The Budget Task Force was ignored, so I have no idea why Tari is organizing another task force for downtown.
More interesting is who he appointed:
Justin Boyd – Tari’s campaign chairman
Tricia Stiller – head of the Downtown Business Association (DBA) that was supposed to be self-sufficient years ago. They still get subsidized by taxpayers.
Joe Haney – recipient of thousands of downtown TIF dollars
Carlos Robustelli – frequent free lunch buddy
Jamie Mathy – downtown business owner who campaigned on downtown spending
Kim Bray – New Council member who Renner and Painter recruited to run
Mike Manna – downtown business owner
Bobby Vericella – frequent free lunch buddy
Amelia Buragas – Renner’s Council pet who never says no to any spending
Who represents everybody else in the City?
Not one person!
