Dear fellow tax hikers, TGIF because this week can't get much worse. First we were completely shocked that John Cranley and 7 incoming Councilmen were able to kill the parking deal that we loved so much. This plan would have taken future parking profits and spent them now, making it more likely that we would see a future tax increase to replace those lost annual revenues. Our chances of getting a future tax increase have been reduced because of this terrible move to stop the parking plan.
Then we find out that our awesome City Manager Milton Dohoney has been forced out. He did not deserve this. Milton was the guy who came up with the streetcar, parking plan, trash tax, Red Light cameras, and Water Works sale. Whenever we needed more taxes, more spending, or more streetcars, Milton always came through.
Worst of all, Crowbar Cranley still wants to stop our streetcar! But we're not going to let him. Did you know that 300 Qualls supporters came to a meeting tonight? At this meeting, we came up with an unbeatable plan to save our streetcar. Here it is:
Nothing is going to stand in our way. After we engage residents and businesses, lobby people, and threaten to file lawsuits, Cranley and Council will have no choice to but to abide by our demands. The streetcar shall be saved!
