Candidate Wants City To Release Grand Prix Docs

BALTIMORE (AP) — A mayoral candidate is calling for the release of all documents related to the Baltimore Grand Prix.

Otis Rolley called on Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Monday to release all documents related to costs to taxpayers, agreements and operations of the race. Rolley says he does not believe that the Labor Day weekend event will be the economic boost that organizers and city officials say it will be.

Rawlings-Blake’s campaign’s response was says the three-day event expected to draw 100,000 people to the city will help small businesses, such as restaurants and shops and the city’s hotels.

    Hey Stephanie, will any of this money be used to lower my property taxes, water bill or BGE bill since this grand prix is a waste of money that Baltimore needs. I’m a tax payer and I would never go to anything downtown because of your high parking and high crime rate. You lost my vote a long time ago.

    It is a shame they are spending millions to make the streets to be used in the race immaculate.
    Meanwhile the rest of the city is full of pot holes, cracks and streets in total disrepair.
    Just compare the Light Steet north of Key Highway to Light Street south of Cross Street. Tell me this is tax payer dollars being spent to benefit the citizens of the city.
    The Mayor and City Council are a bunch of complete a$$holes

    One More Thing

    How is this helping small business when people can not even navigate around the fences, jersey walls, bleachers and closed roads to get to a city operated business.
    Hindsight is 20-20 Mayor Stupid Rawlings-Blake
