SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
George Gregory, San Clemente
San Clemente still seems to only write tickets for street sweeping parking violations to the folks that live in the northern, multifamily areas of town, and everyone else gets a pass, why?
I observed two cars on the whole block in the northern part of town whose owners forgot to move and were issued tickets. I was in the southern part of town and observed more than six cars on a very short block get no ticket, why? Are our car tires dirtier than theirs or do we just discriminate against blue-collar and renter families?
I’d like everyone to remember the last six words of the pledge of allegiance: “with liberty and justice for all,” or shall we change it to liberty for some in San Clemente and not for all?
I ask City Council to agendize this and other shameful snob laws in our community. Please, let’s be fair.
George Gregory ran for City Council unsuccessfully in 2006 and is a property and business owner in San Clemente, as well as a charity volunteer and a ship’s captain.
