Sen. Phi Griego, D-San Jose, continued to defend remarks he made while speaking on a local radio show earlier this year.
He spoke to members the local Independent Business Alliance gathering at the Ilfeld Ballroom at the Plaza Hotel on Tuesday.
On KNMX in the spring, he told an interviewer that merchants in the Plaza area want to turn Las Vegas into a Santa Fe or Taos — a statement that was quoted in the Optic.
Griego said his statements on the radio were misquoted, but didn’t explain how they were.
