Re-elect Mayor Irons

Morro BayMarch 24, 2014 

Your editorials March 16 about Sunshine Week in conducting public business reminded me of one of the most important reasons why I support Jamie Irons for mayor of Morro Bay. In the short time he has been in office, he has made our government more open and more responsive to ordinary citizens, not just the ones who are connected. I like the fact that Embarcadero lease negotiations are more open now to public scrutiny, like they ought to be. I like the fact that Irons promoted the goal-setting workshops last year, and that his actions have been consistent with those citizens’ goals. I like the way he led the modification of council procedures to make public comment more effective. I know there’s going to be a lot of bluster about “transparency” in this election, but I point out that it has been Irons who has adhered to both the spirit and the letter of the Brown Act. We need to re-elect Mayor Irons.
