Campaigning for Zoning

Whew, I've finally finished my budget stuff for work, that took pretty much all my time the last couple of days and I haven't been able to do any blogging! But it's done for now, so I'm back.

Interesting to find a story about the Sandy gravel pit referendum in the business section of the Trib yesterday. The story was really pretty much about the latest turn in that issue, where a new "citizens" group has made its presence known, pushing in favor of the proposed development.

But is it really a citizens group? "'It's absolutely not a residents' group, ' said Robyn Bagley, a member of SOC [Save Our Community]. 'It's Friends of Boyer.'"

However, Molly Darrow, an organizer of Friends of Quarry Bend, says, "'It's insulting that [SOC] can insinuate that because we have a different opinion, it's Wal-Mart's of Lowe's opinion.' Darrow said she got involved because she felt SOC wasn't being honest with voters."

Well, who is? How can you tell? How many voters will actually take the time and trouble to find out before they go cast a ballot?

But how do you find out who is telling the truth? From what I can read on their various websites, neither side is giving complete honest information. So where should a Sandy voter go to find that information?
