We could start by tallying all of the businesses on James North which are galleries, (or are thriving because of the galleries) which otherwise would be receiving vacant building tax credits.

But how do you put a value on the positive press the art "scene" has generated outside of the city, and the resulting growth of interest in our core?

As far as I'm concerned, the burden of proof is upon the casino proponents to show that their project will be an economic driver. So far there has been nothing beyond the promise of creating the same number of jobs as are being destroyed in Flamborough, and the 5 million kickback (that we already get at Flamborough).

The arts community has demonstrated their value. Now I'd like to see some real stats from DiIanni, Mercanti, and their puppets on council.
