Regarding your article “Developer Wars Continue” (Oct. 12), I have been following the proposed development of Foundry Row from the beginning. I am very much in favor of it and was extremely pleased when the County Council voted in favor of the rezoning. I have been hearing from several of my acquaintances about being approached in various areas of Baltimore County to sign the petition to put the rezoning on the 2014 ballot. However, the people who are soliciting these signatures are leaving out one very important fact: They are not telling people what this petition is really about.
One of my friends was misled to believe that she was actually signing in favor of Foundry Row. Another friend was approached in Timonium. She asked the person with the petition what she was doing soliciting signatures in Timonium. The response was that she was from out of town, did not know the areas involved and was working for Wegmans.
The parties involved in trying to get this referendum on the ballot are going about this in a very underhanded manner, and if this is not against the law, it should be. Kudos to Greenberg-Gibbons for being above board and for handling this with class, something David S. Brown Enterprises and the Cordish Companies do not have.
