Don’t vote for a shortsighted supervisor 

Wine and tourist industries, listen up. Jerry Lenthall and Harry Ovitt threw millions of free advertising dollars, which would have benefited your industries, away last year. Both of these supervisors opposed trying to add the Carrizo Plains as a World Heritage Site.
   They let the oil interests from Taft and the paranoia of a U.N. takeover blind their decision making. Had the Carrizo Plains been selected as a World Heritage Site, information about it, along with SLO County, would have been distributed to every travel agency around the world for free! International tourists would want to come to this newest site recognized as a special place in the world. This kind of distinction is what tourist areas crave. So, why did Lenthall and Ovitt throw it away? Their special interest friends were more important than the economy of this county.
   Again, if you are in the wine and tourist industries, do you really want to support someone as shortsighted as Lenthall and Ovitt? In these times of dwindling tax dollars and high gas prices, why throw away such great international advertising?
   The clear choice is to vote for Adam Hill and Jim Patterson for Supervisor.
