San Luis Obispo County political leaders signed a code of civility Thursday, June 21, 2018, the first step toward embracing regionalism. The Board of Supervisors and mayors of all seven cities were part of a ceremony marking the agreement.

It doesn’t seem so long ago when people were respectful, courteous, thoughtful, considerate, even kind. It now requires the leaders of our local cities and county to swear by a code to feign these qualities. It did earn them an “atta-boy” from the League of Women Voters.

Women — the ones who stood on top of the heap of decency.

Where have all the flowers gone?

Bill Benica, San Luis Obispo
