A big Thank You to Lani, Fran, and Bill for all the hell they went through to help maintain a strong and a non-rubber stamp style planning commision. You guys did a hell of a job and to all the people who voted down the zoneing issue, hats off to you as well. Not only did it preserve a piece of our island , but most importantly it let those in charge know the voters will not put up with anymore politics to benefit the few at the top. I believe this website helped as a tool to bring the public up to speed on what was going on, and in the long run it will help keep our officals on the same track as its voters. This blog got alittle heated at times, but thats what its for and now we can let the smoke clear. Bill and Fran, Thanks again.
Lani White dont you dare step down like Mike did at the fire station. By staying your course our political process at the meetings will always walk on pins and needles and stay in check. Theres a new sheriff in town.
Give them hell LANI WHITE

I want to publicly thank Cheryl Gahn. That letter she read at the meeting sure hit the mark.
She decided to act on facts and not emotion. She has a good moral compass and an independent mind.

What were the vote totals on the zoning issue? Will the removed planning board members be reinstated?

The vote was 46 for and 59 against a rezone.

One way that they could be reinstated would be if they contested the decision of the "Gang of Three" on the township board. By contested, I mean, petition the court for a decision on the legality of what the township did. If it was found that the "Gang of three" broke the law, the planning members might be reinstated.
