SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
My husband and I enjoyed a pleasant Sunday afternoon at the Dana Point Art Walk on May 15. The artwork was a pleasure to view, and the artists were congenial and enthusiastic about the event and the lovely Del Prado, Lantern District venue.
The Art Walk was marred, however, by a group of sign-toting, attendee-accosting group of Ballot Measure H supporters.
My husband and I were approached by a sign-waver, and when we said we were not interested in discussing the ballot measure, he made a dismissive gesture at us and stalked away. We were happy to be rid of him because we felt the event was an inappropriate place to politick.
The city, the local business community and the artists put on a great show for Dana Pointers and out-of-town guests, which was, unfortunately, rudely interrupted by a partisan group. They won’t deter us from taking pleasure in our city’s delights, and we look forward to more events planned for all to enjoy.
