Mod: Here is your assignment. Watch the "Library Survey" portion of last night's City Council meeting. It is probably the most ridiculously fraudulent thing that I have ever seen come out of Council Chambers in years. Or at least it is in my opinion.
The "Library Survey" portion of last night's City Council meeting starts at 18:15, just like it is pictured in the above screenshot. YouTube puts these things up instantly. You can watch it right now.
Two salient points that I will drop here:
1) No vote. You didn't get one. Far too hard to control I suspect. You cannot be trusted to vote in your own interest. The City Council knows so much more about what is good for you than you do.
2) The "Library Survey" postcard questions will be drawn up by the Board of Library Trustees. A group of folks that has already unanimously decided that in order to save the Library it must be bulldozed, the property beneath it sold and all of the books they claim to care so much about stashed in an athletic facility located near Heasley Field. Which, as you are probably aware, is a baseball field located next to a swimming pool.
And all at the cost of $3.9 million dollars.
You'd trust the Board of Library Trustees to author a completely unbiased postcard, right? The City Council does. And they certainly don't have any agenda, correct? Of course. After all, this is all being funded by you, so I'm sure they want to be fair.
You might not agree with me about boycotting the postcard. You might think that would allow the bad guys to win. And that is fine. You might even be right. You certainly are entitled to that opinion.
But first you have to watch the "Library Survey" portion of the City Council meeting. The video is available on YouTube and I posted the link above. You can easily scroll to 18:15 on that video and just watch the one portion of the meeting.
After you've watched the video then you can tell me I'm wrong. But you can't do that unless you have first seen it.
OK? That is all I ask.
