Greg Fischer’s got a you-know-what for flip-flopping. We’ve talked about it on several occasions.
And yesterday, Hal Heiner’s campaign released the following:
- Two months ago Greg told a crowd at Bellarmine College he wouldn’t rule out the privatization of Metro jobs, then last week held a press conference railing against privatization.
- In 2008 Greg stated in an AFL-CIO questionnaire that he supported card check, but two weeks ago told a group of attorneys at Middleton & Reutlinger that he didn’t support card check.
- Greg’s latest flip flop took place today when he contradicted a February statement from the Arts Forum. You can see in the following YouTube footage that Greg clearly supported a new local sales tax just 7 months ago, but today stated he would not.
Furthermore, in a reoccurring theme of co-opting Hal’s policy as his own, Greg today took the opportunity to copy more of Heiner’s policy positions.
- Auditing every department of city government. (Heiner Fall 2009 position, whitepaper released)
- Creating an urban coalition. (Heiner Spring 2010, whitepaper released)
- Cutting the red-tape in metro government to streamline the permitting process. (Heiner Spring 2010, whitepaper released)
- Streamlining the Bridges Project. (Heiner July 2010)
It was just too succinct not to share.
