Questions hovered around the Baker restoration and the 4B Sales Tax reallocation for the remainder of the session. No one left unsatisfied with the outcome – at least no one who spoke up. Many even took the microphone to express their excitement and gratitude towards the team.
In the end, Mayor Allen noted that the Baker is a pinnacle of hope for the community, and Patton made the audience aware of just how committed the team is to seeing this project through.
“This is an opportunity for this community to make a statement that we want to grow,” Allen said.
“I just want to conclude by saying thank you for the opportunity this evening to give me and our team a platform to share the details of this project,” Patton said “… The Baker, as you already know … reaches coast to coast. We pray every single night that God continues to guide us. … We will be here, God willing, to the end. All I can tell you is that if we do run into a couple of road blocks down the road, it doesn’t mean we are walking away. It doesn’t mean we are giving up. It just means that we’ve got another road block. And let me tell you, over six years, we have hopped over a number of these road blocks. So, stick with us.”
