A rising tide lifts all boats

Morro Bay



Recently I read a letter-to-the-editor from Dan in Morro Bay (“Bring in leaders who’ll continue local control,” May 10) ... and was downright confused. He threw out a lot of negative speculation, which left me a little befuddled! Using terms like “no control for public safety and community service,” “direct attack on tourism,” “cannot survive solely by recycling the internal revenue of its residents,” this guy Dan is either the campaign manager for Carla and/or Joan or simply not paying attention!

I am a voter, pure and simple, and most importantly a resident of Morro Bay. I want the interests of our city to expand further out than a block or two from Embarcadero! I have pot holes in my neighborhood large enough to throw you from a bike, but our tourism “zone” is doted upon.

We’re a harbor town, for crying out loud; the aphorism “a rising tide lifts all boats” was never more fitting. Make the city a better home, and the passion all of the residents have for community will shine throughout.

Jamie Irons, Noah Smukler, and Christine Johnson are for community (and tourism) and firmly against taxation without representation—a sadly common trend in Morro Bay.
