Re "Wrong Script, Ed Masry," Ventura County editorial, March 25.
Voters elected Thousand Oaks City Councilman Ed Masry and we expect him to represent us by (among other things) asking the hard questions and digging through complex development deals to root out both significance and loopholes.
Unfortunately, when these documents are not shared with Masry and the public until the eleventh hour, as was done with the Western Plateau / Dos Vientos development deal, it does not allow for fair representation.
Masry is making a difference, and his resolution requiring city staff to give council members legal documents at least three days in advance of when the council must ratify the documents is common sense. It should already be happening.
