Letter: Project would help small businesses


I recently had my first bid to be on the City Council. I wanted to be a voice for small business and hard-working people. I was dismayed with a 20 percent voter turnout at the preliminary election and came in third out of five people vying for this position.

Lastly, I want to say that I cannot understand why anyone would not want state-funded road improvements, generating jobs and creating revenue for our city with the Brimbal Ave. project. It’s the larger businesses like Whole Foods that can afford these taxes. A stronger economy with less unemployment in out community will help small businesses like mine to survive. I will be voting “Yes” Saturday.

Please exercise your right to vote!
