I've been hearing a rumor that Circuit City sold to an Automaker. Is there any truth or credibility to this?

The old Circuit City building is actually located within Carterville's district and is not in Marion.

Carterville - Try again...

Circuit City is located within just ONE of the "pot of gold" MARION TIF Districts which feed directly back into Bob Butler's (and his pals) pockets....

Carterville.

...the property was annexed by Carterville - BUT - the "deal" is being "done" by Butler, et al.

The Circuit City property is in fact in the Marion TIF District scheme

So Marion unannexed property so that Carterville could turn around and annex it in? I have a bridge or two that I'm sure you'll be interested in buying. LMAO
You have a point

Right there at the top of your head...

Carterville went on an annexing spree a few years back - nabbing property from the County's tax rolls, all around the airport along the 13 corridor.

Perhaps you missed that?

NOTHING changes the TIF deals which are in place. Only crooked old Bob himself can make, or cause to be made, changes to the secret, secret TIF scams.

There's little doubt that a moron would purchase a bridge or two - some of us try to avoid moronic bridge buying escapades.

Call up the crooked old mayor in Marion, see if there's room in his STAR Bond for your bridges?

Who cares who annexed who! BooHoo! How many jobs are we talking about? Marion, Carterville, and everyone in between needs jobs!
Did you say jobs

Well, that is interesting.

One would think that something like the Circuit City building which Marion bent over backwards and gave away the farm to secure, in one of the magical TIF Districts - being sold - would be BIG news…?

That certainly, there would be jobs in a building which sports more than thirty acres under roof - a deal like that must somehow involve jobs…

Even if it weren't a ploy to get re-elected.

Again and again.

Because like you say, "Marion, Carterville and everyone in between needs jobs!"

What about all of the jobs coming from the STAR BOND Project? What about the continued promises of "windfalls" from the very, very many TIF Districts?

Not so many jobs after all, huh?

Nope - sorry… All of this information MUST remain tip-top secret, until all of those promises are met - and kept. First, palms must be greased and everyone on the "good side" of the politics in Marion must be accommodated.

Jobs you say? What about all of the terrific jobs which have supported so many families in the areas you indicate - since Bob Butler has been in office, making his pals rich from his secret-secret, real estate deals and scams?

Why so many secrets instead of jobs?

Maybe one of these days some of you sheep will get tired of giving up your wool, and really - really, step back and take a look in to all of Bob's little secrets?

It IS YOUR money he plays with...

But, why hurry and change anything? There's all of those pots of gold and promises of windfalls which keep you all lined up - while crooked old Bob takes another season's wool right off your backs - all-the-while, he makes a few more promises to help you understand that he's really got your best interest at heart.

Then again, so did Bernie Madoff, Kenneth Lay, Jeffrey Skilling, Andrew Fastow and all those from Arthur Anderson, who tried so hard to convince their "sheep" of greener pastures - and how much they cared for everyone who was fooled out of their wool, too.

But THAT couldn't happen in Marion… Not the HUB of the Universe…

Not Bob Butler, or say, as many as four the previous Governors of the state?!

Poor "Did".... still running around saying the sky is falling, when it comes to Butler. After all, with all of the facts and evidence in his possession, you'd think that the state and federal prosecutors would be lining up to prosecute such a scoundrel. That is, if any of it were true.

well if you watched the news last night they interviewed marion officials about circuit city selling,not carterville. So like you were told earlier, you couldn't be more wrong.

Butler lied to the public - claimed to own the pavilion - when the city did not.

You think that because the tv news writers (controlled by Butler) said it - it must be true?

You ARE a simpleton.
Uh huh
