The money quote?
The attorneys and their public relations team declined several requests for interviews with the Indy.
All their protestations to the contrary about how they believe their work is in the best interests of the community yadda yadda yadda vanish in a plume of smoke. They don't want to talk about it in public.
Durham - you've got a pretty clear choice ahead of you in the next two years, as we vote first on 4 of our City Council seats this year, and then all 5 of our County Commissioners seats next year. Do you want these land use attorneys pushing projects and policies that will turn Durham into the new Atlanta, or do you want a sustainable, organic growth process that allows us to become a new model for the 21st century.
That decision will be made in the next 16 months.
