Ms. Beilman, very good!
Keep up the great journalism at the N-T!
Mayor Moore has had to veto the excessive soccer spending TWO times during 2015
in an attempt to stop the questionable allocation of scarce tax dollars
for the soccer boondoggle.
The actions of the city council acting as a Parks Authority have also been covered by the N-T.
The total spending by the council on the soccer complex, the yearly cost,
and the future spending and yearly costs may want to be evaluated
as well for an informational journalistic update.
The lawsuit by the city in an attempt to have the council create
a Parks Commission correctly run by the Executive Branch is pending.
The N-T might want to revisit the content of Mr. Merkley's filing and the council's tepid response.
I have to compliment both Ms. Beilman and Mr. Vanhoy of the N-T
for their indepth coverage all year long of the soccer spending.
A chronological review of the N-T's articles in relation to the soccer spending is very interesting.
It might be nifty to see the N-T run articles about that "shifting" and spending process during 2011-2015.
The public can see exactly how much has been spent on soccer to date,
what the planned spending is to be,
and how much all of this is
going to cost in total.
It would be very interesting journalism.
