    ideas as trial balloons to see how many people object and how many people tune out and don't care.

    •  That's good, at least (0+ / 0-)

      Are you aware of any opportunities for ex-residents to chime in and try to attach some lead to those balloons?

        rep are a good first step.  Simply ask what they hope to accomplish by selling off the few viable assets that the city still has.  i.e. How does decreasing their future income increase their future viability?  Point out that they simply look like vultures and thugs kicking people that are down.

        If you are local, you can ask your state rep what this does for YOU considering 'the tax savings' are generally given to someone else and at-best YOU are expected to go to the person who received the money and grovel for a "job".

          Sounds like a plan and the least I can do for all the hours of pleasure that place has given me over the years.
