  The Mayor Wanted This s   What would have happened if the sportsplex was passed by the voters? The state or thecounty would not have contributed a dime, and there would be no Tiger Grant. How manyyears would we be waiting if we only had $25 million for a $93 million project?We need to trust the voters instead of the politicians, because voters saved Paseo. If theRepublicans had their way in October, a sportsplex would be under construction, and therewould be no need for a special meeting today. Groundbreaking on Paseo would be years away.Now the politicians tell us we risk federal money if voters decide. There is a new Tiger Grantevery 6 months. If the project qualifies for federal funds today, it will qualify in November. He Did Not Want to Fix This  The Facts about Paseo & Mayor Berry’s “ABQ: The Plan”   “   Sports Complex, Bike Trail, Boardwalk And White-Water Park Would Goto Voters ”    By By Dan McKay Journal Staff Writer on Thu, Jul 28, 2011   1)   Albuquerque’s future could include white -water rafting at Balloon Fiesta Park.No, really.2) But if a slow-moving river is more your speed, you could head over to the Rio Grandebosque, where the city might build a riverfront boardwalk, patio and space for a restaurant.3) Prefer riding your bicycle along Tramway? Well, City Hall could help with that, too, bycompleting a 50-mile loop around Albuquerque.4) And for those who love traditional sports, Albuquerque might build a 35-acrecomplex of baseball and softball fields, complete with a fieldhouse that can host basketballand volleyball tournaments, too. http://www.abqjournal.com/main/2011/07/28/news/sports-complex-bike-trail-boardwalk-and-white-water-park-would-go-to-   voters.html  The Mayor wanted the four projects above instead of Paseo. When asked if he thoughtSPENDING $50 MILLION FOR THESE POJECTS WAS FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE - Berry Says, YES!   The Paseo/I-25 interchange was NOT   part of the Mayor’s “ABQ: The Plan”Democrats O’Malley, Garduno and Benton supported an amendment sponsored by Sanchez to kill all the Mayor’s boutique projects and   invest all $50 million in Paseo. Winter, Lewis, Harris, Cook, and Jones voted against the amendment. They thought spending 25 million on a   sportsplex was more important than Paseo.  Republican Councilors forced the Mayor to toss the bike path, rollerblading on the river, andwhite water rafting at the Balloon Park and include $25 million for Paseo.The Mayor only agreed to include $25 million for Paseo if the Republicans log-rolled Paseo andthe sportsplex into one question with $25 million for the sportsplex and $25 million for Paseo.Voters did not have a choice and 63% of the voters rejected “T he Republican ’ s Plan. ”   NOW THEY WANT YOU TO BELIEVE PASEO HAS ALWAYS BEEN THEIR PRIORITY WE DO NOT BUY IT MAYOR BERRY andCOUNCLORS WINTER, LEWIS, HARRIS, COOK, and JONES
