Our Library funding could be cut!
Jeanine McKenzie is championing a bill to cut our Library funding by 35%! Please help us by voicing your opinion and e-mailing her from the form below. We can't let this happen to our libraries and the people they serve.
I live and/or work in the Peninsula and am also a California High-Speed Rail supporter. I am alarmed that several Peninsula cities are considering officially opposing the High-Speed Rail project. I am writing today to urge you, my local government, to collaborate constructively with relevant entities to help get high-speed rail built. Like the majority of Peninsula residents, I supported the passage of Proposition 1A and believe that the planned high speed rail system is critical to the economic, environmental and transportation future of all Californians. On the Peninsula, I believe that it will enhance our quality of life, contribute to a safer high-speed rail/Caltrain corridor, reduce traffic at grade crossings and reduce noise from train horns. I am deeply concerned that even though I am part of the majority who supports high-speed rail according to a recent poll taken on the Peninsula, our voices in support for high-speed rail are getting shouted down. Along with the signers of this letter, we urge you to avoid taking any formal opposition of the High-Speed Rail project. Instead, we ask you to represent the true economic and environmental concerns of your constituents by working more constructively to ensure the project happens in a way that results in win-win outcomes for California and for our local communities.
