If light rail struggles in the Bay Area how can anyone think it will work here?

Susan Morse wrote a real Carmel letter. Initiatives come up because we have no faith in the legislature. Having said that, vote NO on 16. Tell PG&E to go pound sand.

None of the candidates for sheriff support the AZ law. Write someone else in.

Sorry-NO rail in Marina.Don't know where anyone gets the idea that it raises lease prices in areas where there are trains. Apartments are NOT the norm near proposed rail-homes are.Homes that will lose value,gather unreasonable noise, crowding and environmental impact(trash).Let's face it-time for proper management-not turning Marina into Los Angeles.Stop making Marina carry the brunt of the Bay's fiscal needs by creating plans that will destroy it in the future.It has a charm-and rare species of foliage and fowl that need protection, along with its residing neighbors.

Disneyland in Marina. Bruce Delgado is probably looking forward to photo ops and maybe a plaque with his name on it next to the Marina Station? Get a grip and balance your own cities budget before you drag us into this mess.
