaching vision for the City is anathema to people like Foxcroft, whose interests seem to revolve much more narrowly around short-term profits. Therefore, and quite predictably, because he lacks argument, he resorts to invective and name-calling.

Raise the Hammer is one of the few Internet boards I've found where civilized discussion is the norm rather than the exception. Let's not allow derisive, cheap and ill-informed comments from people like Foxcroft to lower that level of discourse.
