C. R. MAYOR CORBETT'S $70 MILLION LOST SHELL GAME UNDERWAY!!
Greetings, Gazette Editorial Board and all—
Why does the evil Gazette coverup this evil $7 million shell game for Corbett and his pals??!! The Cedar Rapids LOST ballot clearly states:
For the City of Cedar Rapids:
Zero percent (0%) for Property Tax Relief;
The specific purposes for which the revenues shall otherwise be expended are: One hundred percent (100%) to pay for the costs of the maintenance, repair, construction, and reconstruction of public streets.
Corbett admits the LOST will give Cedar Rapids $18 million per year—for 10 years totaling $180 million.
Pasted in its entirety farther below, the weasel worded LOST promotion flyer from his pal Don Thomas, big poo bah for the evil Fix The Streets Committee, says:
There you have it, a few days before the election--the ballot language to spend 100% of $18 million to fix the streets is totally ignored and reduced to $11 million, 61%—which is reduced from a total of $180 million to only $111 million. Where did the $7 million and $70 million disappear to, if not into Corbett and pals slush fund to spend on whatever they want??
You have been told many times you can’t trust Corbett and his pals with $18 million—and now it is proven to you once again!!
Corbett and his pals, and the Gazette have not, and will not, show the $18 million annual increases in street fixing budgets—because it won’t happen. And now you know others know that you know it
Evil and corruption prevail in Cedar Rapids—and the Gazette is a large part of it!!
