10 Dec Jonathan Cartu Declare: Editorial correct on library, transportation measures – San
Thanks so much for your excellent editorial proposing a vote on the library renovation and on a train in the rail corridor. You were exactly correct in clarifying that neither Measure S nor Measure D actually support the proposals for a library/garage/housing project downtown or a train on the rail corridor, both of which have created much controversy. It does indeed seem that folks have gotten caught up in these ambitious projects growing out of a lack of understanding of what these two measures actually do. A vote by the citizens of the city and county would clarify whether there was genuine support (and possibly funding) for these projects and remove a source of much division in Santa Cruz, not to mention a waste of taxpayer funds.
