Letter | Follows the money trail in making voting decisions

By Letters to the Editor | Santa Cruz Sentinel October 15, 2022 at 7:00 a.m.


I may be a simple-minded fool, but it strikes me that decisions in local politics can be easily made by asking “Where’s the money?” Developers and Realtors almost always value profits and commissions over community. If they contribute generously to a candidate or issue as they are wont to do, they expect that donation to serve their interests. I value community over developers and realtors, so, with few exceptions, I simply vote where they ain’t. End of story.
