"It is one of those things you probably wouldn't do even if you had the extra money.”
Mayor Charles Meeker, WRAL - February 17, 2009
Yes, Mayor Meeker, I agree that extending Crabtree Valley Avenue at a cost of $30 million is a crazy idea.
So what does Meeker do when you don't have any money?
Spend what will inevitably be millions of dollars on public art while you neglect essential police services.
Now, that's fiscal insanity.
