I think you are pushing the realm of truth calling Mayor Futch "well respected." I have watched his childish, paranoid rants against the Cape Fear Skyway and the city of Wilmington for months now. It seems to me that Mayor Futch cannot comprehend the positive economic impact the bridge would have on Leland and how those who dole our state funds for future projects might view him as an obstacle and look elsewhere for projects thus depriving the region of jobs and income. I have no respect for this man, nor do I know many on this side fo the river who do.
