I love living in Salida and though I am sure today's meeting on annexation will be popcorn and front-row seat worthy, I hope residents can take this journey we are on with an open mind. There just isn't enough accurate information out yet to know what is best for us.
A lot of emotionally charged feelings abound and a few random facts here and there, but really, we just don't know yet. We don't know yet if this is the worst thing we could do for Salida or if this is the best thing for us, our children and our future. So why don't we commit to finding out everything we need to know and then deciding our future instead of drawing a line in the sand and refusing to look over that line?
Annexation will be discussed at tonight's meeting of the Salida Municipal Advisory Council, beginning at 7 in the community room of the Salida library, 4835 Sisk Road.
