Dear editor,

This is a letter I sent to the Pacifica City Council.

I’m addressing the council members on two very serious issues in our City of Pacifica.  Homeless encampement fire??  Seriously?  How did you allow things to get so out of control? This is compassion?  Have you not seen what Santa Rosa is dealing with? Filth, disease, etc.   Have you been at 80 and University in Berkeley?  It will blow your minds.  When you allow this, it grows to uncontrollable situations and then there are legalities in removing the encampment and it is almost impossible.  As if  the RV situation, that you have condoned and have made it the problems of us property owners was enough! Compassion is getting these people into shelters, homes, and facilities that can address their problems.  Compassion is NOT allowing them a space to pitch tents, light fires for warmth, spread trash and feces an shoot up; compassion is NOT allowing them to live in RVs with no gas, electricity and plumbing on tax payers residential streets  and dollars for free!

So, first I and many others want to know what you are doing about cleaning out the encampment and when.  And next, I want to know when you are posting no parking signs for RVs over 6 feet on TERRA NOVA BLVD.  When?  Hundreds of property owners, property tax payers – the ones who pay your salaries – want to know WHEN ARE YOU POSTING THE NO RV PARKING SIGNS. When, just tell us when. You are in your positions because we trusted you to have PACIFICA, CALIFORNIA it your best interests – Not transplants from other parts of the US coming to Pacifica because the word has gotten out in RV Land that “we’re” OK with it.  

I want to also bring to your attention something I’ve been keeping my eyes on.  At least since March 2015, I know for a fact the person in the wood camper shell vehicle  parked at Oceana Blvd  has made Oceana Bvld. his home.  For starters, he doesn’t pay property. taxes. Is that fair?  Is he someone who goes to work everyday and is trying his level best to obtain housing?  Be honest with yourself.  The answer is most probably a big NO.  And because nothing was done about this, well simply put, Ocean Blvd. has gone to hell.  Are we supposed to have compasion for him? How about some compassion for US 

Yes, I am furious. I am furious because I do not believe any of you truly love Pacifica. Your actions speak louder than your campaign words. 

How about you start doing something for the people who really care about this city, the people who pay taxes, the people who pay your salary.  Clean this city up.  It would never have ended up like this if you nipped it in the bud. 

It is terrible, just terrible, that basically we all, hundreds of us on this street alone, have to grovel to you five people to do the right thing.  Stop double talking, waiting for this and waiting for that, and do the right thing.

Dear editor, I live in the first group of townhouses on Oddstad Boulevard. There have been RVs parked on Oddstad, making a blind spot for a right turn on Oddstad. Really dangerous. There has to be a better solution than to have RV’s parked along Oddstad and Terra Nova.  How about in front of the […]

Dear editor,  This letter was sent to the City Council. Sorry, but I have to say your opinion is way off base, in my humble opinion. What experience do you, or your ilk, have in regards to law enforcement. Have you ever arrested anyone? I  have. Have you ever applied a “choke hold” ? I […]

Dear editor,  This is a letter sent to the Pacifica City Council.  Again, I write to you about putting the RV ban on Terra Nova Blvd. – at once!  It is disgraceful of all of you to ignore all the letters and communications from hundreds of TNB property owners/property tax payers and many mem…

Dear editor,  I thank Mr. Bray for his wise words and for sharing his concerns.  I left out a few things from my original letter. First, the officer in question pulled up behind several vehicles before he reached mine. In each case, the driver moved on. I guess it had something to do with “o…

Dear editor, I find myself once again fact checking your column since more often than not your version of facts bears no relationship to the truth. I guess you take your cues from our Liar in Chief. You commented in the June 17th edition that ASU withdrew a job offer to Sonya Duhé to become […]

Dear editor,  It was a miracle. Right in front of our eyes. A Pacifica miracle. One we’ll never forget. Me and my life partner were out on our walk and saw a car approaching in our direction. It slowed and pulled over to the curb. A young lady got out of the passenger side and […]

Dear editor,  I read with sorrow and disappointment the letter from the Rev. Piers Lahey indicting the Pacifica police for parking behind him. I am not sure how parking behind him is considered “pulling him over,” but, apparently it was enough to stoke the good reverend’s fertile imagination…
