It's really too bad that companies and individuals who depend on increasing our local pollution levels to pad their profit margins have such influence . I guess it is just more proof that the almighty dollar rules the land.

You want to see what a Tea Party controlled state looks like? Look no further than the rapidly descending Kansas. It is a flaming wreck and a perfect example of what the Tea Party has envisioned for America.

I would put the aeration of Andrea Clark bird refuge way high on the list. It is absolutely the longest neglected issue of major impact that the city has postponed action on. I can't believe we even have to tell city leaders to get something done there. Try and keep a business open when employees and customers have to wear oxygen masks to even be there. Come on Schneider & co..... what the h ?

Insane, I'm so glad you associate big oil $$$$ with repugnant animal behavior. Finally we can agree on one thing.

Nice try but a Tea Party darling is probably blowing smoke when talking about coalescing estranged entities. The Tea Party has been all about banishing the middle of the roaders who would be necessary for the compromise and tolerance that Supervisor Adam postulates about here.

Thanks Tabatha for the map depicting the givers and takers in our state. The same is true for our county in that the south coast provides the lions share of revenue and the right leaning north county nurses the teat. I would so vote for a county split . Imagine those good ole boys trying to wrangle a dollar out of the north county oil producers benevolence society to build a jail or to fix a public swimming pool. Of course they won't have any problems funding schools or public safety cause Chevron has promised to take care of all that.

Validated swallows the hook line & sinker on the no fracking issue. Fracking is happening in all our neighboring counties. It is just a matter of time before they mount an assault within our county. On another note,when Santa Maria Energy brings their recently approved expansion on line they will be the county's single largest air polluter. 87,000 metric tons of greenhouse gasses released annually. Yes they will purchase offsets but that doesn't change the amount of air pollution they will create. Why is that ok?
On $2.4 Million Cuyama Pool Getting $1.7 Million Fix

Capps campaign costing $2 million is about 25% higher than the average House candidate spent this cycle. The $8 million dumped into the No P was an unprecedented amount of money spent on a small local initiative. Big difference and further proof that our system is seriously corrupted. You guys who pollute for a living should grow a conscience about the long term affects of what you do for short term gain.

Natty G , don't get too happy patting yourself on the back. You pro polluters will see a sustained effort by Measure P supporters to bird dog every application the drill baby drillers submit to expand their greenhouse belching, toxic brew injecting operations.

Why don't we let the north county oil producers benevolence society chip in for the repairs ? Hell, if they can afford to dump $7,000,000 into defeating P , what's another mil to take care of their bought voters? They promised to pay for schools and firefighters so why no help with the pool too ?
