Windsor Development loan advocated by Matheny

Is this what John Hammer meant when he wrote "Matheny has voted for far too many giveaways."?

"David Howard, a member/manager of Windsor Development Group, gave $500 to Mayor Robbie Perkins." and later Zack Matheny;

And Gerbings;

"If Roses rewrote the rules, Gerbing broke them.

Councilman Zack Matheny brought this project to the table. The Stoneville high-tech clothing manufacturer wanted to move its headquarters downtown.

The city’s incentive program is meant to spur “catalytic” development projects downtown — like that $40 million luxury hotel, which would transform the city skyline by adding the first new skyscraper in years.

But the Gerbing project didn’t hit the mark. They weren’t investing the minimum $1.5 million required by city policy.

Gerbing planned to spend $266,384 to outfit a new office and hire 25 people.

So city staff drafted a new incentive policy that would give Gerbing $150,000 up front.

The council decided not to approve the policy change.

But it still gave Gerbing the money.

“Sometimes you need to consider investing a dollar to get two back,” Matheny said.

Afterward, Gerbing representatives debated with city attorneys about whether they had to create new jobs — or if they could relocate them.

As Zack's congressional run announcement took place at Koury Corp's airplane hangar, the question of his involvement with Koury's $200,000 "reimbursement" that never made it to council is suddenly an issue;

Guess who appears to have paid for Koury Corp's water pressure fix; Please look into a mirror...

Should the chair of the City's Economic Development Committee accept campaign contributions from employees of entities receiving money from the city via city council votes advocated and voted on by Zack Matheny?
