Letter: Undisclosed money infiltrates measure election

PORC has used questionable campaign tactics before, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise to local voters that PORC is skirting state campaign finance laws to pass their deceptive Measure Q. I want to know, who's really behind all their outside money? It is a...

Letter: Misleading campaign information

We’ve been receiving lots of mailers against Measure Q that contain incorrect statements of its fiscal impact for San Benito County. The local Democratic Party says it would cause the county to lose $6.56 million annually “through 2035;” the No on Q campaign claims...

Letter: Everyone is lying about gas prices

Somebody is not telling the truth? I am sure that almost everyone who lives in Hollister noticed that over last weekend beginning on Sept. 29 and going through Tuesday Oct. 4, gas prices went up on average 35 cents and as much as $1...

Letter: Don’t be fooled by Measure R

Letter: Measure Q bad for services, jobs, farmers

Measure Q will be devastating to San Benito County, with huge negative impacts that will last for years, as Q’s restrictions would go until 2050. Why? Let’s look at some basic county facts and the consequences of Measure Q: Revenue: We are a very poor...

Letter to the editor: Give people a voice

First, there was the unprecedented move by the board and county to authorize $50,000 in taxpayer dollars to “educate” the public on Measure Q. Why should the county waste these resources when the voter pamphlet already covers the initiative?  And then it arrived, the fully...

Letter to the editor: Keep agriculture thriving

In considering how to vote on measure Q, it is important to realize the benefits of a viable local agriculture and the reasons for protecting and promoting it.  One interesting point of clarification in this discussion is that there is a difference between “farmers” and...

Letter to the editor: Keep our families safe

From the moment I first learned about the large-scale “Strada Verde development plan,” I had some worries that I would have with any big development: how it would impact our community?  I am not “anti-development,” but a large-scale development will inevitably have an impact....
