This isn’t news to those in the know- but, it’s something the Dayton Daily News won’t dare dig into. Austin Road Interchange is just one more key to destabilizing what is left of our urban core in Dayton. Ever wonder how a little interchange becomes a BIG INTERCHANGE? Take a look at what Jeffrey over at Daytonology has revealed through good research:
Daytonology: Mike Turner and the Real Estate/Development Interests
Mike Turner has received significant contributions from a cluster of donors best described as the real estate/development special interest community. This includes PAC and individual donors from real estate, contracting, construction, engineering and architecture, and building trades unions.
In fact some of the largest individual contributors are associated with this special interest donor base.
My campaign treasurer, Mike Robinette, was head of the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission before his retirement before the hatchet fell. He was opposed to the Austin Road Interchange boondoggle, and was being targeted for asking the right questions. Unfortunately, the developers and construction community are counting on our tax dollars supporting their incomes for the next 10 years and beyond through this overpriced, unnecessary project.
Read Jeffrey’s whole post- and you will better understand why I feel so committed to running for Turners seat. Enough is enough already. It’s time to return our government to the people, instead of the campaign donors.
