commented on NY Times: Organized Labor "Looking to Washington State as a Model"
So on the continuation down this road, what about an initiative to cap public salaries at something line 20 times the average state public salary? Last I looked, that would put the cap somewhere around $750,000, granted, a little high in my book, but lets get the conversation started, right? Goldy, you have experience with the initiative process, is this feasible? Where do you suggest one starts with something like this?

commented on Sally Clark Says I'm Trying to "Intimidate" the City Council
Honestly, in a city where there is a serious shortage of housing inventory, I can't believe that the council continues to attempt to block anything that might begin addressing the housing shortage. The moratorium on the mother-in-law apartments was incredibly short sighted, and even if you personally would not want to live in one, doing the same to the aPodments is not the answer. We live in a desirable city and the only solution to keep it so is not to keep people out, but to increase the housing stock (of all types!) to allow more people to benefit from living in a vibrant city.

Can we have a rule about naming characters any form of Steele? I just can't take anything seriously after reading that.
