This must be in some kind of Tea Party manual for public comments (fill in the blanks):

Jessie Ray Norton

"What this city needs is jobs.  ________________ would create jobs."

I think that if we pass the resolution to _________________, think about the jobs that its going to create"

Surely they can be a little more creative?

FWIW:  Lori Boyer actually told Stephen to behave himself. 

Luckily for Stephen, the lawyer and friends unwittingly supported his assertion that the city was being "held hostage".

Stephen's words were strong -- he pointed to a history of neglect of our historic structures by owners and by the city.  Schellenburg took offense at the "held hostage" comment, but what else is it? 

Of course, Stephen just smiled.

Do we need a "reprieve from the Governor"?    Sell the damn building!  Give others the chance to make it a viable place again

Favorite line from the evening (one of the Bostwick supporters) "What's  all the fuss?"

The owners keep saying that saving the building is not economically feasible.

I would argue that it depends entirely on your personal economics.  Read: Haskell.

I loved hearing Preston Haskell explain, in great detail, how he would fix up the building.

I arrived from work just after the last speaker and missed it all, darn it. Sounds like all the points in favor of preservation were covered.

Yes!!!  But you showed up just the same -- breathless as you ran from work.  I'm sure February's meeting will run longer.

Thanks for the live feed.  It was informative.  I also liked the dscriptions of the participants.  It added a bit of color to them.  Humanized them.  Up 'til now they were simply  names.  Stephen, good job!

It'll still be important to have a lot of people there on Feb 5th. This is precedent setting, and a large presence will be needed - if an arrangement isn't agreed upon prior to.
