Mayor’s Latest Brainfart

Posted July 31st, 2015 @ 8:42 AM by

This is getting embarrassing. He’s being irrational, contradictory with himself, lacks compassion and is just being mean, is coming up with silly solutions that don’t work without talking to community stakeholders and ultimately, I’d bet it won’t pass.

Judge Doyle Square Update

At least what they were willing to divulge in open session in about a half hour. I was surprised they did anything in open session, since it was noticed for closed session.

Referendum for Large City Projects

Posted July 27th, 2015 @ 8:00 AM by

The city usually borrows for projects with 10 year payback periods, but they are looking at doing some projects with 20 year payback periods. When they do that there is a different process and a chance for referendum. Wonder if they will give us that opportunity for Judge Doyle Square?

If you know someone who has been lost to violence and should be included in the mural, let people know ASAP. Thanks!

Got Downtown Property? Got ideas?

Posted July 24th, 2015 @ 8:22 AM by

Last night, county staff said on multiple occasions that they are still looking for a site for the day center. The are filing a conditional use for Martin St. (Town of Madison) and have no clue if Bellini’s would work, so they are still looking if people have ideas. Got ideas?

Parisi’s Office Sabotages New Potential Day Center Location

Posted July 23rd, 2015 @ 7:58 AM by

I was furious yesterday afternoon when I found out that the first words out of Josh Wescott’s mouth (Joe Parisi’s press guy) to the reporter was the location of the potential site. Everyone was keeping it top secret, the only reason to reveal it is to sabotage it. That’s just shitty. Way to throw people under the bus.

Heads Up! More Ordinances Coming to Address the Homeless?!

Posted July 23rd, 2015 @ 7:04 AM by

I’m wondering if they will let the advocates participate? We all know that better solutions are arrived at when opposing parties work together to come up with solutions that are acceptable to both parties. But I doubt we will be invited to the table. It would be an awesome discussion if allowed.
