Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore – we are in the fantasy world of Sioux Falls

A letter writer asks the city to disclose the full costs of building a new Events Center . . . . bahahahahahahahahw!

What many do object to, though, is the past practice of the city lowballing the cost estimates of such projects in order to gain civic approval. In particular, this time the city must be upfront with the taxpayers about the full cost of a new center, including the planning, financing and bonding costs and interest on borrowing.

Chet, I don’t want you to think I am insulting your intelligence, just your ignorance, by saying this; in order for the city to ‘sell’ this project to us, they must lie, they lied about the Pavilion (told us $21 million, we are at $40 million and counting).

1) They are bad managers of money

2) There solution to every problem is raising taxes

3) They know they must mislead as much as possible to sell us the Event Center

I think the Event Center is a good idea, but I disagree with almost every thing they are doing to get it built. Not only is the planning and cost estimates skewed, their funding solution (raising general retail taxes) is a horseshit way to pay for this thing.

It seems dishonesty in politics is the norm these days – and you can expect it when selling us the Event Center.

The irony of this goes back to that old saying, “Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” I sometimes wonder if anyone at city hall knows what that means?
