Mike, what if anything will you do to resist the pressure by MTC, ABAG, and other unelected quasi-governments promoting high-density housing in Lafayette? Will you join other cities fighting them? Will you refuse their money? In all the candidates' websites and statements, I have only found one candidate, Traci Reilly, who even hinted at this crucial issue: "I believe we need to maintain greater local control of that growth and to stand up to outside agencies that are a driving force behind some of the development." I wish we had 3 candidates who would pledge to fight MTA and ABAG to the bitter end, until the state's voters wake up and terminate those unaccountable agencies.
