Voice: Measure B not good for Calexico

March 04, 2002

The Imperial Valley Press has come out publicly endorsing a "yes" vote on Measure B. This would limit progress not only for Wal-Mart but also for any other similar type of business wanting to set up shop in Calexico.

Ask yourself, why would any business want to come to Calexico with these restrictions already in place?

Remember, we had a Food 4 Less, a Target and a Carl's Jr. on the back burner. It now seems they have backed out of Calexico. I wonder if the Imperial Valley Press would feel the same way if a similar measure stopping development (boxing in) were in El Centro?

Wake up, people of Calexico. It is time for progress for the majority, not just the few.
