"PARD'S Dubious Achievements"

Burma Williams of Pullman has thoughtfully outlined PARD's achievements for 2006. Her letter is found in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News on Saturday, December 30, 2006.
It is time to acknowledge the dubious contributions of T.V. Reed and his cohorts of the Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development:

-Effectively distracting both the residents and Pullman City Council from realizing Bishop Boulevard needs two traffic lights and several crosswalks now.

-Preventing employment for people who need a job, any job, now.

-Attempting to dictate to us all where we may shop and what we may buy now and in the future.

-Including in the name of their group "responsible development" without doing anything to bring other businesses to Pullman.

-Generally aggravating those of us who believe in free enterprise and know that Wal-Mart's conduct of business isn't all that different from the conduct of some other retailers in Pullman.

We know who stole Christmas - and it isn't the Grinch.

Burma does a fine job of pointing out some obvious areas where PARD has failed to help "responsible development" occur in Pullman.
