Pollock Pines is being hyped as the poster child for these community “visioning” workshops. The only chance of defeating the action plan is if a large number of community people vocally express their discontent and distrust on Monday. Otherwise, the illusion of “consensus” will carry. That is all they need to go forward. Without it, they’ll be forced to find another way. A “no” from Pollock would carry meaning. Please come to our meeting on Monday, March 25 at 6 p.m. at the Pollock Pines and Camino Community Center.
Supervisor Santiago, Mr. Ward and Ms. Harper withheld many truths — and even if the New Economy may have some valid points, it was brought to us through deception. Ms. Harper is on/or part of many of these advisory boards of people no one elected. There is no way that an advisory board can come out of Pollock Pines without being tainted by her or her club. We were told at the meeting that people could not use this advisory board as a push for their group — yet out comes this article.
“All this is 100 percent their ideas. We’ll put it together into a report that will serve as a launching pad for the March 25 meeting.” This whole article is slanted. Ms. Harper is presented as some kind of hero that came into our town on a white horse. We have always had events here … and some of what she takes credit for wasn’t even run by her. She writes about a CEDAPP event in such a way that the group gets all the credit. Many groups and their money run the majority of events. I know, I’ve been at the meetings.
Santiago at the outset: “These are generated by you, the residents, and will establish rules of fairness, honesty, equanimity, consideration of future generations and other important, timeless values.” Honesty? I don’t think so.
