Position Papers
It Isn't Easy Being Green
In my view, the most effective way to improve our environment is to maintain at a high level those City facilities we all use in daily life. In that context, you might classify me as a true environmentalist.
WATER, "We have met the enemy..."
San Luis Obispo has the highest water rates in the area except for Santa Barbara Our current water problems remind me of the words of that famous sage, Pogo. "We 'has' met the enemy, and he is us."
Based on Councilman Romero's track record, it seems that he really is a genuine environmentalist...and a candidate who cares!
