Crumb Snatcher?

“We’re the average joes and we’re the average janes.  We’re African-american, we’re asian, we’re hispanic we’re all these different things.  We struggle and yet we’re accused of taking the money.  But nobody’s taking account of moneys that come out to support the opposition.  It’s ok for them to have all of that.  It’s ok for my city council and my state senator to give them $100,000 so they can do an environmental to review the project that’s $200,000 but grassroots organization like us we couldn’t get 5 cents.  So if we get $50,000 from the developer again for things you’re showing and you’re doing, oh you’re taking the money and you’re running off and you’re doing whatever.  This is not a get rich quick scheme.” Hard working advocate
