Remember the mission statement of the BCPA:
Quality of Life!
The City has not provided event reports for any shows since.
Gee, I wonder why!
Maybe the 80% who don’t vote in local elections should next year, they probably won’t. Management should know by now what type of shows make money and which don’t. They don’t care.
