Means: Say what you mean

Original post made on Jan 31, 2008

When incoming Mayor Tom Means told the Voice what his goals were for the year, he didn't talk about fixing major problems like transportation, crime or housing. He said he simply wanted to make sure council meetings didn't run late into the night, and that the council spoke with clear direction.

Lets speak clearly, as Professor Doctor Tom would say....

"though some developers say its requirements increase the cost of housing."

They mean mean "decreases developer profits" who, in general, could care less about LEED certification. They need to start caring, at least in our city.

AND let's not let Tom devide our council. support Jac, MArgeret, Ronit, don't let Tom railroad you into thinking they don't speak clearly or, don't know what they are talking about.

I believe Means could recognize & open up to understanding councilmembers who are trying to compromise between residents & developers to decide a smart path. Examples of careless development abound, jumbling cities of the character that brings us there.

At a glance, LEED lays out a point system by which council & developers can aim and whose residents' interests are represented in a green background. I wish I had known about LEED to emphasize it for Mayfield.
