Just my Opinion--yes that is, JUST YOUR OPINION. Opinions are like posteriors-everyone has one and a lot of them stink. I notice that while you copied my entire post, you were not able to argue against a single point in it. Pretty weak. Well I'll argue with you--WE WON Jeff--Deal with it. If you still don't like it, come on up to the Rock and we'll tell you personally.

It's a shame that the Chamber of Commerce for Sunland Tujunga prevents our community growth cause of some of the members and their owning the small mom and pop stores that would be obsolete with such progression.

Tujunga would benefit from many businesses that have applied but been denied by the Chamber of "No change". We need new blood and younger blood in the Chamber and boot these old members who only think of themselves and their businesses which many of us refuse to give our business to.

Just take a look at Foothill......some of those store fronts have been vacant for several years........GOOD JOB CHAMBER!

Many of the past and current members of Tujunga/Sunland Chamber don't even live in our community and for that reason they should not have a voice in who goes where.

THANK YOU CHAMBER FOR KEEPING OUR COMMUNITY A EYE SORE FOR YOUR OWN BENEFITS AND SELFISHNESS.......BOOT EM ALL IN MY OPINION!

My statement also goes out to all the people that fought this so tooth and nail. Such a fight should be had to improve the community over leaving it with so many empty lots and store fronts. Btw so many responses from those without the Sunland or Tujunga under their names makes me wonder how many really in the community had their voices heard over the politics.

Whatever goes in there will be welcomed over that empty lot as long as we aren't adding another Low Income "drug selling hot spot" apartments.
