Al:

I am none of those folks you mention. This is a terribly written initiative which will do irreparable harm to our city. It has already caused problems. It is full of unintended consequences, unless of course you believe as I do that Savemenlo's actual intentions are to make it so that nothing gets done in this town in the next thirty years.

Enjoy the view.
