To All COLA LO Members,
In addition members reported that the discussion was highly partisan and that the meeting included partisan activists after the meeting was announced on a county political parity web site. The partisan nature of the new group came as little surprise to many given that the two councilors who were founders of the group accepted partisan support in their election efforts.
Some details can be found in the citizen article Negative Start.
The new group seems focused on the comprehensive plan, sensitive lands and other areas of policy. Another citizen from a local group provided additional comment on the Coalition's views on the sensitive lands position of the new council. Details can be found at Coalition Challenged over Sensitive Lands.
Several COLA members have reported back that former Councilor Tierney seemed unusually harsh and resentful of his defeat in the 2012 election.
General details can be found at: Coalition.
Please notify all members, contacts, and friends.
