    No I didn't wonder why. It was because the city/Tirz paid millions for Evia.

    The Sullivans have what seems to be a thriving business at the port - and nobody complains. They applaud.

    It's when favors are done that people complain.

    You are impressed with the one dollar figure? Imagine how impressed you'd be to pay, that's right pay, the thousands of dollars others in that selection process wanted just to draw up a plan and look for tenants?

    We had a chance, a real chance, after the storm, to get a sympathetic Congress to agree to some significant re orientations of the facts out on the East End Flats. And those hopes were dashed.

    Every time the Sullivan family came within canon range their projects were shot down? Ever wonder why?

    East end flats is worth what? How much tax revenue or jobs does it now create?
    The cost of development is huge.. we outta pay $$$ to someone to put it in play and besides a developed property tax base would pay alot of the police budget. BEETON was in the way of progress and now just in the way. . .No vision, just a bunch of mumbo jumbo lets plant some flowers bullcrap..

    Beeton has never been a disaster, and she's certainly not arrogant.

    If it wasn't for her, the East End Flats would have been sold for one dollar. 642 acres for one dollar is a pretty good deal for the developer - and bad for the City and its residents.

    Yarbrough has been fighting against her for a long time, he wants his cronies to be served without question and she just keeps asking all those... awkward questions. Odd how he wanted the RDA restructured to silence her... yet Rosen was the one who did it. Cronyism at its finest.

    Beeton has been a disaster since she served on the ethics committee. If Beeton is elected last one off the Island turn the lights off.
