I support Mayor Konopa in her endeavor to keep Albany sane and for the people. I hear Oregonians say how much they hate California and big cities and this measure for more residences on existing lots will change Albany forever.
Once you start crowding people together it does not stop and we will be living on top of each other. I love the openness of Albany and the space we have to explore and live without the crowed streets of a big city. People need space.
Think about this measure twice before condemning Mayor Konopa. She is correct in vetoing the measure and should be applauded.
