There are 60 nonprofit organizations/districts on this mountain. Most have an agenda serving a target audience. It might be businesses, homeowners, artists or children. It’s offensive when they step to the plate claiming a hill-wide service model and in fact have allegiance to just a few. It’s even more offensive when they manipulate funding and continue to serve themselves.

Consider whom you vote for. ICC, IWD and IFPD/surrogates, it’s not about the central business district or making a personal buck/agenda. With that perspective, there will never be sustainable, hill-wide funding. It’s about a service model accessible to all. Idyllwild residents think smarter and vote these clowns out.
