It should concern us that our newest city representative failed to object to the introduction of an amendment to our outdoor lighting code.
Mr. Tolbert publishes elpasonaturally.com, a worthwhile environmental blog. In the past he has written in favor of supporting the so called “dark skies” initiative.
Yet in his very first meeting it appears as though he allowed a proposed change to our outdoor lighting code that would exempt the city from its requirements.
Watching the video, the first reading of the proposed ordinance change was passed unanimously and without comment.
What happened here?
Let’s hope that he just wasn’t up to speed yet and that he has not been compromised already.
We deserve better
