Does Burnside stand to make any loans for any of the RCP as the local president of US Bank?
Even if he doesn't, a yes vote on this issue will get him favorable treatment down the line on projects that will benefit him. That's how government by cronyism works.
If Chesnut is against it, it means its probably good for taxpayers and bad for Chamber members.
Aron Cromwell's wife is Hannah Fritzel, Joel Fritzel's daughter... I wonder how Aron's going to vote?
Being about facts and not innuendo, I would recommend that you get yourself into the loop a little more. Not defending Cromwell, just saying that he's not married to Hannah at this particular moment in time. Okay? (It's public record.) Sheesh.
Do a little research and you'll find out who he was "dancing" with. It makes it all an interesting twist.
Doesn't it though. And, btw, who was Hannah "dancing" with before the dance you refer to? Perhaps someone who ran for national office last year?
OMG, I just innuendoed. I positively HATE when that happens.

Wow. Gingrich sure gets around.
Waving "hi" from NOT Gingrich.
Well, 2009 was 2009. 2012 was 2012. And today is today. Do you ever read the court proceedings in the Monday paper? Know how to google?
Good sense rarely trumps cronyism.
mr. schumm and mr. dever should have recused themselves, if (when) they pass this later tonight at the commission meeting will show the total lack of respect they have for the taxpayers of this community.it didn't pass the pirc, that at least means slow down and take a closer look
Odd that Dever and Schumm would serve on a committee that makes recommendation to the City Commission on which they sit. Its kinda like making a recommendation to oneself. Absurd, simply absurd.
Apparently you don't understand how the PIRC is structured. It's not Schumm and Dever...it's who gets to sit on PIRC at any given time.
What did I mention that was incorrect? Six people made the Committee's recommendation. Two of those six were essentially making recommendations to themselves. WTF does "structure" have to do with it. You are just as intellectually dishonest as the CC.
It's not absurd, it's self-dealing. Lawrence city government is just a mechanism for transferring taxpayer dollars to people like the Fritzels and Compton. If city commissioners were required to recuse themselves from voting on issues which would enrich major contributors or relatives, we wouldn't be having a lot of these problems. That, and going to a district voting system instead of an at-large system.
Yes, that seems nuts.
City commissioners shouldn't be able to be members of PIRC. But what about former commissioners or those who are running?
So I take it that Cindy Yulich abstained?
Sounds like Shannon Kimball was absent. But USD 497 doesn't cover the boundaries of this project. Interesting. Wonder what the school district in that area thinks? Wonder if the city asked them?
But, Wilby, if you ran you could have your own WILBY district!
One-Eyed Wilbur for City Commission!
The superintendent of Perry was in attendance at the meeting.
Nice to know. Were they allowed to comment?
Yes, but he declined.
The three C's control Lawrence, KS. -- Collusion, Cronyism, Corruption.
Okay, you sheep of Lawrence, listen, and then repeat twenty times:
'I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!
"I understand you're mad as hell, but I wish you'd stop shouting so often and so loud. I'd actually listen to you if you took some effort to pick your fights. But just because every issue has become in crisis in your life doesn't mean I'm obligated to respond in kind." Did I get that right? Baaaa bleat baaaa.
(posted with a smile on my face and hoping it will be received in kind).
