Here's what I liked most about this letter: "It's our world to change..."
Alejo jeopardizing environment
A year ago, I met Laura Kasa, from Save Our Shores. I'd never really thought about the threat of plastic pollution to our oceans, but Laura changed that. Together, we passed a styrofoam ban for Salinas; it only took us six weeks. Now, a year later, we just met with Assemblyman Luis Alejo's chief of staff to discuss Senate Bill 568, for a statewide ban on polystyrene food ware. Mr. Alejo doesn't support the bill -- that raises serious concern and doubt about his environmental views and commitment to protecting the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and Big Sur coastline. After that meeting, sensing my frustration, Laura shook her head: "Matthew, you don't really think we're going to change the world in just one-year do you?" There was a pause, we both smiled, I didn't need to respond, Laura knew my answer. It's our world to change, please support SB 568.
