Courtesy BeFair.INFO – The current and ex-council members who want Pat Meyering silenced have accepted money from special interests and do not want to hear publicly that there could be a CONFLICT OF INTEREST for them to vote on certain issues that come before the council.

Raynor has been sold (as opposed to the originally council-approved lease) to the bidder that best meets these goals, with no regard to its impact on the neighborhood. The city has made the conscious choice to rob Peter to pay Paul.
