As you know from your attendance at the meeting in Nogales re: the Sopori ranch and Las Mesas project, the community in attendance overwhelmingly opposed the projects yet the pro-developers Supervisor Bobby Damon and Board Chairman Manny Ruiz voted for the amendment to the Comprehensive Plan and the with the aforesaid supervisors voted 2-1 to amend the county's Comprehensive Land Use Plan....

I have been researching the project and have found it very interesting that the principles are never referred to by name and there appears to be invisible spokespersons for the project.

I can't help but wonder if a conflict of interest may exist between Mr. Ruiz and comrade who supported the proposals. In other words, are they financially involved or have financial interests in Sopori Ranch, Las Mesas, First United Realty, subcontractors or are one of the 12,500 investors?

I just came across the above comment. I am part of the group running the referenda to overturn that decision of the supervisors. Would you like to help? Have you tried to research any of the questions that you raised?

I'll be voting against Sopori as First United doesnt care about polluting the Santa Cruz River by allowing 1,000 cars per day to cross through the river at Palo Parado. Don't buy their friends of the environment B.S.
