More Information Needed

Monterey Herald, Nov. 5, 2006

Dear Editor:

In reference to your story of Nov. 1, Carmel Valley incorporation advocates, specifically attorney Michael Stamp, want to find out about the "subtext" regarding LAFCO's decision. They had better be careful because subtexts exist everywhere.

For instance, who is pushing for the incorporation and why? I see two kinds of advocates: one group just wants to vote and another group (the inner circle) has a commitment to incorporate. Is this agenda altruistic, i.e. protect the rural character of the Carmel Valley? Is this agenda pushed by people who love government and see jobs for themselves in the future? Is this agenda driven by people who have a future financial interest? One has to ask what drives people who wish to change the status quo. The first step is to "follow the money." That is not a trivial subtext.

Personally I am willing to vote provided I have unbiased information and provided that, if the vote is again incorporation, I do not have to face the question every two years.
