I commend The Bee for coming out in support of Proposition 84. We all stand to benefit from the passing of this proposition, which addresses critical concerns such as safe drinking water standards for smaller Valley towns, agricultural land preservation, urban greening projects and local and regional parks, as well as planning incentives to conserve water and improve air quality.
As a mother raising three sons and the keeper of the household checkbook, I can also appreciate that Proposition 84 will not raise taxes, yet direct much-needed state funds to the Valley. The valuable choices we make today affect our children and our children's children tomorrow. Please vote for Proposition 84.
