The above tweet was met as fact by the local main stream media, and a rather touchy retort by Sandy DElousa City of Charlotte media relations hack.
Of course when asked to deny that there where contingency plans in place nothing but crickets.
At least Sandy and the CATS Twitter feed are on the same page, wonder why?
Thirty minutes later main stream media was walking back the story they had earlier ran with.
But CP had already heard that the trolley had been shut down.
Just after 5 pm CATS was forced to shut down the CARS bus transfer station, yet the official tweeter feed was silent.
Finally CMPD street unit shows up.
Finally at 11 pm, nearly five hours after bus service to the transportation center was shut down CATS tweets the obvious.
CP's Take: I've got pretty good sources. Sometimes the details are a little off, which is just enough for GuvCo to deny the facts. Not sure why they don't just tell the truth. "Yes, we have contingency plans to work in concert with CMPD, to shut down the buses and the Lynx lines, if needed, but no decision has been made yet".
Now we know that Sandy is just anither GuvCo liar with a resting bitch face.
