Here is the CSPP Supervisor Candidate Forum that was held at the Four Points Sheraton in San Rafael on Wednesday, March 30th.
Up for election are THREE supervisor seats in Districts One, Two and Three. What this means to you is that we will have a NEW MAJORITY on the Board of Supervisors who will determine the development pattern of our neighborhoods.
The battle over the urbanization of Marin has been raging for years. Our current supervisors (Rice, Sears and Kinsey) have been instrumental in giving Plan Bay Area and the MTC the reigns to our development, accepting the questionable premise that a massive upzoning of Marin is necessary. Both Katie Rice and Steve Kinsey voted for Plan Bay Area while serving on ABAG and MTC. Kate Sears has stonewalled residents of Strawberry when they objected to being a Priority Development Area.
The unincorporated areas of Marin, like Marinwood-Lucas Valley is particularly vulnerable because it only takes three supervisors to vote on development AND THEY DONT EVEN LIVE HERE AND WE CANNOT VOTE for them!
That is how Steve Kinsey was able to force hundreds of the affordable housing in our neighborhood while only allowing a few in his voting district.
It is now our chance for a completely fresh start. Damon Connolly is a good man and a fine representative for our district but we need more like him. This is why I ask you to consider joining me in support of Al Dugan, Susan Kirsch and Kevin Haroff.
The 2016 Marin County Supervisor Candidate Forum sponsored by CSPP were held on March 30, 2016 at the Four Points Sheraton in San Rafael, CA.
Three supervisor seats are up for grabs in Districts 2, 3 and 4. Thirteen candidates in total are running in the June 7, 2016 election.
