Big Business Safeway — part of the 1% — has money, clout, connections & pays top dollar for management. Safeway paid its’ CEO $11 million in 2011.
Any CEO such as Safeway’s who is paid $11 million must be worth that much to the company probably knows who to talk to and which campaigns to contribute to concerning the upcoming election for 2nd District.
So, will Safeway readily get the necessary Santa Cruz County governmental approvals to drastically alter the Rancho del Mar shopping center?
The next Santa Cruz County supervisor for 2nd district — which includes Aptos & enviorns — will be …?
Why not ask Safeway’s representative to attend the meeting to introduce possible 2nd District Supervisors May 7 at the Rio Sands Motel? And of course invite all the small businesses which will be eliminated per Safeway’s plans. Great opportunity for all “stake holders” to stake out their positions.
Maybe someone can get KSCO 1080 to put it on the radio live so those who cannot attend could get a few questions in as well? written by email@example.com
Candidate opinions on Safeway sought
An open letter to the five candidates vying in June for 2nd District supervisor: Aptos’ own 99 percent need to know where each of you stands regarding 1 percent Safeway’s planned destruction of over half of the locally owned businesses of Rancho del Mar Shopping Center in Aptos. Details, please. No more generic statements as in the Voter’s Information Pamphlet nor your various “town meetings.” We are looking forward to reading your responses, Daniel Beckett, Doug Deitch, Zach Friend, Rich McInnis and Antonio Rivas.
