From day one, every single city councilmember has known Harrison Square to be an unpopular project. The citizenry has watched month after month as city councilmembers have systematically disregarded and even ridiculed the public's input and discontent. We've watched an arrogant administration thumb their nose at the thought of citizen oversight and open government.
You know this project doesn't have a single measurable benchmark attached to it
You know this project won't directly create a single quality job
You know this project's financial projections are a sham
You know this project provides outrageous and unparalleled public subsidies
You know this project has been oversold and under-planned
So my question for the councilmembers is - when will you stand up and represent the interests you were elected to protect? If not you, then who? If not now, then when? Must we go down this path and watch the city council abdicate their responsibility and ignore blatant violations in state law?
No matter how you've voted in the past, it's time to do what is right...
