Dear Alamo Ron,

It is one day later and the rosey glow of approval is still shining in a few sleepy heads this morning. AIM proponents received approval to proceed with a campaign to incorporate the Town of Alamo.

It will be you and me that will likely discuss the very large task that stands in front of the AIM committee and supporters. AIM will have to convert a two thirds NO vote currently existing within their boundaries to a majority YES vote. AIM must be aware on this bright morning that neighbors came forward last night to provide commissioners with the need for broad definition of the proposed town's structure, operations, services and staffing as the true financial reality of incorporation. Those same neighbors came forward and objected to the unilateral dismissal of any citizen participation in AIM's incorporation process and the Town of Alamo government that has been proposed.

The commissioners saw the issue of definition and nearly delayed approval of an election in order for AIM and LAFCO staff to provide such definition. Now, RON, it will likely be up to you and me to provoke such definition from AIM and establish the opportunity for a successful incorporation.

Let's share this opportunity and put away the gauntlets.

Just me
