... from Carmel's mayor, of whom I'm not a fan:
Roundabouts on Keystone
The man's gone roundabout-crazy. For those of you not from 'round these parts, Keystone Avenue is a major thoroughfare- a four-lane divided highway where cars typically travel 50-60 mph. A roundabout is a road construct that replaces a stop sign, causing cars to yield but not necessarily stop. The logistics of this project will be interesting, at the very least.
Just last month, another idea of his came under scrutiny: Commissioning paintings of past Carmel mayors for $20,000, a move that critics quickly saw through as self-serving. That, on top of his decision to spend millions more dollars on a limestone facade for the already-too-expensive performing arts center, because stucco just isn't good enough. He's working on raising money for that, as well as money to put marble floors in the center, because carpet or tile doesn't have the right prestige. Can you tell I've been a little bit frustrated with our mayor's priorities?
Well, I'll be moving out of Carmel by just a couple miles in a few months- but not too soon to vote against him in the election! Not that it will matter- he won the Republican primary for mayor, and a democrat doesn't win any elections in this county, ever. Alas.
Like I said, I'm moving.
