LOUIS D’ANGELO, San Clemente

I am proud to own a business in the RSC Business Park. We’re a crew of scrappy local startups and seasoned local mainstays, from Drift Distillery to Rainbow Sandals, Stance Socks to Riffe International, to my own company, and everyone in between.

The business in the Rancho SC Business Park is representative of the culture of SC, in the same way that there are no national chain stores or restaurants on Del Mar.

The city should not allow one of this town’s most unique (and favorite among the groms) institutions, the circle track, to be taken over by the biggest company in the U.S., not to mention one of the least supportive to its employees.

Letting Amazon put a huge facility in town is the logistics equivalent of letting the TCA build a highway through town. It’s not the right thing for our culture, our clean air, our quiet streets, or our citizens.
