With the recent comments and vote by SJC Council representatives from San Juan and Lopez on the vacation rental moratorium and a letter to the editor stating VR is an Orcas problem, we now have islands fighting amongst each other. NIMBY now prevails.
Islanders usually work together to solve issues even though the issue may only involve one island. One example would be we all worked together on the Growler noise issue on Lopez. Should we now let Lopez solve the issue on its own?
Fortunately council member Cindy Wolf recognizes the VR problem on Orcas and foresight of the impending problems on the other islands if no action is taken.
