Why does The Olympian feel compelled to continue soliciting input from former Mayor Bob Jacobs on every single proposed development or land-use change in downtown Olympia? He hasn’t been mayor for almost 15 years.
Given all the press he and his followers have received over the years, isn’t it already crystal clear what they think about ____ (fill in the blank) proposed project.
Newsflash! They don’t want Olympia to change.
In the spirit of the Fairness Doctrine, maybe it’s time to give a voice to some younger people with a different perspective.
Perhaps the next time The Olympian needs a quote, it can reach out to someone from the younger generation who supports smart growth in downtown Olympia. Because some of us would actually like to have a denser urban core so future generations can enjoy a more environmentally and economically sustainable city and region.
