Rural residents greet Sims in Issaquah

  • Oct 2, 2008 at 11:21AM

More than 30 demonstrators met unsuspecting King County Executive Ron Sims (above, center) as he arrived for a meeting in Issaquah to discuss the recently-passed Critical Areas Ordinance (CAO), a group of ordinances that add additional restrictions to development. The demonstrators, many of whom have been directly affected by the ordinances and many who live in the Snoqualmie Valley, later sat in on a heated meeting. Robert Larsen (right photo, with sign), a landowner in Carnation, struggled to get his message heard during a question and answer period with Sims (right photo, background). Larsen said earlier in the evening, while waiting outside for Sims to arrive, "All of us are for reasonable rules, but this CAO is absolutely out of control."
