Letter to the Editor

A multipronged approach to rejuvenation of prosperity

First, expand present indus- tries including urban gardens, aquaculture in El Centro, grow marijuana, zero waste/recycling, maintain military contracts, cargo port capacity drone manufactur- ing, tourism from the pacifi c rim, western Canada and Europe

with port authority and national airlines, increase marketing of cruising and “conventioning”. Amtrak discounts on weekends to San Diego, increase bus service from Arizona, California and Ne- vada for tourists... expand cargo port capacity. Expand technology companies by fast track all regula- tion and zoning roadblocks, ditto for expansion of small business- es. Encourage companies private and public to form medical clinics

for their own present and past employees. Self insurance liability plans. Local insurance plans. Secondly, property tax credits to stimulate city property values for city employees, teachers and present and past military person- nel and families. Water and en- ergy property projects in the city. Thirdly, stop outsourcing of capital and jobs from the city/ state. Legalize marijuana ASAP. Decrease the cost of healthcare
