Measure U is in response to the donation of the Old Coast Hotel to the Mendocino Coast Hospitality Center, a faith based charitable organization, by The City of Fort Bragg using funds from a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), a funding mechanism cities use to finance public and private projects. This scandal plagued organization had teamed up with Ortner Management Group to provide sorely needed services to the Mendocino Coast including Homeless and Behavior Health Services.
Attending this forum representing Measure U will be Anne Marie Cesario and Rod Jones. There will be no formal representation by opponents of Measure U. We received this email in response to our invitation. Subsequent invites were declined.
We are writing to respond to the request for someone from Social Services
Alliance to represent the arguments against Measure U for your show. Scott
relayed the message from your phone call to him last night. We are pleased
that you want to bring more attention to Measure U but given the late
notice and no official invitation indicating when the show is or how it
will be structured or moderated, we are declining to participate. We spent
quite a bit of time preparing for the League of Women Voters forum where
we presented our arguments against Measure U to the public. We do not have
the time to give your show our full attention and are simply unable to
rearrange our already full schedules on such short notice. Please direct
any further correspondence to the Social Services Alliance at
