07/27/2020 11:40 PM Now I think working on an amendment that controls when the Ron Alleva property is purchased. Sorry having trouble tracking. More discussion of funding. “Let’s be open and honest” huh. Well that would be an interesting experience with this Assembly. Voting…. Fails 6-4.
——-
07/27/2020 11:31 PM Now voting on an amendment to purchase Mr Alleves property by Brother Francis. More filthy accusations. A lot of discussion. Suddenly they’re worried about funding sources. Voting…. Passes. They added something about market value.

07/27/2020 11:27 PM More amendments. I apologize I’ve lost track of what they are voting on. Ah – voting to split it into individual property purchases. That passed.

07/27/2020 10:16 PM The day engagement center at the Ak Club 630 W Tudor Rd is expected to be up and running quickly. Heads up, Heather Meadows. No words on where day center clients go come nightfall. I imagine they’ll go into woods by Heather Meadows.
———
07/27/2020 10:00 pm Assembly member Kennedy asked essentially whether our testimony had any effect. Were our alternate suggestions considered? Nope. Not really. We have informed the process going forward on the RFP. Oh and transportation. Oh yeah, and they’re going to improve communication and they hope we stay as engaged going forward.
——-
07/27/2020 9:51 PM Neighbors, I expect this is going to run until midnight. I would truly like to have at least a small group outside the chambers to show the Assembly that we stand witness. We virtually have work tomorrow and another late night isn’t fun.

But please come stand with us as the Assembly departs. I’ll keep posting updates and try to give a heads up if it appears they’re breaking up sooner.

If you can, please come stand with us.
———-
07/27/2020 9:42 PM Folks you truly need to be listening or watching this meeting. They are revealing themselves. As suspected, this is the tip of the spending iceberg.
———-
07/27/2020 9:38 PM They are admitting that it will be over $22 million and that they’ll come back for more money.
——-
07/27/2020 9:23 PM Yes, yes there are schools by these facilities. Denali PEAK and SAVE High School. So they will screen the pedophiles and exclude them from some facilities, not all, and push them out to these family neighborhoods. Way to protect the community. And no discussion of the predators that are attracted to vulnerable drug addicts / alcoholics that homeless.
——-
07/27/2020 8:37 PM Assembly meeting has been extended to midnight. Hanging out in Loussac parking lot, listening to testimony on my phone. In it for the long haul tonight. It is a beautiful evening to stand in solidarity against these stinkpots. Come chill and listen with us in the parking lot at Loussac.
Let’s give these rascals a good send off when they exit the Assembly chambers in a few hours.
I’m in it for the duration. I know you are too.
Together we are mighty.

A great turnout. We greeted most of the Assembly with chants. We greeted the incomparable Jamie Allard with cheers of approval. What a mighty champion and voice of reason she has been.

Outside the chambers. Denied entry – Covid + Emergency Powers.

About a dozen of us listening to the Assembly Meeting on our phones and discussing better ways to solve these problems.

Currently the Mayor and his spokesperson are discussing their logic and reasoning.

Will post periodic updates through the evening.

THEN – come back and greet the Assembly as they depart. We don’t know what time that will be. Watch and make your best guess on when you return to Loussac.

Don’t let them leave without facing us.
