Ballot Measure 2 opponents spreading message of fear

At the first hearing regarding Ballot Measure 2 last Monday in Soldotna I got to hear firsthand from those opposed to the coastal management initiative. They are corporate, organized and very well funded. Their goal is to silence the voice of coastal residents. Their talking points are all over the place. You will hear the Ballot Measure 2 is too vague, another layer of bureaucracy, too broad of scope and from the least informed a job killer. Fear is their message, the goal is to silence those of us that live on the coast and insist on responsible development.

But, hey, corporations are people, too.
