Pacifica.city

Were City Councilmember Mary Ann Nihart's and city computers really hacked? Is there a conflict of interest between Nihart's federal employment and her previous endorsements? What is the federal government's position on all this? Click the link above for details on this bombshell, and see the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee (SMCDCC) letter to Nihart below. SMCDCC has endorsed Deirdre Martin for Pacifica City Council.

Why Reinvent the W(heel)?

No1

Riptide contributor Alan Wald has been checking out "No on W" logos used against other "Measure W" ballot propositions around the country. Alan says his top choice (above) for possible use against Pacifica's Measure W (the quarry initiative on the November ballot) "is concise, catchy -- and green." Alan notes that the above logo was created by opponents of the Measure W outdoor pot ban in Nevada County, California, last June. The logo helped defeat the measure.


Library in Limbo: Measure N NOT "Thoroughly Vetted"

Fellow blogger Dan Stegink of Pacifica.city forwards correspondence from the state (see links below) about the controversial library funding measure on the November ballot. Dan asked the state: "The proposed argument for the new library (Measure N) states that the California Coastal Commission (CCC) has thoroughly vetted Measure N: 'The Coastal Commission and third-party experts thoroughly vetted Measure N to ensure our library is safe from flooding and sea-level rise.' Is that accurate?" The CCC said NO (see the CCC letter at the first link below).
