Mary Doesn’t Support Vision 2030

Mary Souza/ is back in her soapbox castigating City Attorney Mike Gridley for inviting her to be part of the Vision 2030 project. Mary, who recently was washing her hands re: Coeur d'Alene Trustee Brent Regan's insensitve remark at that legislative forum, is back claiming to speak for us Coeur d'Alene residents (hint: she doesn't). Among her statements:

Without honest, responsive and accountable government, there is no trust. And without trust, how can any visioning effort be sincere? That’s our problem in CdA right now. The citizens have been ignored, disrespected and abused.  We don’t trust our city. Now, suddenly, comes a visioning exercise? Is this an move to soften the damages done by the McEuen fiasco in preparation for this November’s City election where Mayor Bloem, Deanna Goodlander, Mike Kennedy and Woody McEvers will have to face the voters? More here.

Question: Do you see value in participating in an effort to envision Coeur d'Alene's future?
