Why can't the Alexandria City Council stop giving away tax payers' money?
If "so and so" wants to start a business, then start it with their own money.
This reminds me of President Obama's giving money to Solyndra. That company went bust and cost the tax payers about $500 million dollars.
I wonder if some Joe Average had asked the City Council for $50,000, would the Council have been so generous? Probably not. But Faith Ford asks and receives. Let Ms Ford use her own money.

This stupid film school is Jacques idea. The Council approved what the Jacques wants once again. If I was Faith Ford and Jacques wanted to give me free money I would take it as well.
