Tony Stewart re: Education Corridor

At his retirement announcement Thursday, I asked Tony Stewart a question from the audience re: the attempt by Rep. Bob Nonini and the Republican Pachyderm Club to stop the Education Corridor project. Here’s some sound bites from his response:

*”If we don’t do this now, this city will suffer for the rest of its history.”
*”$10 million is peanuts compared to what we will get out of this.”
*”You can’t teach someone to be visionary.”
*”I was called a “commie” by people who opposed the purchase of the NIC beach. You won’t find people now who’d admit that they opposed the purchase.
*”You have to have courage to do the right thing.”
