Anyone w/any sense will vote No on a $625 million bond issue tonight

Posted on June 5, 2023 at 3:41pm 0 Comments

Tonight’s big vote at the City-County Council meeting is on a $625 million bond issue to finish & run a hotel after banks passed on a golden opportunity to take the risk. There are several fine reasons why anyone w/any sense should vote against this proposal to authorize the city to 1/6

borrow up to $625 million for an 800-room, 4-star hotel on Pan Am Plaza. The Downtown Hotel Owners Association, in a letter to the Council & to Mayor Hogsett, described this as a “proposed…

Last Tuesday, during “smalltalk,” a 2-minute segment that appears on John Schmitz’s Facebook podcast “Mouthwash,” that also airs on Mondays on WHMB, Ch 40, at 9:30 pm. The topic was “hatred.” I said we should address hatred as carried out in shootings, and said majority of 1/6

Administrations, GOP & Dem, more easily order attacks when the Constitution is shoved aside. Less military use = fewer veterans, living & dead. 2) Cut the defense budget by 50%. It doesn’t take a genius to realize you…


City could tank $1 billion in "running" a hotel

Remember: June 5 at 7 p.m., the City-County Council will vote on a $625 million bond issue to finish & run a hotel after the group that started it couldn’t find a bank to take the risk. I’m not a fan of big banks. A bank that can loan high nine figures is “big.” Also, they want profits. 1/7

Loans provide profits in the interest borrowers pay. Borrowers usually pay interest when their business succeeds. If a bank declines an opportunity to invest, one may infer the risk of…
