Redistricting's impact on the Urban Limit Line
Original post made by [removed] on Jul 9, 2011
As BANG continues to provide excellent perspective on the impact of redistricting, Ron Brown of Save Mt. Diablo presents redistricting as very important close to home, Web Link. By leaving Mary Piepho in control of the 680 south corridor as is proposed in the supervisors preferred Proposal 9, she can continue her direct support of developers. The result would be an assault of the Urban Limit Line and the build-out of Tassajara Valley by contributors to her office holder account.
In recent review of office holder accounts by new service researchers, it has been discovered that at least three supervisors are directly linked to their approvals of development by contributions by individuals leading such development. Information that will be part of features on incumbent supervisor this fall will illustrate such linkage as they ramp their re-election campaigns. In the case of Mary Piepho, the reality is made more obvious by her selection of a Chief of Staff who is a land and property developer with linkage to developers throughout the East Bay.
In service to your readers, shouldn't you be their source of details about the relationships between their supervisor and developers?
