Letter (Bruce Greggo): Give the public answers regarding the Measure T lawsuit

First of all, thank you for printing my recent guest column regarding the Loop Road issue. I read in a recent Tribune that Jason Drew, Chair of the Nevada-based chamber (Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce), claimed my letter had a misstatement.

The paragraph in question stated: “I am the attorney who opposed Jason Collin’s attempt to prevent Measure T from being placed on the ballot. Mr. Collin’s attorney argued that the measure was unconstitutional on its face, and had other serious defects that justified it not proceeding to ballot. The reality is the court did not agree with Mr. Collin’s attorney and allowed the measure to proceed to ballot.” This statement is true. It is undeniable that the motion brought by Mr. Collin’s attorney to stop Measure T from being placed on the ballot was denied by Judge Wagoner.

Mr. Drew, instead of trying to place a “spin” on my column, why don’t you tell us something factual? Who are the financial contributors supporting the legal action to defeat Measure T? Tell us the amount that each contributor has made to date to support this litigation.

Tell us why the money spent in this litigation against Measure T, where Jason Collin has used his standing as the Plaintiff in this litigation to support his candidacy for City Council, has not been disclosed as required by the Fair Political Practice Committee regulations. Finally, tell us why you, your organization and Mr. Collin seek to disenfranchise the Voters by seeking to defeat Measure T. I am sure the public would be interested in your answers.
