Looks like the Redevelopment Wars have gone to "the mattresses." Russ Swatek and Co. have started "Taxpayers Against Giveaways" and will be renewing efforts at a petition to get this vote to referendum.
I can't find a link for the group, but this is an interesting (however predictable) turn of events. I don't really know where I stand on this. On the one hand, I've seen the mess that direct democracy can have (i.e., California). On the other, open referendum will allow these "people on the margin" as they were inartfully described, reach their "court of last resort." There can be no further debate if the referendum approves the redevelopment plans. If it is the will of the people, then let nothing get in its way.
