Dana Point Takes 1st Step to Ban Plastic Bags! Nanny Government Goes Small Town!
Posted by Craig P. Alexander on February 7, 2012
Tonight, by a 4 to 1 vote, the Dana Point City Council voted to implement a plastic bag ban. Of the four Republicans on the council, only Bill Brough voted no on this latest “Green” initiative that is an indirect tax on the citizens via the higher cost of purchasing from retail stores in and around Dana Point. From Lara Anderson, who always wears with pride her endorsements from the Sierra Club, I did not expect a no vote. She is a consistent RINO.
But is was very disappointing to see Lisa Bartlett and Scott Schoeffel vote yes on this extension of big government in our city. But then again they have both voted yes consistently for the Dana Point Hotel Tax so I should not be surprised. They were both endorsed for election (Lisa in 2010 and Scott in 2008) by the conservative South Orange County Republican Assembly. I doubt they will find that group as supportive the next time around with votes like these!
