When it rains, it pours...

It was a good day for Mayor Scott Johnson and his proposed recreation center.

All in one day, the lawsuit pending against the building was overturned by judge Thomas Nolan, and the ZBA granted area variances for the center.

The ZBA vote, which was 6-1, nearly served as a referendum on the project, as the City Council did not need the land use board's approval for the project, and Johnson sent it there anyway, possibly in hopes that he will have more ammunition to go to the public and say the project has proper approval.

In other words, the ruling should silence some of the critics.

I bet the name of the building will be the SCOTT JOHNSON Rec center now that his cronies on the ZBA had a meeting on the same day the Judge gave his ruling, Hmmm I wonder how that happened.
