LIBA flexes muscle at city hall
LIBA and Jon Camp appear to have successfully stalled the city purchase of the Experian building, and now have set their sights on the location of a new LES transmission line.
LIBA has increasingly proven its power over City Hall — when LIBA speaks, people listen. Just look at how swiftly Councilman Jonathan Cook and the Beutler administration backed off on allowing departments to raise fees without consulting the City Council, once LIBA began bombarding the council with emails and calls.
I’m beginning to wonder if LIBA isn’t more powerful than the Chamber of Commerce, at this point. What do you think?
