Editor:

I just got a brochure in the mail from FairWageSantaMonica.com. On a bright red background it states in big white letters, “70% of Santa Monicans Agree We Need One Fair Minimum Wage.” In an asterisk at the bottom in very small print it says, “survey of 501 Santa Monica voters.” What voters? Registered voters? Eligible voters? Party affiliation? Resident voters? So now 501 nebulous voters represent 70% of Santa Monicans? WOW, that seems to be a stretch for anyone. Lets allow ALL the Santa Monica resident voters to decide the issue on minimum wage. After all, we the taxpayers will have to foot the bill as usual.
