RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I have yet to read a pro-soccer poster that does appear to understand the way urban renewal funding works. As I said, Mr. Glasgow gave a quite cogent statement of the real impact of this deal on future general funds. You were tuned out, apparently.
If Finnigan, as you claim, there are some really really smart people who do understand, they seem to be willing to avoid the subject. The rest, like you, seem disposed to keep on making the same uninformed statements.
Put in simple terms that even you might grasp: it is a fact that this deal will cost general fund dollars in future budget years. (Don't believe me? Call up Eric Johansen, the City's Debt Manager, at 503-823-6851. He'll be happy to confirm it for you.)
And PS, I don't know who this Smiley person is. If your assumption is that there's only one person in this city who doesn't agree with your childish ranting, you're wrong.
