Wynn` you label many things as conservative.
What, pray tell, have I labeled “conservative”? I’m simply calling out the preposterous practice nowadays of labeling everything. It’s ignorant and counterproductive.
“You tend to put a slant on the use making conservative sound negative.”
Not at all. I haven’t seen anything that could be construed as truly conservative out of ANY politician of any stripe, you included. You champion the most expensive option for P&R offices. You represent a religious PAC. For you, they are the fund from which all blessings flow. I don’t blame you for this. I just don’t think you can label yourself, like so many of these issues inherent in a growing city. It’s ignorant and counterproductive.
“Our system is subsidized at a 97% rate and that is the problem.”
Is it? If, as you say, a quarter-million for a private swim meet facility comes to only 5$ and change on the average tax bill, then this bus development can’t amount to more than a couple dollars, right? So, which is more “conservative”? Hanging a 5 dollar bump on the taxpayers or 2 dollar bump. I really look forward to this answer.
“As long as that is true I will not support it.”
I think you “will not support it” because you’ve labeled it “liberal”. From your post to Michael, you’re familiar with buses. Can you really,with a straight face, say that ridership won’t increase with availability? Can you say that buses, integrated into the school busing system, wouldn’t be a savings of possibly MORE that this amount you’re so adamant about?
“The pools are subsidized at a 23% rate; the data demonstrates the difference between the two.”
No, the different between the two is a quarter million vs. 120 thousand.
“Parks and Recreation is currently a Core Service, buses are not.”
That, in no way implies that they SHOULDN’T be.
“The Parks Office has been in a temporary garage for 30 years. “
So, of course, this justifies the most expensive option on the table.
Like I said. It depends upon what your definition of “is” is..
