Hello PB Dems! Thanks to all who attended the May 7th general membership meeting via Zoom. We had fun! For those of you who were unable to make it, we hope to see you next time.
During the meeting, we discussed political action items members can take from the safety of their own home. As promised, below please find our recommended political action items. (Please note, item V is time sensitive and should be completed Today, 5/8, if possible.)
I. PHONE BANK WITH MISSION FOR ARIZONA (Arizona Democratic Party)
V. EMAIL JEN CAMPBELL to stop funding the “smart” streetlight program (send this by the afternoon of Friday, May 8th)
email@example.com Suggested text: Dear Councilmember Campbell, Please do not vote for any additional funding for the failed “smart” streetlight program. The technology has not functioned as promised, and its use has raised serious questions about citizen’s privacy. With so many proposed budget cuts to important services such as libraries, homeless services and small business support, it is unconscionable to consider spending the mayor’s proposed $1.3 million on a project that has already cost the city $30 million. Please vote “no” on additional funding for the “smart” streetlight program!
VI. ATTEND SAN DIEGANS FOR JUSTICE'S BALLOT PROPOSAL INFO SESSION on May 16th @ 12:00-1:30pm This online session will discuss the ballot proposal to create a Commission on Police Practices, the history of police oversight in San Diego, and how you can help get it on the ballot in 2020!
