I had a curious phone call this week—my caller ID said it was from Washington, D.C! The call was to encourage me to vote yes for Measure I. Now why would someone in Washington, D.C. be so concerned about what’s going on in Dana Point? That call, in addition to two cards from the California Republican Assembly, the Orange County Republican Party and the Lincoln Club saying that the Republican establishment wants me to vote for Measure I because they support it, leads me to believe that the backers of Measure I have some shadowy politics in the Dana Point waters, making things even more fishy than usual.
My reading of Assemblyman Bill Brough’s letter on the oversized mailing this week finds that the writer makes false accusations about the Measure H voter information and does not mention anything about parking requirements of business owners and building height regulations, which Measure I would change. What do you think?
I hope that you readers will read the ballot measures’ information and think carefully when voting. I believe we need to support our local interests and keep heights of buildings low and small town parking regulations consistent with the rest of the city’s rules, by voting Yes on H; No on I.
Assemblyman Bill Brough mailed color, 8-by-11, two-sided flyers to my home telling voters that a yes vote for “H” means the residents will be “satisfied with tattoo parlors, bead shops, and sober living homes being the only businesses looking to open in Dana Point.” This is not true in my opinion.
