A City ‘News Release’ is circulating with predictable spin on the General Assembly staff recommendation of ‘deauthorization’ of state grants for the downtown hotel. The news release says the City will ‘work closely’ with the Department of Legislative Services, and claims the recommendation draws attention to the “historic character of the project now in its eighth year.”
The style of the ‘News Release’ is consistent with City statements but it is not posted on the City website. We are checking on its authenticity.
FOLLOW-UP: This ‘News Release’ is a spoof. April 1 is not far off.
