Dear neighbors,

AIM and its foundation, Alamo Community Foundation, continue costly fund raisers that, by their nature, exclude the majority of our region's residents. The only imagined purpose is to keep that small faction of <300 participants and supporters engaged in a campaign for establishment of an autonomous government in a selected portion of our region.

The Alamo Community Foundation has provided a mail-in method to provide donations that go directly to LAFCo studies without the cost of events. Since LAFCo studies will provide the financial basis for our majority's review, I recommend a mail-in donation. With the studies, our majority of neighbors will have the ability to demand definition of the AIM incorporation proposal to include government structure that provides such financial benefits.

If you are concerned that you are funding an unacceptable incorporation proposal, please consider the many options of counsel action with LAFCo to define the AIM incorporation proposal or a conflicting incorporation proposal submitted separately to LAFCo based on the same financial studies.

The studies provide CHOICE, please donate,

Dear neighbors,

In honor of Alamo's community of mail boxes, Bay Morro is blending "Mail Box RED" simply marked as "94507" as a blend of Pinot, Zinfandel, and seven vegetables. It has such a semi-rural taste with a nose familiar to most Alamo gardeners.

We will have it in a convenient, galvanized box in time for May 3.
