Amateur Hour. Forever.

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

This is what happens when amateurs try to play real estate speculator.  The City’s job is to provide police and fire protection, safe water, sanitary sewer, serviceable streets.

Normally, I’d say “Stick to what you’re good at” but with the St. Paul City Council . . . .

The Saint Paul City Council are sort of like the 1980 Tampa Bay Buccaneers of politics.

  1. I think Coach McKay’s comment about his Buccaneers is appropriate to the St. Paul City Council as well.

    When asked what he thought of his team’s execution, McKay replied, “I’m in favor of it.”

  2. Apparently the lesson that the City learned is that they’d add a mentoring aspect to this program if they try it again. Unless the mentor is telling people to avoid doing business with the City because it’ll screw you over for at least a decade then it’s a waste.
    I also loved the end that talks about another loan program for job creators in poor areas. They’ll never learn.
