Move over Mother Theresa, meet Mother Linehan. Mark Linehan had the nerve to expect some sort of quid pro quo, because of his past “from the heart” and “I’m a good-guy” monetary donations, that didn’t yield the dividend he had expected?
Before Linehan replaced the open space/baseball ball fields on Storke with the $1.50 hot dog, he angled the sales pitch to a constituency hungry for a city of their own, and eventually a fat tax base to boot. I hope Mr. Linehan revisits his temper tantrum, shoves his financial pacifier between his molars, and is appreciative with his monetary achievements thus far.
The last time I checked, you don’t in good conscience penalize a city for its actions, or lack of, because of a handful of politicians. And besides, I agree with their decision. The only way the current Glen Annie–Storke northbound off-ramp bumper-to-bumper congestion could get any longer would be another discount gas station.
