Downtown Dayton Coalition - How does it work and who benefits?

The Dayton Daily News does not do its job, but that's no surprise, is it? They simply toot the horn of whatever some Dayton entity wants or says with no questions asked. Well I have a few? Who runs the Coalition? Who benefits? Are the earmarks actually working for the Region or is it a skim job to collect taxpayer money and dole it out to un regulated projects that provide no more value than the Bridge to Nowhere. The DDN does not see fit to explain any of this information, it is not a newspaper, but a stenographer for the connected in the Dayton Area. The DDN's goal is to fleece the public in two ways, provide a lousy paper at an exorbitant price and allow the ruling class to fleece the public coffers. The elite of Dayton, in cahoots with the DDN, know what is best for you! How has the been working out for Dayton?

Read the Article - Does it ever mention that Doug Franklin, the DDN publisher, is part of the Coalition?

I think it's the Dayton Development Coalition, which is different from the Downtown Dayton Partnerhsip. It's not intended to be just a downtown thing, but more region-wide.

That was a pretty good op-ed on the coaltion, too, in terms of how it works in developing a wish list to go to the Congresscritters.

It works in tandem with the MVRPC, or used to.

The process is pretty well layed out on their web page and links

http://www.daytonregion.com/subpage.aspx?Page=ripdacppfp

..and you can look at the "Project Priority Funding Process" page:

http://www.daytonregion.com/subpage.aspx?Page=ripdacppfp

As for membership, there is a link to a .pdf of their member list here:

http://www.daytonregion.com/subpage.aspx?Page=riddcbm

Memebership is by organization, but there probably is some board or steering committee.

Jeffery,

Thanks for the information and I am aware that it is a Regional thing and I would still re-iterate that this model is no more transparent than an individual getting a bridge to nowhere. The people on the steering committee are the same people that drive opinion (DDN) and fund the same old Congress critters. The DDN makes it seem like a good system and Turner touts it because it keeps the light off his back. The role of a good newspaper is too insure disinfectant occurs by asking questions. The Dayton Development Coalition, MVRPC, Dayton Chamber of Commerce are a force to ensure that the development occurs and the membership committee gets most of the benefit. Now one may say that Clay M. does not benefit and he his operating out of altruism. Well maybe so, but just because you run a pet food company and sold out, it does not mean you know anything about what projects benefit the Region as a whole.

Good points Greg,

The DDN article makes it seem like this is the best way to procede in procuring earmarks, but fails to fully disclose how the porcess works and who the decision makers are. The Coalition would have you believe that they are all about improving the community, but have bilked the city and county for hundreds of thousands with very little to show for it. Truth be told, they take credit for others' work, and really only spend their time out at the base. What's most important, and what would be most beneficial, is to let the voices of the people, the tax payers, speak. The Coalition acts as a clearing house w/o having to answer to anyone, who put them in charge? Education issues are one of our most pressing, where are they on this issue? Orgs like the Chamber are clueless, just check out what their public policy VP said in the DDN (http://www.daytondailynews.com/o/content/oh/story/opinions/editorial/2007/06/21/ddn062207retiree2xxeb.html). In turn for their support of the DPS levy the Chamber asked to be able to name a consultant to look at their books and DPS HAD TO enact everything the consultant recommended. Maybe they should look at their own books, Parker is the highest paid nonprofit CEO aside from the CareSource leaders, but the Chamber has done nothing to improve the business climate as evidenced by our economic decline.

I am the kind of guy who enjoys to seek hot stuff. Right now I am constructing my personalized solar panels. I'm doing it all alone without the help of my men. I am using the net as the only way to acheive this. I came across a really brilliant site which explains how to contruct solar panels and so on. The web site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I'm not really sure bout how correct the information given there is. If some experts over here who had xp with these things can have a peak and give your feedback in the site it would be awesome and I would really value it, because I really like [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. U people are the best.
