"Please help save my home"
A few days ago, we noted Mayor White's "Boot the Mentally Retarded Revenue Stream" proposal.
Since then, the Center Serving Persons with Mental Retardation has launched a website to raise awareness of the White Administration's craven plans: SaveTheCenter.org.
The site details ways in which interested individuals can help the Center on this issue.
Here's a quote from a board member displayed prominently on the site:
We have a 99 year lease on five acres of property, which was signed in 1963, and which is still fully in effect. And, we have a preferential right to a 30 year renewal on the remaining one acre,” states Jack Manning. “These leases have been honored by seven Mayors: Lewis Cutrer, Louie Welch, Fred Hofheinz, Jim McConn, Kathy Whitmire, Bob Lanier and Lee Brown — all of whom were able to guide the City’s financial affairs without seizing properties utilized to serve the City’s retarded population. Only Mayor Bill White has suggested the eviction of the mentally retarded in order to enhance the City’s revenue stream.
Mayor White needs to rethink this one.
