Dan Pike, the Mayor of Bellingham, has long been known to be a pathological liar. This video is one of countless examples of Dan Pike lying, with calm confidence, to the public. In this example, he tries to persuade the Bellingham City Council to agree to a framework for waterfront development on 4/13/09 and 4/20/09. This framework agreement is the prelude to the Master Plan for the Bellingham Waterfront. A few Council Members expressed concerns about the agreement and the public process leading up to this meeting. (No public comments were allowed at the meeting. The public did not even see the agreement materials before the meeting.) The "Framework" would effectively lead to the destruction of many historic buildings on the site. It also confirms that a mega-Yacht marina should be on the site. And, finally, it confirms a development plan that involves capping, as opposed to the removal, of extraordinary amounts of mercury (e.g., 12,000 PPM of mercury) and other TOCs (Toxins of Concern).

Both Dan Pike and at least one City Council member made statements that have been proven false. Definitively false.
