Our thanks to elchuqueno.com for pointing out what one of our city representatives said at a recent city council meeting.
From their blog post:
Niland lashed out at the Railroad during the City Council meeting.
“But you ask yourself why in the world would they be telling the media not the truth? I can’t imagine. Is it because they want to force us back over here to have a conversation with them? So we will be forced to negotiate with them and shut down closures in our own districts that we all know none of our neighborhoods wants to happen? Did that maybe dawn on anyone? Because that it what’s happening,” Niland said.
Where was this city representative when the city agreed to close eight railroad crossings as part of the deal when the city needed a sliver of land for the ball park?
Train wreck was an April 2013 post about the deal between the city and the railroad.
How can we avoid concluding that this city representative thought it was ok to close eight popular railroad crossings and tear down city hall when she wanted land for the ball park but that closing more crossings does not make sense when she can have citizens evicted from their homes instead?
We deserve better
