Petitioning for Water, Energy & Democracy
Three Ballot Initiatives:
Opposing Desalinization in Marin,
Opposing PG&E's Prop 16,
and Favoring the California Democracy Act

Get on board with campaigns and signature gatherers working for upcoming ballot initiatives!

The "Responsible Water Initiative" gives residents of Marin Municipal Water District the right to vote on whether or not to build a controversial desalinization plant. The "desal" plant is now being fast-tracked by the MMWD Board. Adam Scow from Food and Water Watch will speak.

PG&E's Prop 16, designed to prevent local control of alternative energy, is on the June 8 ballot. Odiously, it would force any local governments that want to establish electrical service to win approval of 2/3 of their voters. Local environmental campaigners will speak.

Thirdly, Rick Massell will speak on the "California Democracy Act". This key initiative would change the state constitution: "All legislative actions on revenue and budget must be determined by a majority vote." This would end gridlock of state spending, etc. Let's do it!

Special segment: Zhenya Spake will facilitate a discussion and role play on the art of petitioning.
