Driving to Napa last weekend, we noticed all the No on C signs were on vineyards. Having big money to propagandize this well written measure by means of out right false narratives, despite the court ruling, is a sign that facts don’t matter to the NO crowd, only the wine industry profits matter.
“Although these opponents had to pay to rewrite the argument for the voter pamphlet, they continue to use these false and misleading statements in their public campaign to defeat Measure C.”
Napa’s Measure C
EDITOR: Thumbs down for the May 6 article regarding the vote to protect watershed and oak woodlands in Napa County (“Fighting for the future”).
One thing that Staff Writer Bill Swindell conveniently left out is that the opponents of Measure C were successfully sued for making five misleading and false statements in the voter pamphlet.
It is also these same prevaricators who want the voters in Napa to believe that they “are not technically experienced to address these issues.” I don’t know about anyone else, but it sounds like Donald Trumpstyle mumbo-jumbo politics to me. Measure C is a well-written, well-thought-out initiative, and it should be passed.
There are several groups and coalitions in Sonoma County working to protect the same natural resources so vital to preserving the integrity of our beloved county. Environmental protection and preservation isn’t a wasteful concept. It is a necessity, both for our and future generations.
I applaud the efforts of these groups and the proponents of Measure C. It is in everyone’s best interest that Measure C pass in Napa.
