dear Friends on the Good Cause Trail!
DO YOU WANT TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK DIRECTLY TO THE HORRORS AND LAWLESSNESS OF THE BUSH REGIME??
IF SO, WE ARE APPEALING TO YOU TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION NOW!!!
Tim Fitzmaurice has sponsored an agenda item for the Santa Cruz City Council meeting on July 25th, ASKING FOR A MEASURE TO BE PLACED DIRECTLY ONTO THE SANTA CRUZ CITY BALLOT IN NOVEMBER, calling for the impeachment of George Bush and Richard Cheney - the exact language is below*.
IT IS NOT AT ALL CLEAR, AT THIS TIME, THAT WE HAVE THE VOTES TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. The vote of the individual voter is the most essential building block of democracy, and we are asking to have that affirmed and used with regard to Bush and Cheney now, right here at home!
what you can do to help:
1) come to the City Council meeting next Tuesday July 25th to show you care about this - we will have a PINK RALLY at 3PM, and then go into council chambers for the hearing - the item will be heard between 3-5:30 PM
2) as an individual, and as a group if you are part of one, send an email to these addresses, asking and encouraging the City Council to support item #35 on July 25th - sample email below**:
citycouncil [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us,lcook [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us, cmathews [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us (cynthia mathews), emily reilly <ereilly [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us>, tfitzmaurice [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us (tim fitzmaurice),eporter [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us (ed porter),tmadrigal [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us (tony madrigal), mike rotkin <mrotkin [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us>, ryan coonerty <rcoonerty [at] ci.santa-cruz.ca.us>
**"I (we) respectfully request that the Santa Cruz City Council, at your meeting on July 25th, place on the November ballot a measure allowing the voters of Santa Cruz to speak directly to the call for the Impeachment of President George Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney.
The high crimes, misdemeanors, and felonies they have committed are numerous, and the results of those crimes have been egregious, catastrophic, and a national shame. Since they give no indication of changing their course or their behavior, it is intolerable to allow this to go on for two more years.
Please give the voters the chance to exercise their most powerful and essential democratic voice - to speak directly to this issue at the ballot box in November!. I (we) urge you to support item #35, and I (we) want to thank Councilmember Tim Fitzmaurice for having brought this before the public!"
signed, your group, or you!**
be creative - this is just a sample!!
It truly is important that they receive emails both from groups, and from individuals - the emails are printed out and then go into the agenda packet, so they carry lots of weight!!!!!!!!
It truly is important that we show up if we can, from 3-5PM.
For folks without email access, they can call 420-5017 and leave a message for all council members.
And broadcast this email widely!!!!!
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO DO THIS!!

*proposed ballot measure (yes or no) will read:
Should the Santa Cruz City Council, on behalf of itself and the people of the City of Santa Cruz, adopt a Resolution calling upon the United States House of Representatives to initiate proceedings for the impeachment and removal from office of President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard B. Cheney and further calling upon the California State Legislature to adopt a similar Resolution?
