Days after the city terminated it's contract with Think Rubix for LITfest the feckless Little Rock Mayor finally pulls the plug on the poorly planed and rushed festival.
Here's the press release that the city sent out this afternoon:
It appears that the feckless mayor is trying to make the city attorney the fall guy and he says that is was a music festival.
The city attorney had a quick reply that was first shared by the Arkansas Times.
Most of the advertised musical acts were already booked into local clubs long before LITfest was announced.
Ticket sales for the headliner with hits from two decades ago were embarrassingly small.
And it turns out that Think Rubix had zero funds to pay for anything!
Here's what Matt Campbell was able to get from LR city manager Bruce Moore:
The Arkansas Times reported statement from Think Rubix that they had not
received any funds from the city (lie) nor from any sponsor.
Any reasonable individual would wonder how Think Rubix would be able to book any performer without some sort of payment being made, even one that was a thing two decades ago like Ashanti that was allegedly their headliner.
LR city directors have called for an outside investigation.
No doubt this will be another embarrassment for the safe city of Little Rock and its citizens thanks to the Scott Administration.
