Let's break it down for you.
You said, " he can't do anything because it's private property".
So why do you blame him and the Hamilton woman for not developing that area? I mean shouldn't he be able to orchestrate something? The answer to that question is, only as much as the law allows and it allows him and his team to create incentives such as TIF districts and Enterprise Zones. (which you state he's doing)
"pushing it off so they can spend all of my tax payer money on something I donít even want so alcoholics can kill someone or even worst a child when they attend a post wedding reception or concert at the mayors new concert venue."
Now this line really shows your lack of knowledge for the topic. Sure you don't want to quit while you're ahead? Wait, you're not ahead.
Okay addressing "your" tax money. The money being used downtown, according to city minutes is from the downtown TIF. You know where downtown TIF money can be spent. I know you do.
Your last line in that paragraph is beyond ridiculous.
So, Granite City shouldn't have a banquet center because someone might get drunk at a reception and cause a wreck? And downtown Granite City shouldn't have a couple of nice upscale bars where people can go, listen to music and have a drink just because Gary62040 doesn't want it?
Could that not happen if someone in Edwardsville has one too many drinks at the Chop House or the Wildey or any other gathering place in Edwardsville? And those places you mention in Edwardsville serve drinks, so I guess you'll stop going there?
Read your post before hitting "Post". This last one would get your client hung in court. But then again, you probably went to FB law school too. LOL. Have a great weekend.
P.S. If memory serves, you didn't like Hagnauer and thought he didn't do his job. The people seem to like what Parkinson is doing and you still gripe. I sincerely think you should run the next time there's an election so you can fix all the things these two guys didn't.
