Update: Dory Waxman on pier issue

Newly elected at-large councilor Dory Waxman got back to us today on the pier issue (too late to go in the paper). Basically, she hopes that council finds "a solution to this sooner than later." She thinks that opening up a new request for proposals would be a step backwards after all the work that's been done over the last three years. Should the council move to re-open negotiations with Ocean Properties, the development company for whom Waxman did some community organizing last year, "I don't see myself recusing," from the debate, she said, despite others' wishes to the contrary. Waxman says she's meeting with the city attorney to determine whether or not she has an obligation to remove herself from any OP-related discussions, but at this point, her opinion is that "I have no legal conflict."
