Scott Laughlin did a reasonably good interview with Diana Hauman this morning about her run for mayor.
Hauman is Tari Renner. Downtown is all that matters, the roads will take decades to fix. Diana really never said what makes her a better choice, only that she’s not running against Tari – she’s running for Bloomington.
She wants “green space” downtown, maybe a dog park. She’s “envisioning” an outdoor ice skating rink. The college kids are leaving town when they graduate because Bloomington doesn’t have a downtown. People from the east side need a reason to come downtown.
Heard this before?
I’m even more convinced that Tari is dropping out. The only difference between Hauman and Renner is her plans for downtown are even bigger than his.
Diana is a nice lady, except when she walked out of the council chamber during a public comment she refused to listen to. Fistbump never got an apology from Hauman when she accused him of committing a felony for knocking on Nora Dukowitz’s door. If she stays in the race I will be printing more!
Meanwhile, if you think government creates economic activity that works – she’s your candidate. If you know government screws up more things than it gets right, she isn’t. Think Coliseum.
If the voters actually go to the polls this time, the decades of throwing money at downtown will end.
Question for the Hauman:
We constantly hear the plan to fix the roads will take a long time because you don’t want to resurface roads only to fix sewers etc later which would require re-doing the road.
If that’s the plan, roads will have potholes for decades?
You don’t have a less than permanent fix just so cars don’t break axles or bend rims on the most hole filled roads now?
If the sewer plan for a road is still 5 years away, you can’t come up with a 5 year fix?
