I take issue with your endorsement of Carol Patton for City Council.
On Monday, Oct. 1, The League of Women Voters held a forum at town hall will all three prospective candidates. Carol Patton stated that she is still in favor of the roundabout and redevelopment. When she responded to the question about annexation of island neighborhoods, Smith Flat and Motor City, her answer was, “Why wouldn’t people want to be part of such a wonderful city?”
Well here is why:
1. My property would be rezoned from R1 to commercial, would this help me on a sale of my home? I think not!
2. The people now in the county would have to get rid of their farm animals if they were annexed. Loss of rural life.
3. I have a 50+-year-old septic tank; if it fails the county would let me rebuild it, the city would make me hook up to the sewer. Big cost to me, plus monthly charges forever.
Placerville needs to be more forward not backwards; therefore I feel Carol Patton is the wrong person for City Council.
