Re: “Memphis’ Park System Rank Improved, But Still Low

How many of the 86 cities ahead of Memphis allow cars to park in the middle of their parks on the grass? How many of the 86 other mayors ahead of Memphis' hire someone who has never worked in parks to run their parks?

Re: “Tom Lee Construction Pushed to Fall, Petition Aims for Pause on Park

How hard must the head of Memphis in May be to work with if it takes a petition begging the city to stop a visionary, multi-hundred million dollar improvement to the city? Time for this city to find new leadership for Memphis in May that plays well with others. Get your head out of the mud, Holt. Times are a changin' in Memphis.

Re: “New Group Seeks to "Save Memphis in May"

My stake is as a citizen of Memphis, I like to see progress in our city and especially our parks. This plan lifts Memphis & Memphis #1 park to a higher plain with very little pain. Plenty of drama though. Thanks for asking.

Re: “New Group Seeks to "Save Memphis in May"

Scaffold and booth vendors & Memphis in May (& everyone else who has wanted to) HAVE had their say in public commenting throughout this process! These guys, who posted an anonymous website that says: "We believe the way Memphians enjoy the Mississippi waterfront is in jeopardy" maybe should say who they are and that they have a financial interest in "Saving" Memphis in May. At best, the website had no transparency. At worst, they are putting their own financial interests for 2 weekends of the year over the interests of the whole citizenry and area. Good for them for changing their website when they looked like anonymous fools & saying they have a financial interest in keeping their jobs for 2 weekends a year.

As a corollary, the idea that Jim Holt/Memphis in May (& his massive $270,000 a year, non-profit salary that he clearly wants to protect at the expense of the rest of Memphis park-goers) hasn't had a word in the plan designs is an embarrassing display of dishonesty on Memphis in May's part as well as pure foolishness on anyone else who parrots this nonsense. The days of bullying progress for the rest of Memphis for a handful of people's financial interests are over.

Re: “New Group Seeks to "Save Memphis in May"

Nice to see that due to intense media pressure, the anonymous, citizens political action movement to save Memphis in May has outed themselves on their website as... Memphis in May scaffold and booth vendors.

Re: “New Group Seeks to "Save Memphis in May"

Lets start with who we arent. And thats a wrap. Weve run out of time, folks. Gotta go. Just some anonymous citizens proud to put our names on an anonymous, citizen-backed movement. Names tba later.
