  1. Robert Parry? We have a guy who stated that property rights trump wilderness access and preservation rights on the preservation committee?

    2. Actually, I said almost exactly the opposite. Go watch the video of the Council debate. I very clearly said that the taxpayers have a right to access the Wilderness. I very clearly said that Monrovia's historic character and ambiance are vital. And, I specifically said that what one person does to his property impacts everyone else's enjoyment of their property. I am a strong advocate of preservation (though I've never heard of "preservation rights.") and consider it vital to our identity and local economy. But, I am also not willing to violate people's rights or the law to accomplish it.

      Both of these matters can be effectively addressed with collaboration and cooperation.

  5. To the person who is making charges of illegalities. If there is some evidence you want to present, I'll consider it, otherwise I will delete such posts.
