Your View: Public relations disaster
Posted: February 05, 2016

It was disappointing to see the article attempting to humanize the spokesperson who is being paid to sell Gilroy residents on a housing project to which we have publicly voiced our opposition. That said, what was most concerning—and left me scratching my head—were her comments specific to the proposal.

Your View: City Council: Fix our streets
Posted: February 05, 2016

The major streets of Gilroy are turning into a third-world grid of potholes, gullies and fissures that continues to get worse after every storm, and it appears NOBODY in city government is not only not doing anything about it, but apparently does not care. Why is our City Council not doing anything about it? It seems to me the Dispatch could make a lot of Gilroy residents very happy to spearhead an effort to find out WHY the streets have been so neglected (besides the age-old excuses of ‘no money’) and WHY our local government refuses to keep us posted on their plans to fix it. How about an editorial addressing this problem?

YOUR VIEWS: Business suffocated by regulation; Say no to Fr. Serra
Posted: September 11, 2015

Is the “quality of life” for Gilroy small businesses such that small business owners should invest more money here? Or do the confiscatory taxes/fees/fines/assessments/mandates combined with crucifying, strangling and suffocating regulations and ordinances, blight us out of business,

Your Views: Inspired to Write
Posted: August 21, 2015

I just wanted to let you know that I was moved by reading David Lima's article “Is Gilroy's ‘small town’ doomed?” in the July 31 Dispatch—so much so that I just wrote a letter via the city's website to the council members, and thought I would let you know. I appreciated Mr. Lima's information and insight and thank you all that it inspired me to take action and write to my council members. That letter follows:

Your View: Don't sack the saxes
Posted: June 05, 2015

For 23 years the Central Coast Sax Quartet has been an essential piece of the Gilroy Garlic Festival experience.  Each year, without fail, they stroll through the festival grounds, delighting visitors and providing local flavor to the festival’s music scene.  This year, the Garlic Festival is looking to end its nearly quarter century history with the group by “going in a new direction” for their musical lineup.

According to a Pew Research Center study released Tuesday May 12th the number of Americans calling themselves Christian has dropped off sharply in recent years while the "none" classification has sharply increased especially among young people. One third of millennials say they have no faith affiliation. This was the result of a survey of 35,000 American adults.

Weekly poll

With a statewide election on tap for legalized marijuana in November, should Gilroy consider allowing medical and recreational cannabis growers or stores?

So far, the city council and planning commission have turned down considering cannabis cultivation in Gilroy. However, other cities, such as Santa Cruz, are bringing in millions in tax revenues from dispensaries.
