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.
Now the voters will seal the deal with Our Downtown, Our Future. More housing, better Farmers Market, renovated historic library at Civic Center, cancelled unnecessary parking garage. Time to get the name of the initiative correct, Mr. Pierce.

[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]
