Shoaff Speaks

Harrison Square viewpoint distorted

The editor compared my views to those of Matt Kelty and Tom Smith, and by inference created the impression that I would not keep agreements made with the Harrison Square developers. Had I been asked directly, I would have said that I believe, like Smith and Kelty or any responsible public official, that proper agreements must be kept, and if in fact Harrison Square goes forward, we must all work to make it succeed.
The most serious misimpression created by the editorial was the inference that what “I don’t worry about” is the breaking of agreements. I would worry very much about breaking agreements, and I would not support any such action.

John is trying to have it both ways. He is clearly 100% against the project and he has worked hand and hand with Mr. Kalb to try to prevent the project at any turn.
