Charter amendment response

-A A +A

It was no surprise to see a rebuttal to my recent column from my friend Terry Goldman, as I know Mr. Goldman as someone who enjoys rhetorical sparring nearly as much as I do. Unfortunately, this time around, he apparently forgot to employ a fact checker.
Contrary to Mr. Goldman’s assertion, the current referendum, initiative and recall process had absolutely nothing to do with the public vote on Ordinance 529; that vote was initiated by the county council in December 2006, just six months after the same Council selected the first Trinity Place developer, the Boyer company. The vote on Ordinance 529 followed on Jan. 30, 2007, passing by a 7 percent margin. The first Trinity Place deal did not collapse until nearly two years after that vote. The blame for that fiasco rests squarely on the shoulders of the developer and the county — not on any citizen-initiated action.
