Kudos to mayor

Paso RoblesSeptember 23, 2013 

I applaud Atascadero Mayor Tom O’Malley for his foresight in dealing with the low water levels at Lake Atascadero.

Now is not the time to spend half a million dollars to pump more water, only to see it evaporate. Now is the time to dredge and repair the lake shore. A deeper lake and restored lakeshore provide future benefits and longterm health to this important city icon.

Looking to the future is what a great mayor should do. Exacerbating and extending the lake’s current dilemma is shortsighted at best.
