Again, butchering the facts there William. The group David Niles is apart of came up with a competing operating model that would be run as a member co-op. It would be run with no tax dollars. Elings rejected it because Elings doesn't want to maintain the Las Positas courts. Instead they want to convert them into a country club/academy. No one is asking for “entitlements”. Let me ask you William, did your course fees pay for that $1.38 million storm water project that runs through Muni? No, that came from tax dollars. So imagine if the City said they wouldn't pay for that project. And instead the City would give over Muni to an organization that would fundraise for the $1.38 million project and as a result would allow for Muni to be turned into a private club where they could charge whatever they liked for green fees. I imagine that wouldn't sit well with you.

Get your facts straight William. The restrooms were never shut down for being a “public safety hazard.” Work was done to repair plumbing to lines and replace a urinal but that's it. And players such as David Niles encompassed the 150 annual permit holders who paid to use the facility. Now all those permit holders are gone and in their place is a tennis school by some wheeler-dealer that bills itself an elite international training academy. They have no incentive to serve the public. Because in the end that is all Danny Vickers cares about: prying more money out of their rich donors.

Elings were handed the best place in SB for tennis and turned it into a ghost town. Danny Vickers somehow thinks hundreds of new tennis players are going to magically appear in this town and want to pay the highest membership fee for a "public" tennis court in the US.
