In this election, Pacificans are voting for three open City Council seats. A new council could stop Caltrans' Calera Parkway project (i.e., widening Highway 1), hire consultants to study alternatives like roadbed sensors and synchronized traffic lights (much cheaper than widening the road), and hold public forums.
The old council majority did none of those things. Therefore, we urge you to vote for John Keener, Sue Digre, and Matt Dougherty, who oppose the widening. Note that several other City Council candidates who favor widening are backed by outside money, mainly from real estate organizations.
Here on Pacifica Riptide, we proudly endorse candidates we believe in, and we stand behind them and the public's right to know. We support free speech and freedom of the press, unencumbered by corporate political and economic agendas.
