Stonecipher is doing her job
Any decision is based on how we hope the future might look. I would like an industrial park where green energy products are made, adding to our local tax base and supplying livable wage jobs. Include sculptured parks with breathtaking views. Let's add a trolley shuttle to a cobblestoned, traffic-free downtown, with unique shops that draw visitors to dine and shop.
But not knowing the future, I feel we have to keep a deep water port available as an option. But I'll tell you this; shipping doesn't offer the highest number of jobs, Alternative three does. If we are to have an economically healthy future we need to discuss many options, including clean energy industries. Disagree if you want, but let's not hammer City Council members for doing what we elected them to do. Councilmember Stonecipher is asking the questions and doing her job. I think we should be appreciative and pleasantly surprised by that.
