Re: "Developers require supervision" (letter, 2-18).
This is a lot of claptrap. In four years on Ruston's half of Point Ruston there is not a stick showing above ground. Tacoma's half is built out, and Point Ruston is a big taxpayer to Tacoma.
Ruston's mission as announced in 2006 was for a "bedroom community," and it has not changed. In 2009 there was a huge effort by Ruston's town council to have Ruston annexed into Tacoma. This coincided with unrelenting attacks on Point Ruston by the Town of Ruston that went on for years.
