… The day will come when the politicians do the right thing for our people out of political necessity…”
-César E. Chávez
The Time Has Come- For Us to Make that Day a Reality! Join Us And Take Action For:
AIR QUALITY- Asthma is one of the leading reasons for school absences and emergency room visits
PEDESTRIAN SAFETY- Our children & the disabled deserve safe routes to get home safely.
NEIGHBORHOOD MAINTENANCE- All neighborhoods should have the basic necessities (streetlights, well-paved streets, storm drainage, etc.) that most take for granted.
MEASURE C- Any extension of this sales tax has to devote more funds, throughout the County, to public transportation, neighborhood maintenance and pedestrian safety.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION- Our brothers and sisters without cars need bus service that does not hinder, but helps, their efforts at building a better life. The more people use public transportation, the more cars get left home- this is better for our air!
We expect to gain specific commitments, from both candidates, concerning each of the five issues and move the Community’s platform forward.
Forum Presented By: St. Anthony Mary Claret Local Organizing Committee (LOC), FACT (Fresno Area Congregations Together), La Union del Pueblo Entero (LUPE), Sierra Club- Tehipite Chapter, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Advisory Committee and Community Alliance.
