Terhaar responds to mayor’s plea on Y

Mr. Mayor; I appreciate all the work you have done to try and work with the YMCA. As I read Mr. Williams statement, I have to agree, the process is certainly broken. Right now the city needs leaders and not finger pointers. Instead of trying to place blame, I plan on leading the City Council to get it fixed. The leasing process for all city property, including the CMP, should be done by the Mayor and the Council. I plan on communicating that to my fellow Council members at the next Council meeting. Hopefully, when we work the process out, we can reopen negotiations with the Y and show other future investors that if you want to invest in Pensacola, we are ready.
