To the editor:
At a June 16 Sunset Beach Town Council workshop, Councilman Lou De Vita questioned the effectiveness of the Sunset Beach Business and Merchants Association’s (SBBMA) campaign to attract tourists. He chose to cite the SBBMA’s posting of the programs at Ingram Planetarium on its website as an example of ineffective spending.
I leave it to the SBBMA to justify its overall program, but De Vita’s statements imply the programs offered at Ingram Planetarium have no effect on attracting visitors to Sunset Beach. I disagree.
