Chris Connaway re locating child care center at Port

Published on September 8, 2017 12:01AM

I’ve appeared before the Planning Commission and now the Astoria City Council and watched them openly flout their own development code (“Astoria council approves Shooting Stars child center,” The Daily Astorian, Sept. 6). Take note, all you developers.

It even got humorous Tuesday night, when it was implied that talking to one’s baby in the womb, or singing to the baby while changing its diapers, makes one an educational institution.

What’s more disturbing to me is, after watching both bodies go through hand-wringing machinations over the safety of our homeless population, they turn around and show a cavalier disdain for the most vulnerable, our children, as evidenced in the councilors’ commentary.
