Jeff city council “asks the Federal Highway Administration to delay construction of a downtown bridge.”


With Clere, Grooms, Stemler and Rhoads still AWOL … or reading mash notes prepared by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce … or just engaging in the best traditions of totalitarian agitprop by blithely insisting that opposition to tolling does not exist in Southern Indiana, a Jeffersonville city councilman proves them wrong — again — by stubbornly saying aloud what the grassroots already knows.

The vote was 7-1 in favor, with only Nathan Samuel dissenting on grounds of semantics. Samuel probably shouldn’t have been seated next to Ron Grooms when both served on the Jeff council.

Jeffersonville City Council calls for delay of bridge, by David A. Mann (N and T)

However, Councilman Dennis Julius received that kind of reception Monday night when he introduced a resolution calling on the delay of the downtown portion of the Ohio River Bridges Project.
