Flip Flop: If Robbie Perkins put the proposed Noise Ordinance on City Council's agenda, why would he say it wasn't a good idea?

“The council made a very wise move
by not voting on what was proposed,”
Perkins said at the Downtown Residents Association meeting.


...Business owners at locations like Greene Street
say they will be negatively impacted,
and even though the ordinance is citywide, they say they feel targeted.

“I think we’ve got a problem,
and it’s basically been brought to light by the Greene Street bar
and what they do on the rooftop,” Perkins said."


Flip-flop (politics)

A "flip-flop" (used mostly in the United States),
U-turn (used in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland),
or backflip (used in Australia and New Zealand)
is a sudden real or apparent change of policy or opinion by a public official,
sometimes while trying to claim that both positions
are consistent with each other.
