Residents should decide height initiative

To the Editor: 


The League of Women Voters urges a no vote on Measure P with their signs posted on utility polls and median strips throughout the city of Berkeley. How many of the league’s members actually live within the shadows that will be cast by the high-rise buildings they advocate constructing along Shattuck, San Pablo and University avenues? Is this just another case of “do as we say, don’t do as we do”? Will neighbors now living in these areas, and who will be losing sunlight and views, have any say in this matter?
