Thursday, Aug. 28, 2008 | I am not the privatizer Carl deMaio is, but I agree with him entirely about the hot-air-filled proposal to build a new City Hall when the City’s finances are so shaky and our infrastructure is such a mess.

There are certain slippery conventions in politics these days, and one of the most disgraceful is the pretext of “savings” to the taxpayers over, say, 50 years, if we voters will just be gullible enough and go along with some fantastic proposal at some fantastic cost that is touted by a discredited and termed-out City ‘Clown’-cil president. It’s no wonder the “strong mayor” is hanging back on this one.
