• The letter: Seppuku by any other name. . .

    The is the letter (email) which was sent to Mayor Dan Cort Monday evening advising of a recall petition and inviting Dan to “save face” by resigning.

    Hello Dan,

    Sorry to bring you bad news.

    Tomorrow morning at 11:45 we will begin publicly gathering signatures to recall you from office.

    I have attached a copy of the Recall Notice petition.

    There is a group of cross-partisan citizens who have committed to work diligently and persistently to allow Pacific Grove voters to remove you from office.

    There is one small light remaining for you, assuming you may wish to save your reputation from the Recall footnote that would be in your Wikipedia entry for the rest of your life.

    Do not construe this as a negotiation, nor is it up for discussion.

    I am authorized to let you know that if you publicly elect to resign “for family” or any other reason before we begin gathering signatures at 11:45 – the people who have already signed have agreed that the media and the general public never need know about you facing a recall effort.

    I am authorized to let you know, because I am the only one left who wishes to give you the chance to save face.

    with all due respect and haste,

    David Dilworth

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
