Imagine, a huckster claiming to be a film producer comes to Alexandria and says "Give me $100,000 and I'll give back a million".
A gullible Mayor, Council and two public agencies write checks and wait. And wait. And wait.
Five years later they realize they've been had. No film, no million, not even the $100,000.
Someone lied to the city fathers. Ain't that a switch?
I wonder how Ms. Holly spent the 100K?
It's gone. Wave bye, bye.
Now we can focus our hopes on the success of the downtown community college and the mega-coliseum re-do.
Good luck.
Coming soon: "Wanna buy the old Murray Street bridge?"
"It's there....look close....trust me".

Amen, amen and amen!
Mayor Roy looks strange with egg on his face!

When will our city officials learn to keep city funds out of private enterprises?
President Obama has already demostrated what a disaster such deals can produce.

And if I hear Mayor Roy use the term "stakeholder" one more time, I think I will lose it.

Agreed - city funds should be kept out of private affairs but then would this really be the city of Alexandria anymore? Lol. This whole lawsuit is a sham only leading up to the next debacle and abuse of city funds. Not to mention the city's support for The Aftermath which is appropriately titled. When will we get rid of our sorry excuse for a Mayor who wants nothing more than his name in lights. Lay off the cocaine Jacques and stop hiring your unqualified friends

How many times are cityemployees/parish prisoners going to manicure Albert Street?
And I do mean "manicure"!
For the second time in about a month the crews have been out on Albert Street actually using weed-eaters cleaning the grooves between each brick in the street.
Is this for the "Cleanest City" contest"?
I sure wish these crews would come out and clean my street and edge my neutral ground!
