This is very difficult news to swallow considering what is at stake here in Petaluma. Chris Albertson stated while campaigning, "I am confident that we can bring in environmentally friendly and well designed projects" -yet, it is obvious from statements on his website that he supports both of these two large retail shopping centers in Petaluma. He seems to be inclined to contradiction on many issues.
Does he live here or not? Does he support environmentally friendly development project or not?
These are very important planning decisions that are being made today for Petaluma's future -it's a shame we have untrustworthy city council members making these decisions.
So I guess this means, the issues surrounding these large projects aren't really about "shopping" or having a new Friedman's, is it? I heard that this is the fourth project in the past several years that Friedman's was said to have been a tenant. After pulling out of the Target project over at Kenilworth, it's pretty obvious that this is more politically driven than anything else.
