In face of funding failure, Flynn offers pathetic mea culpa

Kevin Flynn spent fifteen minutes with Willie Cunningham on 700 WLW last week explaining that he only violated his promise to voters to stop the Streetcar because some unnamed people mislead him. He was bamboozled by the empty promises made to him by people who promised him the operations funding ($4-$5 Million per year) were on the way.

Flynn had a simple choice: live up to his promise to the voters who entrusted him with public office; or betray the trust he had so recently gained. Sadly, he chose the latter.

Flynn's sad attempt to justify his decision by blaming others for misleading him is simply disingenuous. COAST and many others warned that the promises of future funding were hollow (see here), Flynn chose to disregard that wisdom born from experience, and now the people of Cincinnati will suffer for his decision.

Listen for yourself.
