Thank you Council member Randy Corman for helping to clear away the veil of lies and misinformation that is confusing to Renton voters in your blog: www.randycorman.com.
Apart from the distortion of construction costs to remodel the Cedar River Library that KCLS laid out in it’s recent letter, I have a question about whether or not it is appropriate, if not illegal for KCLS to campaign as a surrogate for the ‘City Administration’ regarding the library construction costs specifically? After all, it is NOT KCLS monies that are funding the proposed remodel. OUR tax dollars are paying for the library which WE will own. KCLS will only be a lease holder/manager, for which I might add they will receive in excess of $5 million of our tax dollars to manage. Who are they campaigning for, and isn’t it correct that the City Administration is not allowed to campaign about this issue? My vote goes for the graceful and unique Cedar River Library. It will be a ‘State of the Art’ library after the remodel, which will take place when Renton voters vote for the Cedar River Library on August 7th.
Nicola Robinson, Renton
