Pacifica Tribune, letters-to-the-editor, 4/4/12. "Jaquith appointment" by Stanley J. Brown
"Our City council has done a large disservice to the voters of Pacifica. Last Monday night they appointed Ginny Jaquith to serve out the term left by Mr. Vreland who resigned.
|Mori Point - geographical downtown Pacifica|
In the early 1990s Ms. Jaquith, along with Jon Galehouse, Mike Vasey and John Schneider, were recalled by the voters. Many have said it was because of the Lighting and Landscape tax. That was a big part of it. There were many other things as well. The council was controlled by The so-called Friends of Pacifica These folks were major players. They had an agenda and they stuck to it.
As today, anyone who tried to build in Pacifica was simply delayed, denied and appealed until the owner gave up. Remember Mori Point? Land made worthless until it could be grabbed (stolen) for open space. Ms. Jaquith was appointed. She now has to answer to no one. She can thumb her nose at those who removed her from office.
Also a big boo, also to the Tribune. Not a single word about Jaquith having been recalled. What is the problem here? From the cover story I was beginning to think she might be able to walk on water I thought you were a newspaper. I suppose you have to worry about income from the City."
