I agree with your response as well. As i said in a previous reply, Rudy Goddard who was DCED director at the time allowed this deal to go through because his son was one of the partners at the time. As a matter of fact, if you get a list of all of the people that received loans at this time you will see that most of the loans were to friends and family. There were a number of loans that were given during this time that had gone 12-18 months without paying anything. June Bug plaza was one of them.
If the Herald would go back and do their research, they would see that the original deal from the beginning was aimed to cost the city. Rudy Goddard who was at the helm of the DCED at the time allowed the city to enther into an agreement with his son being one of the partners. Check the records!!
Is it possible for you to tell me what you do to make a difference besides try to find the negative in everything?
Citizen 1, thank you for the comment. I usually don't respond to comments like this but I must. It is always easy to hide behind emails as you do. My question to you is "what are you doing to help?" As for me and the congregation, we are always involved in making a difference. We started a GED program at the church in 2010, tutoring for students, scholarship program for students and the list goes on. I am at just about every school board meeting and I am also in the schools 5 days a week talking to kids and adminstrators trying to make a difference. Now tell me what do you do?
Sir bubba, stop hiding behind emails and make yourself known. Thats what REAL men and women do.
The Macon Miracle is a step in the right direction. Any plan is better than no plan at all. That system had a failing plan before he got there. To take it a step further, Rochester Minnesota's district was in far better shape when he left than when he got there. Anytime you have someone that comes in and shakes up the system you will always have some people like yourself that doesnt agree. If it was so much of a sham, why was it unanimously voted for?
