Measure N is meaningless
Tom Peters has a great letter to the editor in today’s Times-Standard which sums up the empty bunch of flag-waving that is Measure N.
By now, you may have noticed that there is no formal opposition to Measure N on Eureka’s ballot. The reason is simple. The measure is meaningless.
No, it will not produce the “Marina Center Now” as claimed on signs all over town. It won’t even change the zoning on the Balloon Track since the Coastal Commission has the final say there. So all that remains is a popularity contest bought and paid for by Security National (see its ads).
If SN had respected state law and the Coastal Commission’s requirements, the project could have been well underway. Instead it has chosen to flaunt the law and resort to meaningless publicity stunts.
Voting No on N will not delay or prevent the Marina Center just as voting yes will not speed the development. Send SN a message that Eureka will not be bought. SN must go through the regular lawful process like everyone else.
Vote no on N.
