New mayor James Hightower wanted to get a financial plan in place for taking back control of the city, but most of the commission didn’t show up: http://www.abc57.com/home/top-stories/Mass-protests-scheduled—136706378.html.
Several commissioners are planning protests to disrupt the Senior PGA to be played at Harbor Shores in May. http://www.abc57.com/home/top-stories/Mass-protests-scheduled—136706378.html The tournament is expected to have a $20 million dollar economic impact on the community.
This is the kind of opportunity Benton Harbor needs. Energies spent on sabotaging it are a waste of time and energy that could be spent getting ready to help the city capitalize on the opportunity.
