The headline of the story in today’s Citizen was:
“Nude beach won’t be on ballot
Supporters urge commissioners to decide issue”
but I think the following single paragraph is all one really needs to see the level of discourse and philosophical debate attained with regularity at our city commission meetings.
“A lengthy and heated discussion preceded the vote, with mayoral candidate and nude-beach proponent Sloan Bashinsky calling Commissioner Bill Verge a “weenie” for suggesting that the voters, rather than the commission, make the decision”.
