Dalager schooled the Leucadia Blog last night. The candidates were asked if they thought the city needed a change to real estate practices. The Leucadia Blog had a post about crazy real estate transactions that Dalager had been involved in yesterday. We'll we thought that because the public and Barth had asked for the city council to take up the issue and they never did that nothing changed.
Blog readers informed the LB that Dalager made cosmic claims last night.
The first was the city has learned from their mistakes and they have made changes. Wow, I wonder what those changes are? Did the public get a chance to make suggestions to those changes? Did Dalager publicly, or secretly approve the changes?
The second was Dalager's take on the Mossey purchase. He said that the city came out "smelling like roses." Dan says this about many projects that are mismanaged and overpriced. If they are usable in the end. It doesn't matter the cost.
I have a really cool iPod.
My iPod works great. If I had bought it for $1,472, it would still be a great iPod. I would have paid way too much.
Our public works yard is great. We went over budget for the yard and paid way too much for the property. So, where is Dan's business sense?
Dan even said that Mossey was desperate for a buyer and was having a difficult time selling the dealership site. We should have walked away with millions left on the table. Instead we got cleaned out. We could have used that money to open the Hall park.
The city must have planted a lot of bareroot roses last fall if the public works yard smells like roses now.
At least CM James Bond was willing to fess up.
Here is what Councilmember Bond said about the purchase, “Now, I guess we’re in somewhat of a situation of buyer’s remorse.”
