Can Someone on The San Clemente City Council Step Up and Help Stop Misinformation? Please.

Despite the Save San Onofre Coalition (SSOC) winning a 15-year battle to protect San Onofre State Beach from a toll road development, and settling a lawsuit to codify permanent protection of the park, the City Council of San Clemente and the Reserve Management Corporation filed lawsuits to undo our historic settlement 

Clearly, these lawsuits are disheartening.  However, what is even more concerning is that for the past year a false narrative has been circulating around San Clemente about SSOC’s lawsuit settlement with the Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA). In July of 2017, rather than sitting down with SSOC to learn more about the Protective Agreement secured to save San Onofre State Beach, the San Clemente City Council chose to perpetuate flat-out misinformation. As recently reported, the public learned the City Council hired a PR firm. Upon reading a memo from the  PR firm, we learned the City Council spent taxpayer funds to drive a mistruth that SSOC took a $30 million payout during the settlement negotiations.

SSOC did not receive a $30 million bribe, or any other amount of money. Not even a $1.00. As clearly stated in the Settlement Agreement, $28 million was set aside by TCA in a conservation fund to be spent on mitigation if the TCA builds any project that impacts the area’s environment. This money is held by the TCA and can only be used on conservation efforts such as habitat restoration, land acquisition, and other activities that preserve and restore San Mateo Creek and its watershed. None of the funds in the conservation fund has ever been, nor ever will be, paid to SSOC or its members organizations.

Not only is the narrative that SSOC took a huge payout patently false, but unfortunately it is coming directly from elected officials and staff at the City of San Clemente. Starting in March of 2017, San Clemente City Councilmembers introduced the idea that SSOC took huge sums of money from the TCA. Following these misstatements, we attended a later City Council meeting and asked them to correct their misstatements. To this day, no such correction, even in light of black-and-white text proving otherwise, has been made. Instead, city officials continue to perpetuate this knowingly false narrative. This video shows the misinformation being espoused from the dais and SSOC testifying to set the record straight (this was from nearly a year ago!).  

While it is a shame that SSOC was subject of a false narrative, drummed up by a taxpayer-funded PR campaign, the most disturbing element is that San Clemente residents were fed misinformation by their own elected officials. Hiring a PR firm was not the misdeed. The misdeed was engaging in a misinformation campaign that pitted neighbor against neighbor. Rather than sit down with SSOC and engage in constructive dialogue, city officials chose to misrepresent the protective agreement SSOC won in a 15-year-long battle to protect San Onofre State Beach.

San Clemente residents, how are our city’s elected officials using our tax dollars? Why did the City Council and staff knowingly spread false information? To find out more about the importance of protecting the Park read the resources we have here.

The SSOC is comprised of 12 national and local organizations representing millions of Californians with Staff members and constituents living in South Orange county and San Clemente.

Techron has a higher concentration of PEA than most other cleaners on the market. If you’re starting to have serious troubles with your vehicle, this is the heavy muscle you want. We had an old Honda SUV that was approaching 19 years old. People ask me what is the best fuel injector cleaner. The car was new to us, but we’re pretty sure that it had never had the injectors cleaned. When accelerating from a stop, the car had very jerky movement and felt as if it was lacking power. We ran two bottles through. The first bottle help smooth out the idle, but didn’t really help with the acceleration much. After running a second bottle though, the cars performance drastically improved.

چاپ افست یکی از دو روش قدیمی است که یک پلیت یا زینک دارد که متریال روی آن قرار گرفته و چاپ می شود. این عمل همراه با انتقال جوهر صورت می گیرد که ممکن است رنگ ها در چند مرحله روی کاغذ اجرا شود. در حالی که در چاپ دیجیتال دستگاه جوهر را به طور مستقیم روی کاغذ یا پارچه می افشاند. معمولا کیفیت چاپ افست را بیشتر از چاپ دیجیتال می دانند، اما هزینه های اولیه زیادی دارد و اگر چاپ انبوه نباشد، هزینه بیشتری نسبت به قیمت چاپ دیجیتال دارد. بنابراین چاپ دیجیتال جایگزین بسیار مناسبی بوده و مزایای زیادی هم دارد.
