What a joke

I see despite overwhelming opposition, letters to the editor, rallies and lawsuits that council approved the deal with Trio Marine and gave them their 29-year lease.

They are also going to forgive the outstanding $36,000 in unpaid rent and compensate them $40,000 for the loss of the waterslides.

Are you kidding me? Why are mayor and council bending over so far backwards to accommodate Trio Marine? Something really, really stinks here.

I have only two things to say in response. The first is directed at mayor and council. Don’t even bother putting your name in the hat in 2018, because you have effectively just committed political suicide. The second thing I want to say is as far as I am concerned, this whole deal is so dirty, I could write a commercial for Tide.
