From today’s letters to the editor:
Clark’s stand on land issue really isn’t fooling anyone
September 9, 2010 News Journal
The issue of the Stoltz Barley Mill Plaza is becoming ludicrous.
This so-called “redevelopment” is clearly another effort on the part of developers to twist the New Castle County zoning code to their advantage. In my mind, “redevelop” means taking a run-down property and enhancing it to the benefit of the community at large.
County Council President Paul Clark ought to shut his mouth. He accuses Councilman Bob Weiner of playing hypocritical political games. If there is a hypocrite in this issue, it is without a doubt Clark, who states that he will recuse himself from any vote at County Council on any issue regarding this proposal. At the same time, he goes around promoting the project and ridiculing those who are opposed to it. Does he really think he is kidding anyone?
Does he really think that those of us who live outside the “Chateau” area do not care about what goes on there and how it affects the quality of our lives? Does he really expect us to believe that his wife, a lawyer in the case, has no effect on his views?
