Thank Coronado mayor for doing the right thing

Please thank the Mayor of Coronado for his decision to uphold the enshrined idea of separation of church and state.

Mayor Richard Bailey and the City of Coronado recently decided to have a city-owned church directory display at Spreckels Park replaced in conjunction with a city project to update its signage in light of constitutional concerns. FFRF has sent a letter thanking the mayor for respecting the constitutional principle of keeping religion and government separate, and for recognizing the diversity of religious belief and nonbelief in the Coronado community.

We’re asking you to please join us in thanking Mayor Bailey for his respectful decision. You can call the mayor at 619-522-7320 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dear Mayor Bailey,

I’m writing to express my appreciation for your decision to honor the constitutional principle of the separation of church and state by replacing the church directory sign at Spreckels Park. Your choice recognizes the varying religious and nonreligious viewpoints in the Coronado community and sets a laudable example for other elected officials. This decision both ensures that nonreligious and non-Christian citizens will not be made to feel ostracized in Coronado, and upholds an important American ideal. Thank you.
