      Have to wait till a court says it’s ok, that Vance has had enough time to clean it up. Otherwise it will end up like when they cleaned up the theater, he will sue the city and win. That is what he is waiting for, the city to lose patience and start to do something to the rubble pile of a building, then the free dollars roll again.

    Day 79 of Vance Jorgensen’s war on Mason City. We’ll need to sue him to make him do it or he’ll sue us when we have to clean it up after it falls down the rest of the way, just like the Park 70 theatre.

        How do people seem to get confused on this? ‘Mason City’ isn’t building a hotel and ‘Mason City’ has nothing to do with its financing. A private developer is building a hotel and it is this private developer that is obtaining financing. Cities build streets, water plants, public pools, and sanitary sewers. They don’t build businesses or choose which specific businesses can build and where.

          Interesting. But didn’t the city hire the developer? Then fire the developer, Then hire the developer they are using currently, then let them go after the original developer offered to sweeten the deal and to drop legal action if hired again, then fired again, then the current developer was hired back again. Didn’t the city do all of that? Isn’t the city using city hall staff to go after the money that the state is putting up in matching funds?
          If all of that is true the city is working on building it.

          You want to stop funding the media by shutting down a 527 group? Do you even know what a 527 group is? You seem to by referring to the wiki site but I don’t think you comprehend well. 527 Group — A tax-exempt group organized under section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code to raise money for political activities. These groups are typically parties, candidates, committees or associations organized for the purpose of influencing an issue, policy, appointment or election, be it federal, state or local. Such organizations can raise unlimited funds from individuals, corporations or labor unions, but they must register with the IRS and disclose their contributions and expenditures.
          Where does it mention media? Yes, a 527 buys ads but you really think we should tell these funds where they can invest their money? That isn’t funding media either. You are still a spinner of absolute bs.

            The Media Fund is a 527 group, active in U.S. politics, which supported Democrat John Kerry’s campaign for President. It was formed in 2002, and is led by Harold M. Ickes, a former aide to President Bill Clinton. Its chief fundraiser is Ellen Malcolm, a former fundraiser for EMILY’s List. Billionaire George Soros was among the largest donors to the Fund. According to the New York Times, the Media Fund raised $45 million to run issue ads in key swing states. The Media Fund is one of several 527 groups which supported Kerry; others include America Coming Together and MoveOn.org. After the election, the group experienced a dramatic drop in fundraising success; media reports speculated that major donors had given up on the organization, and were turning their attention to other, more long-term Democratic projects.

            So, to get back to the original question. Are you proposing we eliminate the media fund, the PACs(which is what most 527’s are), the media itself, or just Liberal-leaning fundraisers? Or are you just for eliminating anyone who disagrees with you?

      There are no “historical funds for repairs” because the building is not on the National Register of Historic Places, despite Jorgensen’s attempts to mislead the public to the contrary. He wants the taxpayers to pay for his property improvements, like he always has. He’s the ultimate welfare queen.
