Horsefeathers at JJ&F

Why we are at it, why don’t we vette the developer of Alma Plaza and his relationship with his grocer tenant, the one that filed for bankruptcy soon after opening, which is a public document and seems to say, according to another local paper that the developer-grocer relationship was less landlord-tenant and more backer-backee or worse; vette them and use that experience here, or do nothing, but look into it. 

That story, Alma Plaza I mean Alma Village as prelude to JJ&F Plaza or whatever, is consistently reported with developer saying “I never collected a dime of rent from the guy, to help him” but could have more truthfully be reported as “I actually paid the guy to open his doors, with my profits from the upzoning on housing”.

Those who don’t know history are condemned to repeat it.
