Leslie Pool's Tech Duplicity....
"Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished,
But he who gathers by labor will increase."
We noticed an interesting Facebook post from Natalie Gauldin over the weekend; following the links led us to this post on the Council message board about the current budget process:

Followed by this, on Pool's office letterhead:
In other words, the same Leslie Pool who voted to unconstitutionally ban Short Term Rentals and regulate ride-sharing out of commercial viability now wants to funnel taxpayer money into some vaguely defined 'tech'-related "Public Private Partnership"...what could possibly go wrong?!?
We know this is a radical thought in certain circles, but here's a suggestion: perhaps if we left the tech industry alone when they develop helpful products that make life better, then perhaps they wouldn't need to seek handouts from the city.
Bottom Line: It would boggle the mind if it weren't business as usual.
