Ahhhh....this is one heckuva thread and if one looks at all of the posts the conclusion is no matter how that $80 million is to be used, there will always be people objecting.

A point I'd like to make is if you gave the choice to the people, the majority would vote to use it to lower their taxes for one year. The majority of Newark residents don't post here but I can sense their "what's in it for me" thinking because that is how most Americans think.

Still, I wish the mayor and council had put the issue to the people. And in the end, the way I look at it, the mayor and council, by leveraging the money, will reap far more for the city than if they used the money to plug to the current year's budger.

That said, obviously this could have waited till after the election but there are other agenda's here too.

We can stammer and pout all we want but in the end, as long as the money is used as intended, its designnated purposes will benefit Newark. Isn't that the MOST important thing?

So basically you're saying that the ends always justify the means.

Here's something innovative: not breaking the law.

Well, if Ras wins, he'll have a say in this won't he? That's the point of having a guy on the council like Ras, a known fighter of the establishment. Except this time, he appears to have caved to Sharpe and his cronies. Maye he can make up for it by being a pain in Cory's proverbial behind.
