Did anyone get to attend the Chamber Lunch today at the Jimmy Burke Activity Center where the Riddler gave the State of the City Address? If so, how was it?

Wasn't there but a friend who was, told me Mayor Riddle open endorses Jerry Mouton for the Mayor's position. Shorty before that, Jeff Pound was seen leaving the luncheon early. I would not take that a snub of the event or the pending endorsement, but given Jeff's profession, duty called, I'm sure.

Interesting how some can use other platforms to promote their own agendas. I'm sure the crowd was just in awe over Jr.

So how is this possible since the city is still paying for the GC to the tune of about $700,000 a year?

I think the Riddler was just trying to justify his statement that he made at the Employee Banquet. He failed to mention the funds in past years that were moved from the Enterpise Fund to the General Fund to pay for it. Also, the past 16 years of expenses incurred.

They should take the issue to voters on closing the Golf Course and Restaurant since it is funded by tax dollars of 30,000 investors.
