All over the Island, these flyers have gone up over the last couple of weeks:
On Thursday night, our potential new neighbors found 170 people at the United Methodist Church to discuss their arrival, 25 of whom filed a lawsuit the next day.
On the flyer above, the first link redirects to the second, which makes me think that merceris.com isn’t a local organization but a local-sounding name for tentcitysolutions.com. The headlines on that site call out the fears a lot of residents have about Tent City: “Crime follows Tent City to yet another community.”
Whatever your personal thoughts on Tent City, get ready for some controversy. I predict this isn’t going to go quietly, on either side.
