Tim Johnson, publisher and editor of the Cascadia Weekly, correctly blasts our wimpy Bellingham City Council for politely lying down in the mud to allow the Port of Bellingham to roll over them with their absurd waterfront plan.
He writes, “In the end, City Council failed in its most crucial role to represent the citizens of Bellingham and protect their interests.”
The three port commissioners, dominated totally by outgoing Scott Walker and Executive Director Rob Fix, have rammed the plan forward with little care for public concerns and no concern for putting the city taxpayers in deep debt for decades to come. All to benefit private developers and not the public.
