The Streetcar is $17.4 million over budget. Vice Mayor and Finance Committee Chairman Roxanne Qualls announces that it is time to "step back" and evaluate the project and that the City Manager does not have a blank check for the project. Oh yeah, it's time for some hard questions and some critical thinking.
Then, Qualls holds a pep rally with no hard questions and no proposal to fill the $17.4 million gap. At the end of the hearing, the City Manager announces that "tomorrow" he might have a funding proposal. "Tomorrow." The day AFTER the hearing held to ask the hard questions. "Tomorrow."
That's what they think of the voters, the elected officials, the media: Suckers!
