A person inside The Boondoggle emailed me the link to the web version last week.
Click the link to see for yourself the web version of this slick propaganda production.
Just a couple days before the TRWD Board Election the Trinity River Vision Boondoggle sends this to voters?
How is this not some sort of election ethics campaign violation?
With so little accomplished in all the years The Boondoggle has been boondoggling why do they send out any UPDATES? Let alone quarterly updates.
How much did this piece of propaganda cost? Just the web version had to have cost a lot.
In Seattle there are currently several public works projects underway, which dwarf The Boondoggle in scope and cost. Does the Seattle Big Bertha Alaskan Way Viaduct tunnel project send out quarterly updates to the voters? Does the 520 Floating Bridge Project send out quarterly updates to the voters? Does the Seattle Link Project currently under construction send out quarterly updates to the voters?
Why would Fort Worth's infamous Boondoggle send out quarterly updates to voters when those voters have never been allowed to vote on The Boondoggle?
Unlike Fort Worth's infamous Boondoggle, the Seattle projects are well engineered, fully funded and well underway.Well, there is that hiccup with the world's biggest tunnel boring machine.
Let's look at the list of items covered in The Boondoggle's Spring Quarter Update...
- PROGRESS COMING TO GATEWAY & RIVERSIDE PARKS
- GATEWAY PARK EAST AND GATEWAY PARK WEST
- THE CONSTRUCTION ZONE
- PANTHER ISLAND ICE HAS A SUCCESSFUL SECOND SEASON
- MY CITY, MY TRINITY PHOTO EXHIBIT
- PANTHER ISLAND PAVILION 2015 EVENTS
- A FEW FUN NEW THINGS TO POINT OUT AT TRWD
- PANTHER ISLAND WINS URBAN LAND INSTITUTE'S BIG IDEA AWARD
- CLEAR FORK URBAN ANGLERS
- FUNCTIONS, FACES AND PLACES AROUND TOWN
The construction zone referred to, I assume, is the three simple little bridges being built over dry land, in slow motion, connecting the mainland to an imaginary island.
Panther Island Ice had another successful skating season. Imagine that. Important info to share with the voters.
The photo exhibit refers to that photo show The Boondoggle put on to show propaganda photos of the Trinity after being embarrassed by an Amon Carter Museum exhibit of realistic photos of the Trinity.
A listing of Panther Island Pavilion Events for the year. Yes, I can see where that needed to be sent to voters.
A few fun things to point out at TRWD? What? The restaurant business is going good? The fools they made of themselves censuring Mary Kelleher?
I blogged about the bogus-ness of that BIG IDEA AWARD back when The Boondoggle first false bragged about it in a blogging titled The TRVA Panther Island Boondoggle Wins A Boondoggle Of An Award.
How come there is no mention in The Boondoggle's Update of the world's premiere urban wakeboard park?
How come there is mention made of the ice rink, but not of the world's first drive-in movie theater of the 21st century, which is where the ice rink is located?
How come there is mention made of something called a 'modern roundabout" but no mention made of the construction project timeline of those three bridges being built in slow motion?
One more question.
If on September 9 Craig Bickley and Michele Von Luckner get elected to the TRWD Board, which would then have actual public servants in the majority, will things like wasting money on absurd propaganda productions like The Boondoggle's quarterly updates be shut down?
