Heavens, how scandalous! Village Laguna uses the funds raised by the Charm House tour to further its mission, “To preserve, enhance, and celebrate the unique village character and cultural heritage of Laguna Beach.”
Isn’t it appropriate for an organization to use the funds it raises to further its mission, including letting the public know which candidates support that mission?
Why are antagonists criticizing Village Laguna and the upcoming Charm House tour and not the recently organized PAC “Liberate Laguna,” which operates on over $150,000 donated by local real estate developers and which was behind the election of Councilmember Peter Blake.
Village Laguna and most Laguna Beach residents treasure our city, its charm, history, its creative and community-oriented spirit.
This is what Village Laguna strives to promote and protect—in contrast with the proposed damaging policies, divisiveness and harsh attacks that have characterized our Council since the “Liberate Laguna” candidate Blake has taken office.
Village Laguna is a grassroots, resident-oriented organization that participates in our community. Village Laguna is not developing properties. It seeks no real estate profits. Its operating budget comes from resident donations and broad-based events such as the Charm House Tour. Its financial reporting has been reviewed and complies with state law.
Your interest in Village Laguna is appreciated. The Charm House Tour, “A Century of Laguna Charm” welcomes you to experience the warmth and creativity of our town as expressed in homes from the early 1900s to the present day. See VillageLaguna.org for tickets and further information.
