E. Thomas Wood and Walker Duncan at the Post have a comment from Vice Mayoral Candidate and Council Member Diane Neighbors in the wake of the car wash exemption controversy. It seems unchanged from what she, Charlie Tygard, and other co-sponsors have argued in public council deliberations.
Ms. Neighbors still does not address the matter of whether she promised neighborhood leaders one thing and then did another in moving for approval on January 2; nor does she divulge any information regarding financial or campaign ties she may or may not have to car wash exemption proponents. Just as she did on January 2, she also ignores the primary concern driving neighborhood opposition to the bill: that neighborhood streets off of the main arterials will be flooded with traffic because of new car wash developments.
