Vote to defund the library - May 10, 2010

One of the trademarks of the TCU-supported candidates in this city campaign is to simplify complicated issues.
For example, the May 10, 2010 budget vote that, in effect, defunded the library, was a three-year budget that took away library funding in order to protect public safety/police.
As TCU folk claim that this city council has not been fiscally responsible, they ignore the fact that this was a vote about fiscal responsibility at it's core. But define it as you will.
They ALSO continuously claim that Robin Beltramini voted for this defunding of the library. That is not true.
Here is an example of the claim, from Troy Patch comments by Audre (click to see):
The vote against the Library (keeping them on the budget) was voted 6 against and 2 infavor. The two in favor was Councilman Wade Flemning and Councilman Martin Howrylak. So know your facts.
However, the facts are available to everyone at the city's website in the minutes of the meeting here, under May 10 minutes: http://troymi.gov/Council/Meetings/Archive.aspx?Year=2010

The vote was this:
Yes: Schilling, Kerwin, McGinnis, Slater
No: Beltramini, Fleming, Howrylak
MOTION CARRIED 
Audre is a big Janice Daniels supporter and has given generously to Janice's campaign. You may have noticed that suddenly the TCU-folk care about  library and this intentional dis-information about Robin Beltramini's vote on May 10, is simply a campaign tactic they are using to claim they have always cared about the library.
