posted the other day that Some Businesses Matter was looking for someone to join Steve Thode to debate Hailstone and Fleck on the NIZ, I almost raised my hand. There was a time when Michael Schlossberg used to ask me to come on the show. I always said no; Truth is, I'd rather sit here, and opine on my schedule. Since Iannelli is essentially the third person on the pro side, it is not inappropriate to add a third chair for the side against.* Anyway, if they want to balance out the show with someone who was party to the displaced merchant's point of view, I will rent a tie and jacket.
*Bernie O'Hare will be on opposing side with Steve Thode
UPDATE: I have been invited by Business Matters to take Bernie O'Hare's place. Michael Fleck, representing the NIZ with Sara Hailstone, refused to appear with Bernie.
UPDATE: I have been informed that Sara Hailstone will NOT attend, and is being replaced by Jeff Barber, local mortgage broker and NIZ supporter.
