KATHY OWENS, San Clemente
Here we go again with Laura Ferguson and her illusions about being an advocate for San Clemente residents: “Keeping Engaged and Fire Lit Under the Council” from San Clemente Times’ March 3 edition.
Ferguson has been the most disruptive city councilmember in my 30 years in San Clemente. Very few of her motions have ever gotten support from the majority of City Council, and she wonders why that is the case.
If she would only look inward, she would come to the realization that she is ill-informed about the major topics as she refuses to meet weekly with the city manager and appears to not attend closed session items.
Meeting with city officials, staff, and not attending meetings is the core to becoming informed. No wonder she does not get support from other city councilmembers.
The next City Council election is this November, and I intend to vote.
