Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

Avoid flat lining

Maria Hooper - Atascadero

In response to Roberta Fonzi’s concern about the word Atascadero being “hard to read” in the newly suggested logo (“Welcome to the Heart of the Central Coast,” Feb. 14), I ask, “Where were you when the Chamber of Commerce put up the freeway welcome sign as you approach the city from the north?”

You can only read “Atascadero” if you know what it’s supposed to say.

If Atascadero is the “Heart of the Central Coast,” I suggest you have bypass surgery.
