While a dozen city leaders including Marty Blum, Steve Cushman, Dan Secord, and Grant House gathered on the steps of City Hall on Wednesday to promote a yes vote on Measure Y in the June 5 election, yet another mailer hit Santa Barbara mailboxes.
The latest mailing includes a letter from Michael Jordan (current member of the Planning Commission, but not identifying himself as such, only as a former Chair of the Creeks Advisory Committee, yet using the phrase, “This is a unique opportunity that I believe has benefits from both a planning point of view and a clean water perspective.”). A second letter is on NOAA letterhead from its Santa Rosa office. Also included is a color brochure from this well-funded group. All three pieces now include prominent recycled symbols when none previously did, as reported on Santa Barbara View.
