City held hostage for 542 days

The Community Maritime Park construction will generate 1,500 jobs. The estimated weekly payroll is between $1 and $1.5 million per week – money that would be circulating through our community.

We didn’t elect the CMPA board to lead this city. We elected the city council. Other cities with similar referendums will have their parks finished this April.

BTW: 542 days equals 1 year, 5 months, 24 days or

* 780,480 minutes
* 13,008 hours

Tick, tick, tick….
