- Sponsored and promoted the "Car Wash Exemption Bill" despite a conflict of interest (the bill passed on second reading on January 2; must pass on third reading next Tuesday, January 16, to become law)
- Disregarded the interests of the impacted constituents
- Failed to follow through on promises to defer the bill made at a Planning Meeting
- Subverted the Public Hearing Process
The week before last, I was critical of neighborhood groups for allowing car wash proponents on the Council to marginalize bill opponents by not showing up for the Public Hearing. But if Ms. Neighbors did attempt to subvert the process by leading constituents to think that she would defer before actually shepherding the bill through, then I take my criticism of them back. If these allegations are true, then their only fault was in trusting that their elected representative would do as she said she would do.
