ART Bus Project Again Destroys Summerfest

This Channel 4 news story reports how the ART Bus project will destroy Summerfest the second year in a row yet the Berry Administration gives kudos to the construction crews saying the Summerfest event will be allowed to go on in only half of the area of Nob Hill.

Municipal Election day is a little over three (3) months away on October 3, 2017 when we will be electing a new Mayor and five (5) city councilors. Early voting is to start in mid-September. Voters need to remember all three (3) city councilors who are up for re-election and who carried Mayor Berry’s water on the ART Bus project namely Diane Gibson, Ken Sanchez, Don Harris. All three (3) need to be voted out of office and held accountable for the arrogance they have exhibited with the ART Bus project and the destruction of Route 66. Congressional candidate Pat Davis also supported ART to the determent of his own constituents in Nob Hill.
