Cliff Clinger was in Corbin yesterday extolling virtues of the budget-busting Corbin Expo Center the Bluegrass Institute has been warning you about for years.
Get used to this kind of language, courtesy of the Corbin Times Tribune:
“…to General Manager Cliff Clinger, the expo center is far from just an expensive building — it’s an investment in the community.”
“Clinger spoke about the “huge economic development factors” that will come with the completion of the expo center in March 2009.”
So far we have cost overruns, bonded indebtedness, tax increases, and lots of flowery language for this boondoggle. But this one was my favorite:
““This is a community project. This is really something that is going to help the entire community. So it’s not just about us on the hill… taking from you… This is also about what we are bringing to you,” Clinger said.”
