Emmer: Why am I skeptical?

The city of Aspen spent $31.6 million on the Taj Mahal City Hall. That’s its most expensive, completed real-estate/construction project.  

The city spent $30 million on the lumberyard and adjoining self-storage property. It proposes to spend $400 million (probably more) completing the project. The project easily could total half a billion dollars by the time it is completed.

Who on City Council or city staff has the experience required to complete a half-billion dollar project? Names and resumes, please.
