  1. I don't get it. Doesn't anyone in the city government know how to publicize events. When the High Bridge opened on June 9 there was hardly anyone at the ceremony because they did not publicize the event which commemorates the spending of over $61 million for the redevelopment. Here, at the Stairway to Heaven we have a stairway that goes nowhere and we spent over $1.4 million. The project was completed over a year ago, and then, without proper publicity they have a ribbon cutting ceremony without letting anyone know what was going on. Thanks for the consideration for all the money that the people who are paying for all this are getting.
