About 15 months ago three Town Council members, Wentworth, Fernie and Bacon made a 180 degree turn, tossing aside prior Councils’ decisions for a Mammoth Ice Rink. They reneged on a long term lease/partnership with MUSD. They threw away the $2 million investment made in good faith. We, the people, pleaded for a promised roof/shade structure on the rink. Our pleas fell on deaf ears. Wentworth, Fernie and Bacon decided to build a “state of the art,” expensive “Hollywood MUF”, etc., completely ignoring the community.
This MUF project has been and still is rife with misleading information, “alternative facts”, and worst of all, threatened litigation. How, with so many of us opposed, has the MUF gotten this far? We are utterly perplexed that you have continued with such a hodgepodge. You’re throwing away Mammoth Ice Rink plus destroying our lovely and well-used Mammoth Creek West park. Why? We’re confused about why you continue to pursue such a controversial and unpopular endeavor. Help us understand. Will some company name grace the MUF? What do we not know?
It is amazing and so very sad, that in our small town, we’re unable to find common ground. There are so many things our town needs. Surely it is not too late to find a unifying goal and move towards it together.
