Last night, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Barbra Williamson and her family, friends and supporters. They are truly a dynamic group of people and it was a real pleasure. Barbra’s entire family is very friendly not to mention engaging and passionate about the issues. I have zero doubt that my vote for Barbra Williamson for Simi Valley City Council is the right one.
I’m often asked what my purpose and goal is with this website. The answer is simple: to inform the community of issues they may not be fully aware of. Interestingly, this process has allowed me to educate myself as well and change my opinion on high profile matters. For instance, a conversation I had last night with Barbra Williamson and her friends completely turned me around on the Waste Management Landfill Expansion plan. That conversation, along with hours of obsessive reading afterward, opened my eyes.
My point? If our elected officials can’t sit down and have a drink with the people they represent every now and then, we’ll never fully understand the issues or the reasons for their positions. Sure, they can’t sit down with everyone… but if they sit down with someone like me, the word will spread. We really need more people like Barbra Williamson!
