Drop the sanctuary fight and unite against oil 

San Luis Obispo County is currently engaged in character assassinations similar to the Salem witch hunts and burning people at the stake over made-up or perceived transgressions.

One of the supervisors was accused of taking money from Big Oil, but when we look to see what Big Oil is, it turns out to be a couple of propane companies and JB Dewar who sell fuel and oil to fishermen, farmers, ranchers, and other local companies.

Adam Hill accused the fishing industry of throwing in with Big Oil. These slanderous remarks from a consummate whiner was no surprise to us, nor were the rantings and misconceptions of the other pro-sanctuary vote that has had absolutely no contact with the commercial fishermen, harbor department, or any city officials before writing his support letter to National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. These are the constituents in his district that he is sworn to represent.

I am truly astounded at an issue that has so many people divided. May I make a suggestion to those sanctuary advocates who think this is an oil issue? Drop the sanctuary and let's go after the real issue, if it is oil. Then we might all be standing shoulder to shoulder on the same issue instead of divided over something.

Furthermore, if we do not have local control, then why were the supervisor chambers packed, or why was this being addressed at all.
