Hotel boosters disparage critics

The hotel boosters go to extraordinary lengths to whitewash this boondoggle. Here we have the project’s archeologist  paid jointly by Plamondon and City taxpayers getting into a verbal brawl in social media, then falsely claiming he got her fired… all over possible environmental issues which are not even her specialty. Meanwhile the County is getting suckered into funding the project with a financing scheme worthy of Chicago under which the tourism council will administer a system of ‘hotel tax rebates’. Yes you read that right: the County proposes to delegate to the Tourism Council, a business group, the power to do favors by way of rebating taxes on favored hotel projects. They are scheduled to vote Tuesday afternoon. P Samuel  FNP comment posting 2016.08.28
