No-casino group stands in the way of progress
Brady and Howlett need to step away and let progress happen. This group does nothing but create dissension and added expense to any form of progress the city tries to accomplish. They continue to believe that they should be the ones that dictate how the rest of the citizens spend their money and leisure time, where they should shop, and in general what moral code we should all live by. Forty people protested. Speaks for it itself.
Being retired myself, I can appreciate that this group looks for something to occupy their time. A majority of this group, as seen by the pictures of the main protesters and speakers, are seniors. The efforts by this council are for the long term economic viability of the city going forward. The attraction of added income that will create jobs, add funds for continuing public works, economic spin off benefits and helping to keep rising taxes to a minimum for us should be commended not condemned.
Therrien and Baldwin should consider their continuing no votes. Is it really because they buy into the No Groups arguments?
Do they think that getting their votes furthers their political ambitions at the expense of the progress and efforts to secure a better financial future for the city that will be needed with the inevitable growth this city? The number of times we have seen these two on the nay side gives credence to this suspicion.
