Mayor's Finance Director: The Convention Center Ends Justify Any Means Necessary

Wouldn't it be great if the Mayor's Office expressed this kind of urgency about keeping park community centers open on weekends or fully funding Public Works maintenance projects in the neighborhoods? I guess expanding library hours is just not as sexy as subsidizing a hotel in a depressed hotel market:
"I don't have a preconceived notion or desire one way or the other how this gets done. But it's got to be done the right way," Metro Finance Director Rich Riebeling said last week. "The hotel is critical. We're going to come up with the best plan we can."
