Notice later on in the debate how Erickson tries to blow off her involvement with the Downtown parking ramp. She mentions that Hultgren is no longer involved and Lamont properties is in charge.


When Erickson sat on the SECRET RFQ (Request for Qualifications) Committee, she picked Legacy, ran by Norm Drake and Aaron Hultgren. When she voted for the Parking Ramp, it was being developed by Legacy, Norm and Aaron (no mention of Lamont). When it was found out that Norm, Aaron and company were dragging illegal asbestos across our city and being criminally investigated, Erickson voted AGAINST the repeal.

Don’t let Christine fool you, she was all in from the beginning with Norm and Aaron, and she continues to support a private/public partnership with a company that is being sued in civil court and criminally investigated by the Feds.

There ain’t no splaining that will get you out of that.

So I have been looking at all of the candidates websites, and Nick’s is probably one of the BEST. While Nick may struggle with public speaking sometimes, if you read his campaign issues he really has a grasp on building a more progressive and transparent community.

He goes into great detail about building a greener community, transparent budgeting and communicating with the community.

No doubt Nick has a tough challenger in Erickson, but Christine’s record over the past two years has been anything but stellar. Besides the Mayor, Christine was the force behind the DT Parking Ramp and picking Legacy. She served on the RFQ committee.

It’s time for some new blood on the council and Nick would be a great addition.
