Protect Our Water


The airwaves are being filled with these titled spokespersons telling us our economy and the sky are going to fall if Measure P passes. The contributors are required to be identified, but we need to know how much these titled spoke persons are being paid for their distortions and half truths. The amount of money they are being paid should be divulged so that the public can best judge the sincerity of their comments. The sky is not going to fall, but if Big Oil defeats Measure P, fracking will be on the rise. Don’t be duped, Santa Barbara County. Vote “yes” on Measure P. Our precious water supplies need protecting.
