I am seriously distressed by, as Hezekiah Allen described, "the winner-take-all political culture" that Estelle Fennell has embraced ("Blog Jammin'," June 20).
It's been said that there wasn't enough time for people in more rural areas to participate in the GPU process. Thirteen years: just not enough. Early June, Fennell creates a rewrite of the GPU guidelines. July 8, the supervisors meet and say they'd be willing to allow more time for further public input. The deadline is September 23. Fennell says that now people have had plenty of time to be involved in the process. Four months is enough!! It must be so if Fennell says it is so. Big sigh!!!
Well, I hope people who oppose the newly revised guidelines don't lose sight of the deadline.
To contribute, go to www.planupdate.org and/or attend the public hearing on September 23, 6-9 p.m.
