One thought on “Bainbridge Island’s stimulus wishlist

  1. Interesting list, maybe a little more in line with the known voter priorities. Should we receive the monies the Mayor is responsible to Obama for not wasting the monies. He put out a statement to this affect on Friday. Does he have any idea of the mis-spending and wastes we have witnessed on this Island by this MAYOR? Wondering if he could give the same direction as regards the local, county, and State tax dollars she manages? And then again, giving direction to our MAYOR is like talking to a rock!
