How does the city of Fredericksburg have as chairman of the Economic Development Authority an official of the Silver Cos.?
Is this not conflict of interest? How does a developer take over the whole city and call all the shots on everything that goes on in the city? For example--a 5,000-seat baseball stadium that would immensely impact the counties and residents around them and they give no consideration to them, not including them in discussions?
The Silver Cos. has given key people jobs with their company, they own the Council and get whatever zoning they want, they create gridlock and inconvenience for all who live here, have city, county, state and federal do their bidding, develop wherever they want with absolutely no one in the city objecting to anything, with the taxpayer footing the bill.
The spineless Council are water boys for the Silver Cos. It is time to disband this developer's underhanded way of ruling our community. I'm wondering if they own The Free Lance-Star as well and this letter will never be published.
And by the way, why don't they have to pay their taxes? We do.
