City Government Gags

When did the plate get so full? Our elected officials are once again planning an assault our most valued treasure: Our land!

Give away the Municipal Golf Course? Sneak it through. In the olden days, the idea of giving away city-owned land would have been met with such resistance our City Council would have been risking widespread demonstrations by the proletariat.

They gave away Las Positas Tennis Facility. They keep their plans for the Clark Estate so close to the vest it is tantamount to a gag order. Who knows what crazy ideas they will come up with there?

Just drive by Las Positas Tennis Facility any day. You can witness the degradation and blight that has been wrought by our acquiescence. Where are the players? Where is the vitality that once reigned at the property?

People of Santa Barbara, wake up! This runaway bureaucracy must be stymied with extreme prejudice. The transfer of city-owned land to private ownership must be stopped now! Do not let these temporary stewards of our city give away Santa Barbara.

How does the idea of giving away city-owned real estate get any traction? I mean any traction. I was born here and will likely die here as my father did before me. On my land.

We all love the paradise that has been bequeathed to us by our forefathers who undoubtedly expected us to protect it for future generations to come.
