President Rudd is, IMO, the best this university has had. Common sense guy with stones. He'll figure it out.

Here is a solution. Build it at Lambuth and tell the shittey of Memphis to eff off.

This is yet another example of why the city and the university are not one and the same. The city will frick the univ at every turn. The Univ should be it's own town and secede.

Yea, secession works so well. Your response is equally as negative and nonproductive as the political espionage perpetrated by Harris. You can’t make things better if the solution is abandoning the home front.

Harris will lose this battle because he wasn’t savvy enough to know the university had already made a commitment to do exactly what he asked for in holding the promised funding hostage. He also looks bad for hurting a project that addresses inner-city youth safety. And last he looks bad for playing politics when the university is acting to be one the best assets and best change agents the city has. He let a political element encourage him to put a political agenda ahead of a good partner.

Town and gown conflicts are common but rarely at an impasse.

You unintentionally make my case for me. I'll say no more.

We agree that Harris took the low road by using politics to the detriment of all concerned. But that is it. Your response suggested an equally detrimental position. We are 180 opposites there.

On a side note, I do feel bad for those who are stuck using any sort of community pool whether its at a park, community center, apartment, whatever. No desire whatsoever to swim w/ folks I don't know.

Yeah, uh not necessarily. I know at least three UofM professors personally and while they are good guys no one would ever accuse them of being geniuses.

He was not an adjunct. He was a full professor at the law school. He was my professor when I was there.

My friends never take bathroom breaks when swimming. And we drink a ton. What's up with that?

Good for Dr. Rudd! I'll agree that he's the best Pres we've had at UofM!

Maybe he thinks that there are better ways to spend that kind of money other than
a dang pool. Some of you would be the same ones jumping down his throat if the county started operating in the red because he is rubber stamping millions of taxpayers dollars on frivolous pet projects for supposedly self sufficient entities that he has no jurisdiction over.

But the funds were already committed

This is so painful to read. How can someone not see the benefit, the rational business decision of spending 1mill in public funds to get the benefit of a 30mill project. Not spending the 1mill has no impact on or city or on wages or on anything. The Mayor isn't going to use the money to raise salaries.

This is an investment. Look it up.

How do we progress when so many are so small minded...

He is Pandering pure and simple,

RE: Rudd drops bomb on County Mayor's Money for Influence Demand
Its a losing issue for the county mayor. How can he come out against public access to 30 million facility and not expect to pay a price? No telling how many, who would otherwise have no access to swim lessons and quality instruction, will now continue to have none. I do not see how this helps him politically with any segment of the community.

No, he’s trying to gain some kind of political win by withholding money until the university pays everyone what the mayor thinks is fair. Just another POS politician.
