The difference in how we're viewing this is you have blind faith in the administration that made this decision. Its being questioned a lot. It should be questioned.

Again, council voted against this Katz proposal that the city occupy and lease the proposed Katz tower. This being a democratic vote democratically by the representatives of this city that are VOTED on to city council.

This decision later being overturned by an administrative body. That nobody voted in.

As to the bid process criticism of the process was saying Katz was going to win all along. Is it because he had the best bid? How would you know? How would any of us know.

16 bids, just curiously the bid likely to be the most controversial won. Who didn't see that coming?
