Time to rethink his new chairmanship. He was bought out by a special interest and missed the bigger picture regarding blight and litter caused by styrofoam. time to change up our leader in Sac.
Margret Bonetti has been touting her work with a radical San Francisco environmental group to stop a $120 million business investment in Salinas Valley as qualifying her for Mayor. She has chosen to get all her information from a group renowned for spreading mis-information, fear and hatred to get their way. She is now beholden to this extremist group just as radical Tea Party members are beholden to extremist Grover Norquist. If elected as mayor, she would be influenced by this extremist group on all business development decisions being made by City Council to help bring the City back and grow the business tax base and jobs we so desperately need. We do not need extremist influences at such a critical time in our recovery, we need open minded leaders that can build consensus and attract business. Common sense should prevail when we go to the ballot box and select a leader, not a special interest groupie or a candidate with motives other than our community's best interest.
Moss Landing is one of our true jewels in the north county. Too bad what was considered romantic in the 1950's has changed dramatically in 60 years. The large brown stain on the banks of our precious Elkhorn Reserve seemed ok then, but is such a detriment to the beauty of the reserve now. That stain, right on the shore of our Elkhorn Slough< belongs to the romantic Mr. Calcagno and is the sewage byproduct of his large dairy. You can bet this type of activity would have NEVER been allowed here today. Where does all this cattle waste go? into the groundwater, or over the banks of his holding pond when it rains? This is just a reminder that everything beautiful has a dark side. We will continue to love this community with all our passion, but not without seeing the whole picture. B. Kierns
