COST OVERRUNS for the REDSKIN deal? AMAZING! I TOLD YOU SO…VOTE NO on PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS!

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that City Council is questioning a $800,000 cost overrun on the Redskins deal!

The price tag for the Washington Redskins training camp and attached park area has pushed about $800,000 past the original $10 million appropriation from Richmond, prompting questions from City Council members over whether the Richmond Economic Development Authority, which is building the facility, has the authority to approve the extra spending.

I knew it was going to happen.  I blogged on this; so I must say:  I told you so.  Now if I ever run for supervisor, check me for a fever but one thing for sure:  NO sweetheart deals for private entities on my watch absent ironclad assurances (such as special taxes or collateral or special fees or mortgages) that the taxpayer will not be screwed.  No calls from governors or mayors or civic leaders will change my mind.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
