A Salida Resident Talks about the Recent Salida MAC Meeting
By Jim Bonetti
I attended Tuesday nights Salida M.A.C. meeting and listened to the delivery and performance of Modesto Chamber’s
plan for expansion that will bring Jobs, Jobs, Jobs. George does a pretty good job getting his point across. I did notice that a few items were left out of the delivery. Namely that part about the property on Kiernan Road. I don’t know if that was intentional or not, but George does not make many mistakes.
THE LAND SOUTH OF KIERNAN ROAD FROM KAISER HOSPITAL WESTWARD TO STODDARD ROAD BELONGS TO SALIDA!
THE LAND NORTH OF KIERNAN FROM DALE ROAD WESTWARD TO SISK BELONGS TO SALIDA!
There were a few disparaging comments made during the meeting as well that will probably hurt the Modesto Chambers cause.
Cecil Russell was overheard saying that “the people of Salida are too stupid to see out of their own box”. Hey, we don’t want to see anything but ALL OF SALIDA BEING INCORPORATED! You don’t see us stepping on Modesto’s toes as they can do whatever they want…..with Modesto!
Craig Lewis said he doesn’t think Amanda Sorenson dresses well for a meeting. Hmm, does she need wear clothes according to Craig’s dress code. WHAT? He also says that Katherine Borges is OPINIONATED!! OMG! Really? Thank God she has opinions and thank God we have a dedicated group of Salidan’s who care about the future of this town to donate their time and talents to make this a better town as well as contribute to incorporation. Yes, Katherine is opinionated…..and, I confess, so am I. Its beyond me to allow outside organizations, without expressing myself, to take over our town or chip away at our land as they did with Kaiser Hospital, Costco, Lowes and Save Mart.
We’ve said it before “STAY OUT OF OUR TOWN…EVERY SQUARE FOOT OF IT”! Take ALL of Salida OUT OF MODESTO’S PLAN AND SPHERE OF INFLUENCE!
