Tabbi Decides Not to Sue Sunland-Tujunga Chamber of Commerce, Gateway to Angeles National Forest

Following his removal from the board for not supporting the party platform at the Sunland-Tujunga Chamber of Commerce, Phil Tabbi has stated that he has decided not to follow through with lawsuits against the Chamber and other parties over the issue:

"Due to circumstances, I will not follow through with any lawsuits. It is in my best interest to do so, and the best interest in a chamber that can hopefully turn around and see the truth."

We are not certain what those circumstances are, what is in whose best interest and what, if anything, Tabbi plans to do to address this atrocity, but we will certainly stay tuned.

In the meantime, if you believe in free speech and free association, you might like to drop your own Chamber membership and perhaps not frequent businesses that support the Chamber in it's current incarnation.

The efforts to "brand" Sunland-Tujunga and to create an identity the community can market around are admirable ones. How it has been handled by the Sunland-Tujunga Chamber of Commerce and the Sunland-Tujunga Neighborhood Council has even those who support the "Gateway to the Angeles National Forest" concept, concerned. We live in a world where there should be a marketplace of ideas. If one has a concept they feel is worthy, it should be submitted to that marketplace and not foisted through bullying, strong-arm tactics and lack of transparency. This does not represent the community that we want Sunland-Tujunga to be.
