IT’S ON YOU, BUDDY
So poor little Shane Keating and a bunch of other councillors’ feelings are hurt because they are receiving flack for the latest waste of money called public art. They say they are not the people to complain to about this latest eyesore. Oh really? Well, I am sorry to say this, Mr. Keating, but the mayor and city council are all to blame except those who didn’t vote in this idiotic rule that 1% of all capital spending be put towards public art. So Mr. Keating and the rest of council, take your lumps because the blame lays solely on your shoulders. It is time to scrap the public art rule so taxpayers are not on the hook for any more of this garbage they refer to as art. If people want to see art, let them pay for it out of their own pockets at an art gallery. I don’t want to pay for or look at this garbage anymore.
