Bowman Lies About Jim Adams’s Attendance At Blue Line Meetings

Angry Bird/Sour Grapes Mayoral candidate ReNae Bowman is at it lying yet again; this time in a comment in the Sun Post:

Bowman: Most important is that citizens should look at Mayor’s Adams attendance record at the Blue Line’s core committee meetings. These were the meetings where the needs and design desires of the community were discussed with project leadership. It is difficult to communicate those needs if one does not show up. The current mayor and the council liaison to this committee attended only half of these meetings. Crystal residents were never properly represented at these meetings. If this council feels it was ignored, they themselves should try showing up and participating in the process or at the least be transparent enough to tell us why they are not attending. I believe the attendance records are a matter of public record.

Yes Ms. Bowman, they are! They are right HERE

There are 19 meetings that have minutes we can access and Mayor Adams has attended 13 of the 19 meetings which is better attendance than most people on that committee. The former Mayor either can’t count or she’s relying nobody to do any fact checking.

Sorry Ms. Bowman, you won’t get away with your lies here….

    Light rail will not improve our life in any way. It is an overall drain of society. It is very expensive, slow, inconvenient mode of transportation that belongs in the 19th century not the 21st. Isn’t it time we stopped building infrastructure that is expensive to build, maintain and operate at taxpayer expense?

    Sadly, the series of false choices given for Municipal Consent were three different ways to agree to a project on track to become a multi-BILLION dollar drain on taxpayer budgets. Taking a No Action vote made the point that the Council refused to accept the premise of the project due to its specific disruptions in the City of Crystal. . It seems logical that anyone sitting through these presentations would question why our elected officials would give consent when the project is only at 15% of design, over budget without any safety enhancements and has extremely negative effects on local residents.
    There were numerous suggestions made to make this project more palatable, starting with not building the transit station on the busiest corner in Crystal. Many of us who regularly attended meetings pointed out the neighborhood disruption that will result. The increased noise and light pollution in those neighborhoods. It will require pedestrians, many of whom are senior citizens and mothers with small children to cross 6 lanes of traffic and 3 lines of track. Many of whom bought their homes in quiet neighborhoods with room for children to play. They certainly didn’t expect to deal with trains running 14 hours a day which includes 61/2 hours of them passing every 10 minutes or less.
