On NBC 7:
"Really the disappointment came from the campaign against it. The folks who were behind it were found to be using some misleading factual information. And, you know it's not terribly hard to get people to vote against growth in a city like Encinitas, but I felt like they took the rhetoric to a new level. They used a lot of just misinformation and lies and half-truths to scare people into believing that the plan was something that it really wasn't."Gonzalez gave no specifics about what the alleged "misinformation and lies and half-truths" were, or who "found" opponents "to be using some misleading factual information."
NBC 7 interviewed Gonzalez and Measure T supporter Catherine Blakespear at length, apparently making no effort to get the No on T side of the story. Measure T opponents have offered to work with the city to come up with a plan that complies with state law and, unlike Measure T, actually contains affordable housing.
