Mailbag: Now that the vote is done, Newport can get back to business
I do not speak for the Yes On Measure B folks. I do not speak for the No On Measure B folks. Like you, I am simply a resident of Newport Beach.
Good, bad or indifferent, the outcome of Measure B has been decided.
As my dad would say about management issues in the law firm with which he was affiliated: “Once a controversial issue in the firm has been discussed and resolved, it is time to put the issue behind you, to join hands, and to look forward — not back.”
So it should be with the Newport Council’s business. Soldier on — with civility and collaboration.
Or as author Paulo Coelho tells us in his 1993 classic “The Alchemist”: “When you can’t go back, you have to worry only about the best way of moving forward.”
