More Corr-Nickels disconnect

Posted by on September 16 at 16:10 PM

Just a few hours ago, Mayor Nickels commended Jan Drago for her work overseeing the monorail. (He knows it wasn’t her fault the finance plan sucks.)

This just in from Drago’s opponent, Casey Corr. Apparently he didn’t get the mayor’s press release:

“For more than a year, Council President Jan Drago ignored warnings of a Monorail debacle in the making. She ignored calls to protect taxpayers that came from the State Treasurer, the State Auditor, four former mayors and many others. She resisted calls for a vote and provided no leadership to resolve this crisis. Today, after weeks of refusing to do so, she finally agreed with me that it’s time for a vote on the Monorail’s future.”
