Four days ago at NAC:
BREAKING: Padgett, Tiger, EM Cummings Veneer, et al, are suing City Hall over the Main Street dishevelment project.
… Don’t forget that it is Padgett and its toady “business as usual” trucking minions who don’t give a damn about neighborhood interests apart from despoiling them for profits. They’d run a toxic waste dump by S Ellen Jones School if they thought it would turn a profit.
Admittedly, they’re not an easy read, but here are the pages of the tort claim notice of March 23, precursor to Padgett, et al versus New Albany’s neighborhoods and independent small businesses. There’ll be more as it comes to the Green Mouse.
Strictly speaking, city officials are being sued, but let’s harbor no illusions: Padgett and friends are attacking each one of us living in the designated areas. Padgett and friends are staking claim to the supremacy of their interests over those of retail and service businesses downtown. Padgett and friends are trying to make the point that our infrastructure exists primarily for their use, with any remaining scraps and thread grudgingly ceded to the citizenry.
Plainly, Padgett and friends are attacking the sovereignty of the city of New Albany.
Already we see Jeff Gahan and his down-low bunker dwellers in full pre-emptive capitulation mode, and so the question must be asked, and not for the first time:
Who’s fighting for US?
