Does Das Williams really believe what he says? “The cannabis controversy is largely a controversy in the media only, and that most Carpinteria residents aren’t as outraged as Capps has made it sound in four debates during January and February.” Has he not read the hundreds of letters from his constituents against the smell of cannabis since he was paid around $60,000 from the cannabis growers?
Hundreds of his constituents have been posting complaints on “Nextdoor” for years. Has he not heard, or I should say, listened to, the hundreds of his Carpinteria constituents complaining about the smell of cannabis at the County Board of Supervisors meeting for more than two years? Has he not read the years of documentation from the Carpinteria City Council complaining about the cannabis odors in residential areas effecting the health of Carpinteria High School students and residents whose homes are surrounded by cannabis farms? Has he not taken time to read and respond to the “Cannabis Resolution” from the Carpinteria City Council to the County Board of Supervisors?
Or is it that he chooses not to hear his constituents? Or has the $60,000 donated to him by the cannabis farmers helped close his ears and eyes to his constituents’ cries for help? Supervisor Williams has had years to correct his wrongs, long before Laura Capps entered the race for supervisor.
