My opponent mentions her judgment. In the ‘90s, she was the lead spokesman for the stadium deal. She added $100 million in costs by moving the stadium to the west. She built a $50 million riverfront transit center that's never been used," Cranley said. "I think we need a new investment advisor in the city, and we need someone who has the experience to know the difference between good ideas and bad ideas.
This time Cranley has gone too far. How dare he criticize the stadium deal! How dare he criticize Roxanne Qualls The Stadium Queen for being the leading spokesman for the stadium tax! How dare he criticize moving the stadium west for another $70-$150 million! How dare he criticize a majestic $50 million transit center just because it's almost never used!
We all know how successful these stadiums have been for our region, and if Cranley wants to continue attacking the work of Bedinghaus/Qualls it will only hurt him in the end. If you like the stadiums, you're gonna love Mayor Roxanne Qualls.
