flapjack

I'm not 100% sure, but at face value it seems like an oversight failure. That is rooted in the commission making poor choices at some place. Where exactly, I don't know, no one is being very clear about it. I'd really like to see an educated and insightful op-ed on this situation.

Being a banker, I know the checks and balances that are supposed to be in place to mitigate construction/development risk.

I'm at a loss here. Does anyone sane have any idea WTF is really going on? Is there fraud and embezzlement? Would not put that past the "bankrupt businessman" who we all know is a corrupt snake oil salesman.

Can anyone here be trusted? County officials? City officials? Wilkerson seems to be committed to shining a light on the corruption of his cronies, but can he even be trusted at this point? The county attorney?

Does anyone look out for us? Or is this town just destined to be pillaged by the privilaged and connected few?

What a cluster.

THIS SMELL'S AS BAD WHEN PATSY SLOAN WAS MAYOR AND THE RESIDENTS GOT STUCK PAYING OFF THE CONVENTION CENTER AND ALL OF IT'S ILLEGALITIES WHICH IS STILL NOT PAID OFF. WHO THE HELL APPROVED THIS BS DEAL IN THE FIRST PLACE? THE BG CITY COMMISSION! NOW, ONCE AGAIN THE CITIZENS OF BG WILL PAY WHILE THE COMMISSION TRY'S TO FIGURE A WAY OUT OF A BAD DEAL AND STICK IT TO US!!!

That's the ticket! It worked once, let's re-issue some more bonds so more criminals can get in on the action too![wink]
