The City Council of South Portland acted wisely and correctly when it enacted its Share Willard Beach compromise this past winter. This compromise allows dog owners and their supervised dogs on the beach from 7-9 a.m. and 7-9 p.m. only, during the warmer months of the year.

The misnamed Save Willard Beach conspirators with their anti-sharing, mean-spirited referendum banning dogs completely are spitting in our faces and may succeed in hoodwinking a majority of voters this fall. Don’t allow them to do that to our freedom and our community.

Does the city of South Portland want to tell a local returning veteran from Afghanistan that he is not free to walk his dog on Willard Beach at 7 a.m. or 7 p.m. on a warm summer day?

Share Willard Beach. Vote “no” this fall and oppose the anti-sharing/anti-dog referendum.
