In response to Steven Moss’ letter (“Do Our Dana Point Officials Get It,” Dana Point Times, March 7-13, Vol. 7, Issue 10), once again, the vocal minority seeks to impede a good project by raising bogus issues and talking trash about Mayor Lisa Bartlett. Our mayor is terrific and this kind of slimy innuendo reveals a basic ignorance by the writer.

By the way, what ever happened to the concept of American property rights that allow a property owner to exercise the right to responsibly use the parcel they have invested in? I guarantee you that Mr. Moss would be the first one to start howling if anyone tried to tell him he wasn’t allowed to use his property as he desired.

Do we need another hotel? Why not?

An attractive hotel at the gateway to Dana Point—instead of the seedy urban blight that exists there now—is a great idea that the vast silent majority in Dana Point would happily support.

Instead of asking “do we need another hotel,” I would ask Moss why he thinks we need to have another fast food joint and a trash strewn corner for transients to loiter at, because that is what currently greets residents and visitors at the southern entrance to Dana Point.

Thank you Mayor Bartlett and keep doing the excellent job you do.
