Re "Approval of Cordova Hills is a body blow for smart planning" (Editorials, Feb. 3): I attended the Board of Supervisors and sat through almost seven hours of information, including Mike McKeever's warning that should this project be approved, we may exceed the standards set by SB 375 and AB 32 that requires us to reduce emissions. If we are out off compliance, we could lose federal funding.
Many were there in opposition. The public usually has three minutes to comment, but that was changed to two minutes -- a slap in the face to all who sat there to let their voices be heard. Clearly the supervisors did not seem to care.
What was not seen -- after the meeting one man stood up, walked to the podium and draped a $100 bill over the microphone, then slowly walked out. His statement was clear: Supervisors, you were just bought off.
