"It will be the voters -- not the city council members, developers or special interests -- who will have the final say on whether this plan makes sense for our community." (Source: SunCal campaign ad.)
Alameda voters will not be deciding on what is best for Alameda Point; Alameda voters will be deciding on whether or not to approve developer SunCal's 25-year business arrangement with the city giving SunCal everything that it wants. SunCal wrote the initiative, SunCal paid to put it on the ballot, and SunCal is providing major funding for the political campaign to get it passed. The SunCal initiative is special interest legislation that mainly benefits SunCal, not the voters.
