No, they're not bad things, but they are not at the top of my list and things like the no-kill shelter and no-chain law could have been pushed through by a citizen. I don't recall seeing her at City Council pushing for either. There was a couple asking for an ordinance against chaining up dogs, but she wasn't one of them and they didn't present a very compelling case (which is unfortunate, because there is tons of data out there to support an ordinance like that).
The last time the people of San Marcos were asked, bike and pedestrian improvements were at the tip-top of their list. I'd like to see someone pushing for those.
I'd also like some real jobs in San Marcos. Eco-tourism is nice, but I don't think it will pay for my house, my kids' college and my retirement.
