Re: “Feedback 7/9

This would be a great investment and at a minimum a consistent Fast Bus System or LRT/Streetcar system connecting, RIT, U of R, and downtown would have a great benefit to this community and likely would see the highest usage. Parking is expensive and limited at both rapidly growing universities, and why not have a means to connect them to downtown and use our city as a place to collaborate and innovate.

There are two different options here. The wrong option was chosen. This option called for government provided training programs. Mrs. Warren also has called for a raise in the minimum wage.

The capitalist option costs the taxpayer zero dollars and yet provides real on the job training and responsibility, and the person gets paid to learn and feel dignity. Stop messing with the entry level wages and let people at least get a start.

Re: “Feedback 7/2

Good for Feedback writer Lori Marra! She asks the correct questions regarding the overlay of a special downtown tax zone...the same questions Ann MacQuay and the residents of Grove Place asked back in the early 1990's when this proposal last came bubbling up from RDDC. Sorry but Red Shirts, et. al, are NOT a magic pill solution. Nor is a special tax overlay without very specific information. And once in, these never go away no matter how abused.
