I wish this were not so, but every time I see Joe Simitian's name attached to something, I think it must be over-reaching.

As for his requirement "Addressing the concern about construction impacts, Simitian made it a condition of the board's approval to have "as many as two public hearings after construction has started" if requested by a county supervisor in response to complaints from park users." I can just see this as him wanting to guarantee getting another swing at the public opinion piñata. A more self-serving politician I've never met ... and I used to work on Capitol Hill
