FULL OF HOLES!
There will be hundreds of people who will be living in our downtown and that is something that has a significant economic impact. Just the way that council has been briefed on the economic impact of convention center attendees and what that means to small businesses, and hearing, you know, um, Zack from the bagel shop just say he’s never going to complain about convention center guests coming into the city because he knows that his business is going to do very well on those particular days.
A transcript of Mayor Sorace addressing city council in their March 9th meeting and originally published on this site here.
Who is “briefing” council members on the economic impact of the convention center? Does anyone believe it? There have been no conventions since the Covid pandemic began a year ago and the “economic benefit” will never come close to what it is costing the taxpayers! Mayor Sorace certainly learned how to lie from her predecessor, former Mayor Rick Gray! What aa absolute lie and disgrace!
