Took it yesterday. Thought it hilarious that "any saving from this would go twords seismic upgrades" yeah right!

Savings? Like that's going to happen. i can't wait to tour the place we will all be paying for, I wonder if OSP will spring for a H-helipad.

No need for them to read it carefully -- a more transparent push poll would be hard to create.

They have no intention of making much of the results if they don't produce the desired outcome; you'll probably need a Hubble telescope to find them, and be willing to pay real money to pry the data out of them.

Does the City really think that their consultant being an 'independent third party' makes this legit? The independent third party stands to make a boatload of money on this project...siphoning money out of our pockets into theirs. Also, their population growth forecast is ridiculous. At best the city council is completely clueless, like a con artist's mark hearing what they want to hear. At worst there's money in it for them somehow through subcontracts with relatives, etc.

This is a really expensive bond measure - nearly $300 per year for us. This in a city that won't pay pennies for better bus service. This is an expensive boondoggle. If the city council is too clueless to figure that out, perhaps the voters will let them know.
