I almost never attend Upland council meetings, being rather busy following Ontario and Pomona politics. Yet there were two good reasons for me to attend Monday’s Upland council meeting:
1) a controversial proposal for a social hall in a residential neighborhood and
2) the strong possibility that people would talk about Councilman Ray Musser’s comment at the last meeting about the “nonwhite” people at the inauguration who were “well behaved.”
Well, the first matter was withdrawn, it was announced at the meeting’s start, so that the proposal could be rethought. This confirms my theory that any city meeting in Upland is likely to be half as interesting than one would hope.
Despite that loss, the meeting was pretty entertaining. I got a whole column out of it. Which confirms my other theory, which is that Upland is still more interesting than one might think.
