Letter to the Editor - Napa Valley Register by Harry Price
There have been a lot of dire claims from Measure C’s opponents about the negative effects Measure C would have on Napa County, but I urge all Napa County voters to ask themselves a few simple questions with their ballots in their hands:
1. Does it make sense that saving trees would raise taxes?
2. Does it make sense that saving trees would increase local traffic?
3. Does it make sense that saving trees would destroy the beauty of our valley?
4. Does it make sense that saving trees from development would cause event centers to spring up?
If you agree with me that none of the above makes common sense, then join me in voting YES on Measure C.
Passage of Measure C won’t solve our environmental problems but will help: help save our oak woodlands; help create more oxygen for us to breathe; help provide food and shelter for wildlife; help reduce carbon dioxide to offset global warming; help to reduce sediment in our waterways and will help re-charge our water supply.
Any one of the above is reason to vote 'yes' on Measure C. Measure C will point us in the right direction. Join me in voting YES on Measure C.
