Misleading Signs on Measure B

When you do not have a cogent political argument, the best tactic is to confuse people. You may have noticed signs advocating "No" on Measure B in order to “Protect Our Plaza.” Allowing large hotels to dominate our beautiful plaza will "Protect Our Voice" and “Protect Our Neighborhoods”?  Really?  I can only presume people who have these signs in their front yard do not understand the implications of Measure B or have incorrect information regarding the measure.

 

I strongly encourage Sonoma citizens to read the text of the measure and vote their conscience.  Voting “YES” on Measure B stops big hotels in Sonoma and ensures we do not have the large corporate hotels that blight neighboring cities like Napa.  Voting “YES” on Measure B will support limited growth and retain Sonoma’s small town charm so we can continue to attract visitors who enjoy the wonderful community spirit that exemplifies Sonoma today.


 Vote “YES” on Measure B!

You know Chris as a bank regulator, banker and bank consultant for 25 years having worked commercial real estate construction deals in nearly every city I've seen hundreds of projects. Feasibility is what we're talking about and I've spent more than 17 years in Sonoma and I've been active in local politics and plead to City Counsel on a variety of topics mainly banking. Financing construction and development of projects is something I've spent my life's work in. What exactly qualifies your opinions or expertise? I do care deeply about Sonoma long term and even when I'm gone.

I have a feeling Sonoma is about to be out on the map in a bigger way very soon with this Measure, the cronyism and the Sonoma Valley Bank failure fallout. A Tale of Two Valleys all over again perhaps?
