Anonymity hurts credibility



Congratulations on your new launch in Zionsville. I enjoyed reading the cover story on the future of development. The request for anonymity from “John Doe” is a great illustration of the many conspiracy theorists lurking in the shadows. While I strongly believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion, it is disappointing the most vocal critics refuse to identify themselves. I’m not sure what is to be gained by remaining anonymous – actually, I think it decreases their credibility.  Smart development and a balanced tax base are critical to the continued success of our cities and towns. The conspiracy theorists only hurt the process and contribute to the widely held belief Zionsville is not a friendly place to do business.
