WATSONVILLE — To annex or not to annex?

That was the focus of a debate Friday afternoon between Daniel Dodge and Chris Enright, who sit on opposite sides of the Measure T, a plan to amend the city’s urban limit line and annex approximately 95 acres of working farmland for potential commercial or industrial development.

The debate capped off the 24th Focus Agriculture class, which educates community members about Pajaro Valley’s farming industry. It was attended by more than a dozen people.

Dodge is a Watsonville City Councilman who has championed the issue and was instrumental in gathering more than 4,000 signatures to bring it before voters in June.

Enright owns Enright Nursery in Watsonville and sits on the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau Board of Directors, an organization that opposes the measure along with Action Pajaro Valley and the Committee to Save Jobs and Farmland, a group he described as “huge diverse group of people.”
