I doubt anyone in their right mind would vote for it or sign it if they know its Clay.

I do think it would be nice if there was some sort of announcement about the regional investment. That way people will know something bigger and better is actually coming.....

Waiting on the Chamber to focus their "transportation" initiative.

And they'll only carry four people each. WTF?


I mean I normally pretend to get the mail if I can't take the elevator by myself, so this sounds like hell.

He’s had some weird plans and some that at least made a little sense

This one is just weird. The soccer village is normally dead, why end there? And gondolas across downtown? As a way to go up a hill there was thought there as it took people up a hill no one wants to walk up. But from Barney allis plaza? Why?

And taking the tax will just end with it thrown out. It’s the sign of a lazy plan.

Is there any sort of target date/month for an announcement.
Additionally, is it looking like their plan will include regional rail?

The last time I say Clay gathering petitions he was asking people to 'sign a petition for better transportation' so lots of people signed without asking for details. I hope this one doesn't even get on the ballot.

Keep an eye out to protest while he gathers. Defense!
