Protect Yelm.org sums up this story simply:
“Steve Kleins 3/25/09, CITY CONTINUES TO APPROVE DEVELOPMENTS WITHOUT SUFFICIENT WATER RIGHTS has been updated with an audio file from the April 13, 2005 City Council audio record [where Mr. Isom put forth a no moratorium resolution in response to 2 citizens’ requests for a growth moratorium] and video of Klein addressing the Council [March 24, 2009]. Mayor Pro-tem Isoms rebuttal and Mrs. Fetterlys comments can also be heard in-context from the City Councils video.
The audio file is in response to Isoms comment that Klein had mis-characterization the moratorium on moratoriums that is clearly stated and passed in the audio from the April 2005 City Council meeting.
The definition of moratorium is a suspension of activity (source) and Isoms proposal and the City Councils subsequent unanimous vote was to halt any further talk of a growth moratorium is pretty much a ‘moratorium on moratoriums’.”
I wrote to Mr. Isom on April 3, 2009 and asked him to identify what he viewed as the “mis-characterization,” so I could publish his views as a correction on the Yelm Community Blog.
Mr. Isom accuses, then refuses – to respond! Doesn’t that speak volumes? HMMM!
Do you want 2,4,6 more years of this type of Council member?
HASN’T THE TIME COME FOR OTHER YELM RESIDENTS TO STEP UP AND SERVE THEIR CITY AND GET ON THE BALLOT FOR THIS FALL’S ELECTION – USHERING A CHOICE WITH NEW PEOPLE TO BRING A NEW DIRECTION & ACTION TO THIS COMMUNITY, JUST LIKE THIS COUNTRY DID IN THE OTHER WASHINGTON, WASHINGTON, D. C.?
