SB City Council policy designed to work for all people, not a chosen few

In regard to the Solana Beach election and Proposition B:

The literature I have received in the mail from the group that calls itself “Citizens for Solana Beach” continues to make me shake my head and feel upset to my stomach. Each claim made by this organization is untruthful and misleading. The most recent flier we received from supporters of Proposition B lists “Opponent Claims” they say are incorrect. “The Truth” is also stated. If you look, the source for each truth is quoted from literature written by the “Yes” people who have created this mess. In other words, the “Yes Group” is quoting its own writings to support its own facts. Don’t let this mislead you.

Our City Council has done its best to make a policy that will work for all of the people in our community, not a chosen few as is implied by the fliers sent in the mail by those in favor of the proposition. Compromises always need to be made when working with a group to make policy, whether it is within your family, your group of friends, an organization or a community. If you don’t like the compromise because it doesn’t fit what you want and you do not get your way, strong arm tactics, having a temper tantrum or starting an initiative that hurts an entire community are not appropriate ways to get change.

Please look at the facts and make your own decision.

Let me remind you that one member of our community has already contributed $55,000 to force this election and to fund the “Yes on B” campaign. Why? Again, I say, if you follow the money and those who are in support of this proposition, you will find those same people who were in support of the losers in the last City Council election. They didn’t win then. Please don’t let them win now!
