A Reply to "Mr. Anonymous"

To anonymous:

First, if you have the courage of your convictions, make your case with facts, not two-word sound bytes with no backup. I have done my research in the public record before writing and stand by my comments. Secondly, sign those comments and don't hide in the shadows if you feel the issue is that important. Stand up and be counted.

Personally I would not support any organization that is anti-business, as business is the lifeblood of any community. What I would not endorse, however, is a narrow group of power brokers who own and operate a significant number of businesses in a given area and work toward giving themselves an express lane through the regulatory system.

There must be arms-length distance between those who request permits, licenses, variances and accommodations and those who are charged with reviewing those requests for the community. That is not the case presently, and the same would be true for any number of developers and income property owners in this community, not simply Mr. Jain.

Mr Foster, you express yourself very well. The Community Assoc. should exist for the wellbeing of the entire Community, not just a few members of it.

Thank you for putting this so clearly and intelligently.
