In order to get a handout the developers do a dance.
It's a performance and as many have witnessed in the City's CBA Process and at the DBRA meetings,
THEY AREN'T VERY GOOD AT IT.
Detroit People's Platform have been watching their performance closely and there are inconsistencies in what they say and how they move.
It is apparent that a part of their dance is intended to distract from the fact that they are attempting to claim $167M in benefits when they are only directly contributing $12M. This is according to what we know. Unfortunately, the developers dance has been so bad, BOTH the NAC and DBRA Board stopped discussion without seeing the whole thing.
