My husband and I strongly support the formation of the Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary. It’s good for the county, good for business, good for the environment, certainly good for tourism and, if for no other reason, good that it would prohibit offshore drilling.
We feel our county would be lucky to have the sanctuary, because of the actual protections and advantages that come with national marine sanctuary status. There has been longtime local support for such a designation. So what are we waiting for? Let’s make the Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary happen.
