Rally at the Capitol!

We're tired of living in fear!

Friday, August 19th

12:15 p.m.

Meet in front of the Capitol on L street

We're circling the Capitol and City Hall to let our elected officials know we want them to take a stand and support safe and effective mosquito control. We're asking for measures that will truly protect the public from the threat of West Nile Virus - a professional public outreach effort, increased larvae control, and spot spraying.

If you think that this spray is a one-time emergency application - THINK AGAIN! Mosquito control could start another round of spraying as early as next month. If you don't want to live with the threat of aerial spraying year after year - now is the time to make our presence felt.

It's not just our county that's at stake! We are at the forefront of a state-wide battle to replace aerial and truck spraying with more sane and effective methods of mosquito control.

It's important to come out strong NOW - when it's clear aerial spraying isn't reliable enough for region and is unpopular with the public.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday! This will be a family-friendly rally.
