"I think their newest huge building is an absolutely awful example of hilltop development, and a prime example of what any city/county development code in this area ought to prohibit."From the May 18 edition of the Whitman County Gazette:
"Ugly" SEL Project: Hosick requests May 1 letter to be withdrawnI'm not sure how you "overspeak" in a letter that theoretically you take time to proofread before you mail it in, but whatever. It's out there. No apology or withdrawal will hide Hosick and PARD's left-wing, no-growth agenda.
Pullman resident Cynthia Hosick, who called Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories' newest building construction "an absolutely awful example of ugly hilltop development" in a recent letter to the county commission, revised her letter after an apology to SEL.
Hosick described herself as a member of the League of Women Voters and Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development, but wrote as an individual. In a letter to the county commission, read at Monday's commission meeting, Hosick wrote, she "overspoke" in her previous letter and requested its withdrawal.
Hosick's first letter was read into the minutes of the commission's May 1 meeting.
Her revised letter spells out support for the proposed changes to the rural residential ordinance, including hilltop development in the agricultural zone, but excludes the original comments on SEL's new development at the Pullman Industrial Park.
"We can't unring the bell," Commmissioner Jerry Finch said.
Hosick also wrote she apologized to Ed Schweitzer of SEL, that he accepted her apology, but stated a withdrawal of her comments ot the county commission was unnecessary.
Who Hosick and her PARDners really owe an apology to are the citizens of Pullman for costing us nearly half-a-million dollars and wasting nearly two years of the city government's time. Give up your union-funded appeal now!!!
