DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OHIO, IN A WELCOMING MOOD: WELCOME REPUBLICANS & JIMMY DIMORA PUBLIC SQUARE BEFORE START OF RNC 2016!

 
WELCOME REPUBLICANS, JULY 18-21, 2016!

 


WELCOME JIMMY DIMORA PUBLIC SQUARE -- A $50 MILLION PROJECT -- A PRODUCT OF CLEVELAND'S CORRUPT SYSTEM!




Photographed during a 2.5-hour demonstration in downtown on a hot afternoon and evening of Friday, July 15, 2016.
 


The recently completed Public Square has been nicknamed the Jimmy Dimora Public Square because of corruption involved in the process.


It was a bogus project – a product of Cleveland’s corrupt system.


Cash strapped GCRTA (Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority) that is cutting down service and raising fares is subsidizing the project which will benefit the rich and powerful property owners in downtown Cleveland with a rise in property values while the rest of us will get screwed.
 
With billions invested in downtown, after 2001, the poverty rate in Cleveland increased from 31 to 38%.
 
According to the Traffic Consultant’s report of 2012 as posted on cleveland.com – the 16-month construction of the project cost the RTA an estimated $3.5 million (prorated from and annual rate of $2.6 million) in additional operating costs.
 
After construction, the additional operating costs are estimated at $1 million per year.
 
Reference for Report: “Public Square traffic study by Nelson Nygaard a strong first step toward a greener downtown by Cleveland's Group Plan Commission”, Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer, June 13, 2012.




So far, since August 2014, there have been 678 hours of demonstrations – first with the LEAVE PUBLIC SQUARE ALONE signs and now with WELCOME JIMMY DIMORA PUBLIC SQUARE signs.


The demonstrations continue unabated with the goal of educating the public about corruption in Cuyahoga county.


Details of the campaign can be found on my blog at REALNEO:http://realneo.us/blogs/satinder-p-s-puri


P.S.: While I have very little in common with our Republican friends -- I am welcoming them as special guests to our gorgeous Cleveland!
