• Letter Writing Campaign Urged

Ok Wildomar, we're closer to getting our VLF funds back than any of the previous near misses of the past when Governor Brown pulled the rug out from under a bill (SB 25) that was on his desk aimed at restoring the looted money. It has a street value of $1.9 Million per year.  

Our city manager Gary Nordquist is encouraging a letter writing campaign to governor Brown. 
I have a sample letter for you. 
If you care about public safety, then this should be important to you.
All you have to do is use your own letterhead (or even just standard paper), add the current date and your name and you're set. For those that use Twitter, you can send it to Brown at his link. 

Might as well tag the mayor while you're tweeting (or whatever the tweeters call it).

Below is a letter that the Mayor wrote on behalf of the entire council. I left it in a large format so that it could be easily read. I hope it doesn't play havoc with the way your browser reads it.




You can also use other forms of delivery. 
Governor Jerry Brown
c/o State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

If you'd rather call or fax, here is that info. 

Fax:(916)558-3160

Tel:(916)445-2841 

This is the site you have to go to in order to email him.

I don't know how effective such letter writing campaigns are, but if you remember Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who you remember that it took the smallest voice in town to get through Governor Brown's thick skull. So please consider taking some time on behalf of your city, and speak up.
Every voice matters when a group is screaming at deaf people.
I really liked the other letter that Mayor Ben Benoit wrote, then tweeted to the Governor. It was brilliant on many levels. First, the layout, the wording and the jpeg was the same. Second, it's making light of his snide letter to Ben Carson about climate change (here's a link to the story if you missed it). All that was missing was a thumb drive.


Here are links to the blogs on this topic from last year.
Blog after it was vetoed

UPDATE
For the second year in a row, the governor vetoed this legislation despite the fact that it had unanimous support in both houses. The only "no" vote is the one that mattered... again.

Wildomar Rap would love to have the governor's ear... there's a 50-50 chance it could be made into a silk purse.
