Dogging Mayor Hays

Posted By on Tue, Jul 21, 2009 at 8:19 AM

I meant to mention this, but Scott Miller at Argenta News has done the full job on NLR Mayor Pat Hays' latest nutty rationale for his bond-doggle to borrow money to buy the necessary infrastructure so that Central Arkanas Transit can buy more expensive gas-powered buses rather than the clean diesel buses most prefer to buy.

I refer to Hay's comment that it's our "red, white and blue" patriotic duty to use gas rather than foreign oil. (Particularly if a politically influential gas company and bond daddies can score a little change in the procdess.) Better still would be Arkansas-made biodiesel, Miller notes.
