The tale of Measure B & D

What do term limits and moving a city hall have to do with
one another? Poor execution….on getting the right message
to the voters. It was very wrong to take a voted on Park
away from the people in the name of a beautiful view plane
for City Hall bureaucrats! It was very wrong to extend the
terms of a Mayor or anyone else… a self serving sense.

Wrongs? Sounds like we are making some moral judgments here
that may require further study. Did the other side have right
on their side or some wisdom that we may missed in our many
assessments? Perhaps we failed to see all the true value to
the communities involved? Who knows?

Yet, when you think about what we might have done…to change
the results…..that is what hurts. Perhaps, we didn’t write
clearly enough. Perhaps we didn’t put enough effort into the
process and steps along the way. What should we learn from
all of this? Surely, anyone can rail and scream NO, NO, NO…
and hope to get the people motivated to come out and cast the
winning ballot…on your side. This time we failed. Next time
we will put more effort into challenging each point and each

So dear friends….we lost these two very wrong-headed ideas
and missed our mark. Next time…..Next time……
