Says What We Call the Props 'Plain Irresponsible': We Think the Props Are 'Plain Irresponsible'

RECEIVED Fri., May 12, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I must admit that I'm really disappointed in your misrepresentation of Props 1 and 2. The dissenting opinions, especially of Prop. 2, are much more accurate and straightforward [Endorsements, May 12]. Proposition 2 only puts in writing what the city is saying (protect the aquifer) but isn't doing. The idea that tax dollars are being used to subsidize the destruction of the springs is insane and should not be allowed. This does not mean all construction in the watershed is banned but rather that we aren't having to pay for it. You have a huge impact on progressive voters, and your call on these props is just plain irresponsible.
