Verterans groups… fraternal organizations… benevolent organizations… A full page ad in today’s The Mercury asks one and all to attend Tuesday’s Commission Meeting and stand up to those who want to wreck the Peace Memorial Auditorium. Interesting….
Typically, you see the conservative politicians siding with the veterans groups. On this matter, it appears the two ultra-conservative commissioners will run afoul of some of these folks. It will be spitting in the eye of these groups if a significant number of the Tea Party type suggest anyone who is in favor of preserving the auditorium is a ‘left leaning liberal’.
The conservative commissioners say, “We’ve voted on this thing three times. Award the contracts and wreck this thing!” There may have been a number of votes to move this project forward, but all the information about the plans for the Auditorium was not disseminated to the public. The two conservative commissioners voted to rescind two ordinances when they took office. The Parks & Rec project isn’t even a resolution or ordinance. Yet, they don’t want to even consider alternatives.
Could be an exciting and riotous evening at 11th & Poyntz….
