I very much appreciated Tom Johnson’s column (“Watching lawsuits priceless,” Nov. 30), but to be honest, I think you let Allan Beek off way too easy!
Mr. Beek is the same guy who thought that our Planning Commission and City Council were too inept to make development decisions and that the city of Newport Beach should go down the path of “Planning by Ballot box.” I voted against that, and the folks in the city with my point of view lost to the Greenlight hysteria. Once the votes were in, those of us with my point of view were silent.
Frankly, Beek is correct on the issue with which the City Council is either loaded with Greenlight homers or inept.
Now, because some of us think that we ought to get a say as to where our city hall ought to be located (planning by ballot box) our friend Beek is upset and wants to sue the city. Beek is a hypocrite and needs to be called out on this.
