Reed’s constituents are not so jazzed, though, about the surprise aspect of the city’s plan to take $3 million of the money for 18th & Vine from the only $10 million a year in sales tax revenue that voters approved for the East Side.
And why even have a board to oversee how that money’s going to be spent if the city is planning how to use it without even consulting members?
Reed called the completely justified criticism he was hearing from the advocacy group “a gross misrepresentation” of reality.
Maaaybe not the best analogy to use right nowYou just aren’t getting a clear picture, he told them. Same as when he was a kid, he had to move the TV antenna this way and that to get better reception. Then, when he could see his show at last, he’d say, “God bless Bill Cosby!”
“Because I liked that show,” he explained, when no one even smiled at his analogy.
