Tuesday, July 2nd is a day that could live in infamy. That is for the Glendale city council. Jerry Weiers and Norma Alvarez make the city look like a joke. They keep talking about services, gangs, libraries, and non-sense. If they want to get re-elected they have a tricky way of showing it. If they have some serious Canadian dollars enter their bank accounts it would make more sense. They hide behind talking points. Then when all objections are overcome they play ignorant. Go into the we need more time to fully understand the particulars of this deal. They had YEARS to figure stuff out. Through trial and mostly error they should no every pitfall many moves ahead of time. Be happy anyone wants to buy the team. You wanted the team and built an arena to steal them from the East valley.
As a poker player the thought of going All-In then folding your hand without seeing the river is the stupidest idea ever. That’s the kind of business Glendale does. For every true visionary like Joyce Clark and Manny Martinez you have the Norma and Jerry. Heck even Scruggs balked at 3 first responders going from full time to part time. I have no idea why that’s where they decided to cut. Loved the sell city hall and lease it back idea. That is the kind of thinking that gets you out of a rut. Glendale has no choice but to accept the deal with R.S.E. and get the process of rebounding underway. The economy is on it’s way back. Housing has gone from a foreclosure wasteland to an improving market. Many who purchased homes during the rebound are Canadians.
Canadians are some of our biggest winter visitors. When home prices plummeted, many family took a first or second home in the West Valley. As you know Canadians LOVE hockey.
