Understanding that the original deal with RochWil, the Wilmot’s shell company, was struck by Mayor Ryan many years ago, I’ve always found it interesting that the local media have steadfastly refused to demand answers from the Johnson and Duffy administrations as to what actions, if any, they took to mitigate the fact that RochWil was millions of dollars in arrears in payments to the city and getting further behind every day.
Considering that Mayor Richards was the city’s corporation counsel from 2006 -2010 perhaps this re-election season would be an appropriate time to ask Hizzoner exactly what he did to try and collect on the unpaid loans. Certainly Richards should want to clear up any suspicion that backroom deals might have resulted in millions of dollars being left unrecovered by the city.
Can anyone who was at the RPO board election meeting the other evening explain what happened to the alternative slate of candidates? None of the local media reports which I 've seen tell whether the slate was introduced and voted down or whether it was not permitted to be introduced , or whether something else happened.
