Naturally, it’s Metro Parks
I think that instead of demonizing Roy Wilson for the Metro Parks budget overrun we should recognize the fact that under his direction our parks system have improved immensely and is providing the citizens of Metropolitan Nashville and our visitors with pleasure, beauty and services never before seen.
The $704,000 budget overrun pales in comparison to the mega millions of taxpayer dollars that are force-fed to Bud Adams, Gaylord and many diverse developers for useless unneeded and unwanted tax exempt projects such as the new convention center without any return for the people, such as we are receiving from the city parks, and which usually end up costing us eternally for maintenance of these follies.
I, for one, thank Mr. Wilson for his foresight and leadership in making our city beautiful and providing needed service to the communities. I had rather see my money spent there than with some of our governments favorite profiteers.
I had rather see our parks remain a top priority over some of the junk projects that are heaped on us cost overrun or not.
