Letter to Good Times, 11/10/2021

...The city-sponsored (Mathews’ gang) proposed mixed-use project added “an olive branch” to an atrocious parking garage and bait-and-switch Measure S library deception by adding affordable housing to the project. Good start; I’m glad power listened.

[The article referred to the group as “Our Downtown,” a common shorthand of the name, but should have employed the full name on first reference. This error has been corrected in the online version. — Editor]
