In the thread at Sekula on the North Annex: "Clarify and frame this discussion and ensure that it is portrayed accurately," NAC's Bluegill wrote:
One negative consequence of tying the youth shelter to demolition is that it unnecessarily pits two proactive, positive groups against each other.
The youth shelter folks have undoubtedly advocated long and hard for improved conditions, and rightfully so. What they've been told is that tearing down the county home is the ONLY way to get it.
It's created another fight where there really is none.
Precisely. And who is encouraging this fight where none should be?
The County Commissioners and the County Council, both of whom are pushing the youth shelter advocates forward and changing the topic in the process.
In the used car biz, don't they call that a bait and switch?
