|Organizer/Author||Widening Won't Work - No on Measure D|
The No on Measure D campaign in Santa Cruz County asks voters to consider the impact of big money in local politics.
During the last week of the campaign season, The No on D group, Widening Won't Work, will hold two public demonstrations in front of two of the major corporate donors to Measure D, Granite Rock Construction Company and Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Granite Rock has contributed $10,000 to the Yes on D campaign, and PAMF has contributed $25,000.
On Friday, November 4th, at noon, the No on D campaign will present a copy of the book Urban Sprawl and Public Health to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, which has contributed $25,000 to Yes on D. The book describes the enormous health impacts of automobile dependency, including injuries and deaths from collisions, chronic asthma due to air pollution, obesity and diabetes connected to the decline of walking, and the crumbling of neighborly connection due to the spatial isolation of auto-dependent communities.
Come join with placards to demonstrate against PAMF for encouraging highway widening as a way to improve one's health. Parking on Soquel Avenue and Capitola Road Extension eastward up Soquel Avenue past Harbor High.
