11:45 p.m. — Why No Monorail Parties?

Posted by on September 20 at 23:45 PM

Wondering Why There Weren’t Any Monorail Parties?

It’s because monorail board incumbents Cindi Laws and Cleve Stockmeyer were at what one monorail supporter at Jan Drago’s party called “the monorail board meeting from hell.” (Monorail opponent Henry Aronson, at Richard McIver’s party, had a different take: He described the meeting as “great.”) The board, under pressure to come up with a measure for the November ballot to circumvent the up-or-down monorail referendum on the monorail Mayor Nickels proposed last week, reportedly bickered and threw out tons of random ideas but ultimately failed to come up with a solution. The board had better get its act together fast: They’re supposed to come up with a proposal by tomorrow.
