Have you seen this? 


It's a PR video about the South of 50 project, some say poorly made, talking about how the people voted on it and no taxpayer dollars, and no North of 50 water will be used. 


Regardless of the veracity of the claims, no one is claiming ownership of it! From the developers, Chamber of Commerce, and BizPac. All are denying it. 


Some think it's a ploy by some politician or other opponent to get the anti-development crowd riled up, some think it's the development crowd trying to put a positive spin on a controversial subject. 


What do you think?

I am afraid to say what I think, but it felt like propaganda, full of stock photos rather than actual citizens.  it seemed to be closely coordinated with a telephone survey yesterday night with pointed questions.  Whoever put it all together spent a lot of money, so I doubt it was done to just rile up people opposed to development.  What good would that do?  I think its part of an effort to gather information for the upcoming election in order to keep city council builder-friendly and make sure everything goes smoothly south of 50.  its disconcerting to me that no one will admit they paid for it.  Russians maybe?  ;)  

Knowing the past helps deciphering the future.
