Flower Fields? Did someday say 'Flower Fields?' Let me tell you an interesting story about Carlsbad's Flower Fields. In early 2008, a group of everyday Carlsbad residents received some alarming news about the Flower Fields, so they wrote a ballot proposition entitled "Save the Flower Fields." It bothered the City Council that a group of "nobodies" would show this kind of interest; but instead of simply publicly encouraging a 'no' vote, the City Council wrote a competing ballot issue entitled "PRESERVE the Flower Fields." Then they spent tax dollars to mail their cleverly worded propaganda pieces to all voters, "clearly" explaining and demonstrating their superiority over the everyday person, and "don't vote for theirs, vote for ours." The cheaters managed a small victory. I had no involvement with either proposition, but would gladly support a new proposition that pertains to the disincorporation of this unnecessary and hostile political entity.
