John Husing probably helped defeat the quarry with his arrogant, defensive attitude. His economic report was like a game of liar's poker.

Hello!!!! I live in the "Wine Country" and even though I don't own a winery or have anything to do with WINE! I don't want my lungs polluted! I was born and raised in a mining town, and even after they put in so called pollution restrictions, people are dying left and right from lung disease and cancer and they also live downwind about 10 miles from the mine. These are people in their 40's, 50's that have lived there al thier lives. Facts? Don't know what other facts you want, there were plenty given at the meetings.

I agree with all the concerned inputs on this thread. If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck, quacks like a duck........well, you know the rest. I WILL DEFINATELY REMEMBER THE NAMES BENOIT & ASHLEY WHEN IT COMES TIME TO VOTE. These scammers had no interest for the betterment of our city, other than Special interest money. "A Nation (city) of sheep breeds a government of wolves"!!!!

He said the influx of upscale housing in Riverside and San Bernardino counties over the last decade coincided with rising opposition to major mines, jails and similar employers — sources of blue-collar jobs in a region where nearly half the workforce has only a high school diploma. Duh! Yes exactly the point. NIMBY! One of the purposes of becoming EDUCATED is to be able to improve your standard of living and to be able to move to a better area. That's the American dream, YOU GET EDUCATED AND WORK YOUR ASS OFF TO LIVE A BETTER LIFE, THAT'S THE AMERICAN DREAM. Who wants to live by jails, mines, gangs, drug dealers, and what Obama dishes out, etc. Those who choose to have the Government support them then they get what the Government dishes out. Those who believe that Government is the answer are blind to the truth. There is more poverty and less education since America became a WELFARE COUNTRY. THOSE PEOPLE AND THEIR OFF SPRING ARE WORSE OFF THAN EVER THANKS TO THE DAMN LIBERAL SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT PARTY! WAKE UP PEOPLE, ARE YOU REALLY BETTER OFF BEING A PARASITE ON THE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS?
