Much of this money went to political consultant Davies Public Affairs, whose motto is "we make NIMBY's and naysayers irrelevant", and who brags about "winning in the court of public opinion … to overcome NIMBY's … (we have) won approval for offshore oil, nuclear plants, coal plants …. across the county". (www.daviespublicaffairs.com) Makes me wonder how the "NIMBY's" in Louisiana are holding up under the brunt of the BP oil well blowout?
As a City Councilmember, my concern about this goes far beyond houses in the hills. This election is about nothing less than saving local democracy and how vast sums of money, influence, and power can undermine it. If you believe that NIMBY's are actually citizens and that our democratic rights are worth fighting for then join me and vote NO on Measure D, Oak Grove.
Pleasanton City Council
