In my last letter to you about this subject, I made it my specific purpose to be polite. I told you that the mayor, the commissioners and LaRon Bennett needed a reality check.

This time, I am going to be more blunt and to the point: They need a sanity check. This project is insane. If they were using their own money, not a single one of them would vote for this project.

LaRon Bennett’s response is laughable. You conducted a countywide survey to obtain taxpayer opinions about this. The resounding response was no. As my favorite country-and-western musicians would put it: Mayor Harvey and commissioners, what part of no don’t you understand?
