Join citizens, residents, and voters at the Proposition S Town Hall Meeting this Tuesday, October 30th at 6pm. Ask questions, clarify concerns, and hear directly from those who helped author the proposition - and those who require safe access in Imperial Beach.
The opposition to Proposition S, a group of politicians known as the 'Citizens Against Prop S', were given the opportunity to name the day, the time and the location of the event, however, Dee Mclean, the group's spokesperson, responded by saying; "We are all volunteers, and do not have time to participate in a town hall meeting."
About two weeks ago, the Citizens Against Prop S mailed a letter to all voter households in the city. Out of the 14 names endorsing No on S - all 14 are politicians - one of which is a well known 'buddy' developer.
As a voter, you have to ask yourself - when or why - would politicians avoid public town hall meetings about such important topics that concern their city?
