Hand-picking winners and losers

I find it interesting that local governments in Nevada County seek an outdoor events ordinance while they themselves rent out outdoor facilities that have noise, traffic, and trash impacts to nearby homes.

Then, I read that the Grass Valley City Council is going to subsidize a Jeep Tours Business. Sounds like hand-picking private sector winners and losers to me in order to maximize income to their own businesses they have chosen to be a part of.

President Obama would be proud of all of you.
