STEPHANIE HARVEY, Dana Point
In his October 23, 2020 letter to the editor, Mark Zanides suggests that the out-of-town real estate development interests that financed mailers opposing City Council candidate Gary Newkirk expect support from Mike Frost if he wins the District 4 City Council seat.
I have been Mike Frost’s Lantern Village neighbor for over 10 years. In that time, I have watched Mike volunteer countless hours serving on the neighborhood and city committees to ensure that our neighborhood and city will blossom into that lovely coastal village we all imagined when we moved here. If elected, he has promised to take a fresh look at all zoning regulations affecting the Lantern District and the city and work toward making any changes necessary, including reductions in building size and density, to achieve that vision. Nobody that I know has as much enthusiasm for this community than Mike. Nobody is more committed to making Dana Point a better place for all of us to live, work and play.
If these mysterious out-of-town interests expect Mike to blindly support big box, unfettered development in Dana Point, they will be sorely disappointed. What they—and all of us—will get instead is the expert, thoughtful, and enthusiastic service of a dedicated public servant who places the well-being of all residents above anything else. Please join me and the hundreds of other District 4 neighbors and friends proudly displaying Mike Frost campaign signs at their homes and businesses, in voting for Mike Frost for City Council on November 3.
He knows us, and we know him.
