Deconstructing Doug Robinson
From Doug Robinson's article: "For months, Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon vowed he wouldn't spend public money on Dave Checketts' soccer stadium" FALSE. Mayor Corroon always said he would approve the right deal. He never discounted the use of public money. "Corroon turns down the stadium project because he says he is protecting the public interest and doesn't want to use public money for it." FALSE. See above. "Corroon, still enjoying his new popularity, repeats that he will listen to any funding plan as long as it is the people's will." FALSE. Mayor Corroon always said that he would approve a deal that made sense for SLCo. He never put a "people's will" qualifier on any plan. "On Aug. 12, Corroon takes the bait like a hungry bass." FALSE. RSL and others asked Mayor Peter Corroon to present to them a plan that would be acceptable to the county. This he did August 11.
