  1. Rick Jones was a good choice for the Planning Commission. It will give him a platform to run for city council. I would just advise him be careful who He aligns himself self with?

  2. Fremont Planning Commission , Hmmm that’s just like military intelligence. It doesn’t exist.
    West, maybe it was subconscious but it was accurate. The Planning Commission ain’t about planning. In fact we could do away with the commission and I guaranty no one would notice.
    In fact I’ll show up at the city council meetings when the developers need their housing projects rubber stamped. The commission is nothing more than a stepping stone for the politically ambitious .
