Once again, non-thinking “liberals” on our City Council have put their campaign contributions above common sense and the well being of the citizens they supposedly represent. Example – rejection of Wal-Mart’s bid to open a new store in Roseland.
This defies belief Their rationale for this ….translated into English, is that Wal-Mart apparently is not a union shop. So Council members’ union contributors don’t want them here. Never mind a 9%+ unemployment rate in the area. Did anyone ask the residents of Roseland if they wanted the store – and the jobs it offers? Did anyone ask City Manager Jeff Kolin about the sales tax revenue he just lost – or the people he has to lay off because of it? Never mind that people who shop at Wal-Mart, get to drive either to Rohnert Park or Windsor to do so – more gas consumption and congestion
The next target is the proposed Lowes on Santa Rosa Avenue. Let’s hope this discussion is not foreclosed by pandering and hypocrisy like the Wal-Mart one.
