Jim Krembas of Laguna Niguel is not a bad fellow. I almost voted for him. The fact that he signed away the Salt Creek Park to developers is not his fault. He didn't do it deliberately, he says.
Moreover, he claims that he read it but didn't understand what he was signing. (That's the kind of man we want running our local government. He's honest!)
Maybe he couldn't read it properly because he's nearsighted, which is not his fault, or maybe he didn't understand it because it was written in legalese which nobody understands (except lawyers and they don't tell, claiming privilege like a priest). So we can't blame him for not being up on legalese talk.
Perhaps he felt that Laguna Niguel had enough parks, and parks could cause mothers and fathers to bring their children and waste time when they should be working and being productive. (It's far-fetched, but it's an argument.)
