Notes from the campaign trail
You can bet your rear end he would have voted for the ball stadium.
As long as security around the baseball stadium is good, it will be a great place to go.
Pat you are such a fraud...You stuck us with the NASCARHall of Fame.You are no different than Mayor Foxx....Both of youused the post as Mayor to chasethe personal brass ring at the expense of the citizens of Charlotte.
@ Anonymous 6:34am - which is worse for Charlotte taxpayers? $8M for an uptown ballpark that will attract people uptown from surrounding areas to spend money; or $118M for part of the cost to install a trolley to ferry criminals from one part of destitute Charlotte to another to probably commit more crimes? Seriously though and without prejudice - one project costs relatively little and could bring in a lot; while the other costs a lot, and would cost more to maintain annually than the revenue it brings in. What would you choose?
He would not have voted for the ball stadium; the mayor can only vote to break a tie.Wasn't McCrory the mayor the last time property taxes were raised? I think he would have pitched a fit if a budget he supported was killed at the last minute. There was ample time (months) to work out a deal that a majority could support. Now they have two weeks. How bush league!
The light rail brings in less revenue than it costs to operate, too. Now that I think about it, the same applies to roads, bridges, police stations, and fire stations. All of those appear in the capital plan. Making a profit is not what our government should be about. It should be about providing public services to citizens.
McCrory's a poseur, a shallow opportunist looking for a job. Though I'm a Republican, Dalton has actually done something with his life and career. Family. Children. Sister is married to a former GOP candidate.McCrory is a career politician.
McCrory and the current Mayor have at least one thing in common, they're both shifty eyed goddamn liars that not only talk out of both sides of their mouth, they lie out of both sides of their mouth. Make that two things, neither gives a shit about Charlotte other than what it can do to further their own politcal career. Three things, now that I think about it, they're both scum.
^stay in your hillbilly area you useless homo
