Wow The City Manager is spending more on consultants!! Shocker!!! Someone should ask to tabulate the total expenditure on consultants since this "Leader from Behind" has taken over.

Shameful that our money is being wasted because The City Manager won't make any decisions in his job.

Since the Lanza/Fry group is only saying too much traffic, without any specifics about how their proposal will save, the burden of determining that falls to the City.

They will need this information to decide on their response to the initiative.

With regard to the FPPC complaint, if they are just support this initiative (70% of $ raised) then they ARE a single purpose committee. If they are planning on spending all that money on candidates, Did they tell their donors who they were supporting?
