Dear Secretary Zinke:

As a former resident of San Diego, we are writing you to ask for your assistance in protecting the coastline of San Diego. With over 70 miles of scenic coastline, a significant US Navy presence, a maritime industry that impacts nearly 50,000 employees countywide and a region that is dependent on a robust tourism industry the protection of our ocean and coastline is one of our top priorities.

As California’s offshore oil drilling moratorium expires we are asking for your leadership in adopting a new moratorium or asking President Trump to invoke his authority under Section 12(a) of the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act to permanently withdraw federal waters off the coast of San Diego from offshore oil and gas leasing and guarantee that future oil and gas drilling in these waters is prohibited.

In 2015, the City of San Diego forged and adopted one of the nation’s most ambitious plans to cut carbon emissions to ensure a clean and sustainable San Diego for future generations.. New fossil fuel developments within these waters would considerably diminish any progress the State of California and the City of San Diego have made toward protecting our ocean and coastline from future impacts of climate change.

San Diego's economy is dependent on a strong and viable military presence and a robust tourism industry that is incompatible with offshore oil and gas leasing and drilling.

We would appreciate your dedication to protecting our ocean’s waters and beaches and urge you to permanently protect San Diego’s marine environment and maritime industry.

Most Respectfully,

    I was born in California in 1969 and have been raised in this state. This is my home and the home of my children who were also born here. You DO NOT have the right to drill off our coast! This is not acceptable! This is not okay by any standards! YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TOUCH OUR COAST!

    Hillary Clinton, the most unlikable, dishonest, phony, incompetent, Democratic 2016 presidential candidate in U.S. political history, lost because she did not connect with the American people, her untrustworthy regarding her thousand deleted emails, her abortion fanaticism, calling Americans deplorable, selling herself with I am a woman, I am the wife of Bill Clinton, I defended my husband’s infidelities, I support “open borders” and I deserve to win so, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?" in the polls, was not enough to win the presidential election. The liberal biased mainstream media was on her side, had hundreds of celebrity endorsements, had an army of wealthy donors, spend more money than any presidential candidate in history, and yet she lost. Can you believe that? Hillary Clinton lost the easiest most winnable election in modern American political history. And it's her own fault, no one to blame but her. What a waste of time and money ($1.2 billion), hope you wealthy donors, Democratic supporters, and uninformed Clinton voters are happy, as you voted for a LOSER.
