Low numbers make survey suspect

Editor,

The article pertaining to a government-sponsored survey [suspect unto itself] with less than 7,000 responses is just plain ridiculous.

OC claims “millions” of visitors each year. Does anyone really believe 7,000 responses [from a million visitors] is meaningful?

Granted the “responses” absolutely favor the mayor and the media is pressured to publish these “favorable” results.

Unfortunately, the mayor will base policy, rules, regulations and taxpayer funded projects based upon his sponsored survey results. It is a shame that the media is not independent enough to expose this fiasco.
