Now is the time to follow through with a complete dismantling of the city council , who continue to defy the wishes of the taxpayers and are not concerned about their economic welfare. Pro baseball franchises are ALWAYS shopping around for municipalities who are willing to put their citizens on the hook to subsidize their playgrounds. So Bill Saffo to suggest that pro baseball in Wilmington is a once in a lifetime opportunity is a folly. Saffo has zero credibility in this community and is in office primarily for his own self-interest. A poor economy , defiance and the " Downtown Dinosaur" ( convention center ) were the primary factors that led to a sound defeat. The city council , city staff and the Chamber of Commerce need to heed this warning if you have any desire of holding political office, being employed as a city employee ( i.e city manager and asst. city manager ) or being an honest broker in the promotion of the business community. Locally, we are one of the more economically depressed areas of the state , therefore YOUR priorities need to be seriously reassessed.
