Mike McGinn will back the city council's decision to move forward with the downtown waterfront tunnel project, the P-I reports, if voters approve his bid for office. "This doesn't change my opposition to the tunnel, it's just my recognition of what the mayor's job is," he said.
That, of course, was Oct. 18, 2009, on the campaign trail. After he was elected the following month, he opposed the council's decision to move forward on the tunnel project every chance he got. People thought he was a liar.
But yesterday, he renewed his trust with voters.
Mike McGinn will back the city council's decision to move forward with the downtown waterfront tunnel project, the P-I reports, if voters approve the screwy August tunnel referendum. "In a democracy, you're supposed to listen to the people," he said.
As you can see, it's a total turnaround for the mayor and everyone can believe him this time.
Okay, everyone but that P-I reader who commented "What a lying sack of old rusty bike parts!"
