She said "The state of the city is not good"

"We wasted $80K taxpayer dollars on a tax attempt we were duped into believing would pass by 60%"

"We have not hired an economic director"

"We have no real development on the horizon"

"And we misplaced 4 million dollars causing us to cease Palmetto main street plans and other projects"

"But one of our top priorities is still to build a 30M library that 90% of people are against."

Is this why council doesn't like Fix?

251 That and the general hooliganism
that pops up now and then. And we're all so unruly. And the lack of awe--that's a big one.

If you've heard one State of the City report in Pacifica, you've heard them all.

Council doesn't want to hear the truth. That's why they go to Riptide. At least Maybury will censor some of the comments so he can attract the politicians.

This city only wants transparency when it's serving there goal. Like all the secrecy around the new library.

Call it serendipity do, but isn't our new CM a library buildin' wizard? Knows how to creatively fund, build public demand, overcome opposition, bag cross-species endorsements and use magic words on the bond ballot measure. Oh, I love me some magic words. Most important of all, the CM knows how to present complex info to the public. And isn't she our hero? Who wouldn't listen?

Is there a surprise coming our way? Something so tantalizing it's hard to refuse. Yes, Pacifica, you, too, can have something new and shiny that will make you feel so good about yourself--and you deserve it! Just sign here.

IMHO the recent cut to library hours was less about saving a paltry $75K and all about building demand for one central library that would get all the hours that were spread over two. It'll make a nice selling point.
