Prop J is the best way to put Del Mar back on track for the future

Prop J offers a bright future for Del Mar! I want the best for our village. Not just for me, but for future generations. I grew up here (my parents still live in town) and my husband and I are now raising three boys of our own in Olde Del Mar. The multi-generational richness of our village is one of the many things we love about it. Young families raising kids in Del Mar are a vital part of our community. You don’t always hear from us on political matters because we’re busy changing diapers, driving carpool, organizing snack duty and likely working too…  But we also care deeply about the future because that is the town our kids are going to experience, interact with and grow from.

I know I speak for a lot of young families when I say we are desperate to see some new life breathed into our main street. Revitalization is long overdue and crucial for the vibrancy and viability of our city now and for our kids. Prop J is the best way to put Del Mar back on track for the future. A “No” vote on Prop J is not a vote for the status quo as many opponents would have you believe, it’s a vote for continued deterioration. Much of our commercial strip is heading in the wrong direction and getting worse. We need to turn this around for the sake of the next great generation in Del Mar. Let’s create a town we can all be proud of, and a town our kids want to move back to when they become young families too. Yes on Prop J!
