I have mentioned in previous posts , what is the county to do when a devastating storm impacts our area beaches ? It has to compete with an ill-advised convention center for dollars from the room occupancy tax. This convention center will be the delusional mayor's legacy. Even for those who are fortunate enough not to live within King Billy's city , they will have to foot the deficit due to the white elephant that sits empty a majority of the time. King Billy has hurt the pocketbooks of all county residents with his irresponsible governance. The beaches will always be a bigger draw than a convention center in a sleepy southern town that competes with larger venues. The decisionmaking of the City of Wilmington is having a negative effect on all county residents. The improvements of infrastructure should be paramount to a politician's wish list , who look to build personal monuments at the expense of taxpayers. The lastest non-transparent project is the construction of taxpayer funded ballpark. Next time the City of Wilmington cries foul over the distribution of taxpayer dollars to municipalities , remind King Billy and his Court of the negative repercussions that his personal monument has on the region.
