Strong words for Larry Phillips
It was hard to believe, King County Councilman Larry
Phillips scolding people in North Bend for NIMBYism, and the King
County Council for caving in to NIMBYism on the Three Forks Park decision.
Councilman Larry Phillips worked for years to pass a wastewater
treatment plan that will cost hundreds of millions of dollars that did not
need to be spent. Why? To please a few people in his district that did not
want more sewage treated at a plant in their area.
Councilman Larry Phillips is a champion of NIMBYism, in his
own district, but has the audacity to criticize others of NIMBYism. Some
old sayings come to mind, "The pot calling the kettle black," "It takes one
to know one," but the best description of what he had to say is hypocrisy.
