You lost, Lamb, get over it

In your story about the Mitchell Park parking lot, I was a bit rankled by Stephen Lamb’s quote disparaging the process that led up to the decision. It’s obvious that Mr. Lamb is just a sore loser, mad that the vote didn’t go his way. I thought the whole issue to be a fine example of local politics: plenty of debate and dialogue with engaged citizens and advisory bodies.

I’m so tired of people complaining that their voices weren’t heard when something doesn’t go their way. Mr. Lamb and other parking lot opponents were certainly heard but many of us, including three city council members, simply didn’t agree with their position. Had it gone the other way, I would have saluted them on their victory. That’s how democracy works.

I have some advice for Mr. Lamb. Accept the decision, show some class and maturity and stop whining! Otherwise your campaign for mayor will be over before it begins.
