Right to Vote to be Described by Friends of Kerry Miller

Another rumor has surfaced.

The City of Encinitas hired these dudes to describe the Right to Vote Initiative.
Rumors are swirling way out of control that these guys are shills. People wake up! We have a new council majority and straight shooting city manager. Ask questions before running off to conclusions. Maybe these guys were the only ones available on short notice.

In 34 more days the possible penalties that can be imposed on the City of Encinitas for snubbing the Coastal Commission could reach $300,000. According to city staff the penalty can be $6,000/day. For the last 10 years citizens demanded a cleaner city hall where decisions were done openly, by the rules, and in compliance with the law.

Single Source News Flash
Members of the Coastal Commission have appealed the City Council's apparent defiance of the Coastal Commission, an anon source reports to the LB. (Hoax?)

Don't like the current laws? Accept them or work as a citizen in the effort to change them. Don't pick and choose laws and hold them up only when convenient. Certainly, don't see the Coastal Commission as a savior one day when they are on your side and as intrusive and overreaching because they expect to be part of a process that you want to rush through.

Those who claim practicality as a justification for cutting corners on the open processes of infrastructure changes,  sorta justify 3/4th of everything Jerome and Danny did that people said were dishonest.

Democracy is rarely an efficient mode of governance.

In a democracy it is not dishonest for an elected official to seek different goals than you. Dishonesty arises in the process leading up to and during the decisions (or acts of omission).

If it is worth risking $300K for the good cause of a dedicated bike lane, then what else is worth $300k?
