Get a Grip TCA

Last week activists from Surfrider Foundation and NRDC spoke at the TCA's board meeting before they approved a study to start building the first four miles of the 241 toll road. Apparently we touched a nerve when we reminded them that State and Federal agencies have said that they can't build their road through to San Onofre State Beach and Trestles.

Here's an audio clip of Tustin Mayor Jerry Amante responding to our comments. Of course, Jerry is also the one who loves to extol the virtues of pavement. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Amante speaks for the 1 %. Has he forgotten about us... the 99% that will always fight to STOP this road?

An arrogant remark? Yes. A pointless remark? Maybe, but someday if Camp Pendleton is developed and subdivisions are already built out to the N & S edges of the base, a road like 241 will be inevitable. Now, though, the road wouldn't do much but hasten that kind of development (and we all know that's what this battle is all about anyway).

And one more thing - this guy's a kook.
