Lenny Curry pushed back
I don’t want to call the mayor a liar but at this point he has attempted to deceive the public dozens of times about the referendum, saying the district hasn’t answered questions,provided information or included the community and they have done all three.
It’s my bet he was embarrassed that Hershey wanted to include the board in any decision making process, you know, do her job, unlike Curry who planned to just tell the council what to do, because that’s what Curry does, he pulls the strings of the council. The thing is he has strings too and they are being pulled by his rich donors to the detriment of the city.
Notice he mentions commitments to charters, um the board over and over again, to my chagrin, has spoken of their commitment to charters. Curry’s problem is they have also spoken of commitments to be good stewards of the public’s money making sure it is spent on public property, something Curry and his donors don’t want because it takes money out of their pockets.
Curry is not fighting for the best interests of the city, he is fighting for the interests of a handful of rich donors and it is shameful.
