Why Did The State Buy A $30 Million Garage?
Does this make any sense to you? On Friday at the Bond Commission meeting the “Malloy Supremacy” spent $30 million of your tax dollars to buy a parking garage owned by the city of Hartford. Number one, why does the state need a new parking garage ? The Supremacy is always bragging about reducing the size of government, but far worse is the fact that the garage was appraised at $9 million and they are spending $23 million to purchase it, plus we are paying $3 million to lease the land from the city and the garage needs $4 million of rehab work to be done, total $30 million. You would think if you were paying almost 3 times the appraised value you could at least get the land? Something doesn’t sound right, it’s amazing in this recession what the politicians will spend your money on. No wonder taxes keep going up! Tune in……because you can’t make this stuff up!
