It sure is a heavy hint as to where it may be going.

I thought that until I found out about where he went. In his heart, John is a builder, not a politician. We could see him back in the actual construction phase.

Ditto your comment, Ralph.

Good riddance, hope the project itself "resigns" as well. Wonder if John Bruno is going to remain on the local Chamber of Commerce now that the one project he was supposed to spearhead is dead in the water? P.S. Isn't Steve Penna (head of Spectrum Magazine) friends with Rosanne Foust and others who were pushing for the (now dead) Saltworks project? Pretty sure that's what "sources close to Spectrum" refers to.

Nobody was pushing this project except DMB and Saltworks, they were doing what we elected them to do. I wish people would get off the blame game.

Penna clearly loves hobnobbing with council members and nobody was elected to entertain and encourage years-long efforts to develop and sell our city on massive proposals to fill our easily-restorable Baylands on which such development is (and long has been) prohibited. The responsible and perfectly legal/permitted thing for the city to do would have been to save everyone a lot of time, money and grief and say "sorry Cargill, that's not a concept we're going to entertain."
