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.

Corrections

• Our executive editor must have had The Lion King on the brain when he was editing the letters to the editor for the Jan. 23 issue. Writer John Gajdos (“Morro Bay’s ruling majority lacks the founding spirit”) referred to the mayor only as Irons in his original submission, and Ryan Miller added the first name—except he typed Jeremy (as in the actor and voice of the leonine Disney villain Scar) instead of Jamie (the actual Morro Bay mayor). To reiterate: The wrong first name was the editor’s fault, not the author’s.

• A Jan. 23 news story (“Water in the red”) misstated the current capacity level of Lake Nacimiento. Currently, the lake is at 22 percent of its capacity.
