ALBANY MADE APPROPRIATE DECISION The article in the Recorder on the Albany initiative contains a statement that did not accurately capture what I told the staff writer [ "East Bay measure is no trivial matter," Aug. 7]. I did not suggest that anyone at the city was “to blame” for the decision to process the initiative. I feel today, even after the court’s decision, just as I did in June, that the decision to proceed with processing was an appropriate decision. It was not a question of a “good” or “bad” decision. It was a difficult decision for any election official to make. And, as the article pointed out, the decision reflects a respect for the initiative powers reserved to the electorate. It was inevitable that this matter would be decided by the court. The city made an appropriate decision, as did the court.
