I know that the April 21 County Commission Zoning Hearing was very disappointing to everyone (except Jim Rhodes, the district attorney’s office, and 4 county commissioners) but one thing it did do for us is teach us that it is very important to know who’s in office and how they feel about matters that matter to us most. All the reason and logic in the world doesn’t matter if there are not enough representatives in the government to stand up for it. It is for this reason that we are looking ahead to this election year in earnest.
We want to know who can help protect the rural character of Red Rock Canyon (now that the county has ripped the heart out of the Red Rock Overlay District so that Jim Rhodes could have the right to apply for higher density there).
Tonight there is a primary debate for Assembly District 13. I will be going to it. I have asked that they include a question about what they can do for Red Rock Canyon. I will let you know how it goes and also if there are any other political events that could shed light on this issue. Please let me know if you hear of any as well. I count on you to be the eyes and ears of this issue. I just spread the good word I hear.
