New Library.. yeah or nay?

I'd like to know how our readers would vote on the new library... weather permitting Wednesday or Thursday.

After seeing some exaggerated user numbers put forth by the committee and the rush to get this approved by TM now, my opinion on a new branch library is that we not go forward. I liken this to someone who can't pay the mortgage but buys a new car. A bank who gets bail out money and lays off hundreds.

I'm not convinced that the State promise for funds for this project will hold true as it is now, we are 1.5 to 2 billion short this fiscal year and could see trouble down the road if the State does not provide the funding.
