Convention center

Um, so you want to cut the convention center which is not being at all funded by property taxes and is the largest construction project in the entire region putting hundreds of people to work? That sounds smart. And any of the workers who don't already live in the area are spending money here while they are working here. Unfortunately, even if the project is stopped, it will have no effect on the city's budget since the funds to build it and run it are coming entirely from the 3% room occupancy tax. And that money was earmarked by the state to ONLY be used for the convention center, so it can't go to fund anything else.
