Check the facts on Peters’ claims

It was disappointing to read former Morro Bay Mayor Janice Peters’ Viewpoint article on Nov. 3. I’m a fact-checker by nature. In the course of the current mayoral recall effort, I’ve checked claims made by both sides. I’d like to rebut three of Peters’ claims and show that Mayor Jamie Irons was true to his campaign statements and promises; the wastewater treatment plant is not vastly more expensive than originally quoted; and Peters misleads the public by presenting her “opinions” as facts.
