Question of trust on Brainerd plan

hello

I attended the Brainerd informational meeting held on Feb. 11, and asked Mayor Weppler if the "Savebrainerd.org" sign was a violation of the internal revenue code's prohibition against political campaigning by a section 501(c)(3) organization. He said that he believed it was a violation and had already asked the organization to take down the sign.

It should have taken about five minutes to take down the sign. Yet, almost a week later, the sign still remained.

As a taxpayer, I am being asked to provide money to build an $11.5 million palace (really $14.9 million with interest), and the group that will have control cannot even play fair and take down a sign? What happens when they can't manage the building?

I have no trust in this initiative or the organization behind it. Vote no.
