Thanks to the efforts and wisdom of the people of Santa Monica, the City Council was forced to reverse its vote on approving the Hines development project. The overwhelming signatures forced the City Council to either amend their vote (held without the public invited) or it would be placed on the ballot.
So Gleam Davis, a supporter of the Hines development project, decided to change her vote from yea to nay. The article states she did so because she was “moved by the public protest and acknowledging the politics of the situation, changed her vote.”
It’s way too late to backtrack now because I and others have a long memory. In the next election, Gleam Davis is toast. Too little, too late.
