Ann Arbor Area Community News
The Ann Arbor News reports that prominant Treetown environmental activists who were originally supposed to be nominated for a government advisory board were denied yesterday.
Several months ago, the Ann Arbor Observer ran a feature on Cowherd and the Sierra Club-Huron Valley group. The article spectulates that Cowherd, a former Republican, has a tight grip on city politics, and could be responsible for the NIMBYist qualitys that come with Ann Arbor City Council regulations.
So will the snubbing of Cowherd and Hanson be a defeat for environmentalism in Ann Arbor politics, or will be a break away from homeowner-centerist NIMBYism and elitism?
