At the recent Howard County Council hearing, as reported by the Baltimore Sun (Tower fans, critics heard):
He (Alan Klein) urged the council members to “protect the human scale of Columbia” and not “bow to special interests.”
Who is Alan Klein?
But Alan Klein of the Coalition for Columbia’s Downtown, a group trying to block the tower, which they see as large building that will dwarf the rest of Town Center, said his group has “almost 400 supporters” who “have no vested interest in the decision other than the quality of life.”
I hate to be the one to break it to Mr. Klein, but he represents a “special interest” himself, unless of course he really meant “people who disagree with us and therefore are evil.”
