Democracy in Action, Really?


I have a couple of observations about Tuesday night’s Village Entrance meeting.  First, the opponents got something even better for themselves than letting all 20,000 citizens of Laguna Beach vote on the project. Ultimately, the group of about 200 gathered opponents got to vote, instead of the whole city, deciding its fate.

When Elizabeth Pearson reported that she had been told by proponents that they weren’t speaking up because of intimidation by opponents, she was booed.
