Exit Stage Right – Chamber Of Commerce Prez Suddenly Quits

Heard that she left her key on the desk and departed. Later quits via an email and heads for Maine.Jenny MacMurdo Lobster call

Jenny MacMurdo, 44, who took over the chamber in January 2022, decided to resign this week.

MacMurdo’s departure comes at an unfortunate time, considering the city’s biggest event of the year, the Good Old Days Street fair on May 4-5, is only two weeks away.
However, the chamber said that Metzner who has been the lead director for Good Old Days is well suited to fill in until a permanent president is selected.

Who Remembers “Most Romantic Destination”?

Propaganda piece proclaims P.G. the place for passion while the screening’s location may be a better bet.

The Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce will screen a four-minute music video, “Pacific Grove: A Love Story,” highlighting Pacific Grove as a top romantic destination, on Feb. 24 at its annual membership luncheon.

The luncheon at the Inn at Spanish Bay is $25 for members and $40 for nonmembers.

Surveillance cameras captured the incidents, and the chamber handed the footage over to the Pacific Grove Police Department and KSBW.

“The videos plainly show two separate incidents of the illegal act of impinging on the Chamber of Commerce’s right to freedom of expression,” chamber members said.

According to the city manager, one of the men in the videos was identified as local activist Luke Coletti, and he apologized.

But police are conducting an investigation to identify a second man in the video, who has a ponytail.

On Friday, the chamber announced it is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the identification and arrest of the man with the ponytail.

Coletti told KSBW that he did not steal any signs, and merely put the signs on the ground. It was unclear if Coletti will face criminal charges.

Chamber Of Commerce Wants Robocalls So You Can Be Interrupted

Now there are two things that have zero credibility with me. The Chamber of Commerce and and Robocalls.

The Chamber of Commerce is suing to strike down the Federal Communications Commission’s new robocall restrictions approved in June. The FCC proposal, approved in a 3-2 vote, would broaden the definition of autodialers, which can churn through numerous telephone numbers at the same time but are banned from calling mobile phones.

The Chamber also alleged that the new rule allowing consumers to more easily opt out of being called are largely unworkable. And the limits on calling a number that has been reassigned opens business up to litigation for “simply attempting in good faith to communicate with customers who previously provided valid consent to be contacted,” according to the Chamber.

Moammar Shocked That Tourists Don’t Buy $22 Noodles

Shocked! Just Shocked!!
Also continues to slam the Farmers Market. Can’t let a day go by without dissing something that benefits the residents.

Ammar said the restaurants in Pacific Grove that are doing the best right now are moderately priced, family places such Holly’s Lighthouse Cafe or Vivolo’s Chowder House, for example.

“I actually heard some tourists talking one day and they said: ‘Instead of going to (higher-end) Fandango, let’s grab some sandwiches at the farmers market,'” he said. “I’ve seen tourists open their trunks to eat out of their coolers.”

A Shoe Store Opens – Close The Streets And Party?

Chamber Of Commerce is clearly biased. They oppose closing Lighthouse for the Farmers Market but will close the street for a shoe store.
