Sears Weighs In On Balloon Tract Plan
Leo Sears, representing the Humboldt Taxpayer's League, weighs in on the Balloon Tract controversy in the Times- Standard's My Word column today. Interesting that it was published so soon after Salzman's commentary. Seems a bit quick to be in direct response to Salzman so it's likely just a coincidence.
Sears and the Taxpayer's League support the Arkley big box plan for the Balloon Tract. I tend to agree, as I alluded to earlier, if only because would be done with Security National's money as opposed to taxpayer funds. It certainly isn't likely to draw new people up here just to shop at a Home Depot, but a convention center isn't likely to draw enough people up here either. At least not enough people to pay for its multi- million dollar cost to the taxpayer.
I know it might be problematic separating what you write on your blog with what you write in the North Coast Journal but I think it's worth a shot. Heck, Dan Weintraub, of the Sacramento Bee does it. If nothing else, you could use your blog to comment on other blogs. No flaming this blog, though. That's off limits.
