Dan Dalager sent out a glossy fold out mailer this week. It is full of lies.
It reads: Infrastructure Improvements
"We've also managed FEMA flood plains and improved storm drainage, which have significantly reduced flooding along Hwy 101."
I almost choked on my Halloween candy when I read that. The Leucadia flooding fix botch job, now lovingly known as the Pasco Fiasco, actually made the flooding worse. On top of letting this fiasco slide, Dalager repeatedly talks about declaring Leucadia "blighted" because of the flooding problem. You will recall at the Redevelopment workshop that when the RDA bond stooge admitted Leucadia's only "blight" was flooding Dan Dalager exclaimed "We don't want to talk about flooding tonight, that is a different subject!" (a chorus of groans came from the audience).
Now in his campaign mailer he is claiming the flooding is "significantly reduced". Talk about spin, spin, spin. The flooding is a colossal failure and city is now saying it will cost $30 million to fix. Of course, there is no funding out of the glorious $20 million bond for Leucadia flooding. Dalager says he loves that bond as much as his own family (cue Twilight Zone theme).
