Vote No on G to protect property rights

Monterey Herald – Oct. 23, 2009

We first lived in Carmel Valley in 1958 and decided then that it would be a lovely place in which to retire. We purchased property in Mid-Valley in 1963 on which to build. We returned here in 1976 to build our retirement home. We were prevented from building immediately by the same bunch of "no growthers" proposing to "control" growth now. During the delay, building costs increased, costing us thousands more than planned.

If successful, the "no growthers" will control not just growth but many other aspects of your life.
As residents of Carmel Valley for more than 39 years, the Board of Supervisors has treated us more fairly and with more respect than the opportunistic "no growthers" who worked to deprive us of the use of our property for which it was zoned.

A "YES" on Measure G is irrevocable, and will create another bureaucracy that we will have to live with for the remainder of our lives.

A "NO" on Measure G does not preclude it from being resurrected in two years based on current financial data — not 2006 data — and an EIR.
