UB Walks Away from McCarley Gardens Purchase

Boy, that was five years of architectural drawings and bogus public meetings for nothing. Hooray!

To celebrate, here’s a picture of former UB Foundation chair Francis Letro (far left) celebrating the now defunct Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption.

Outgoing UB Law School Dean and former member of the Moreland Commission Makau Mutua is currently being accused of perjury. What’s not to smile about?

    I second Peter Reese! Thank you Buck and Artvoice for helping to expose this boondoggle for what it was. Thanks to George Arthur and friends for a standing in support of McCarley Gardens residents. Thanks to the residents and church members for their for their resolve. Saving this neighborhood from gentrification makes good sense. Low income residents have a right to a seat at the proverbial table!
