For those of you who are working to make our fair city a better place to live, there are a few concrete actions that can help the cause. WRITE LETTERS AND ATTEND MEETINGS! Making your presence and concerns public can be a big help.

There is going to be a city workshop meeting where citizens can voice their concerns/suggestions on Wednesday, Jan 23, 2pm. Download the agenda here: https://www.ci.oceanside.ca.us/civica/filebank/blobdload.asp?BlobID=29966. Please come. They city council will pay more attention to community input IF THERE IS SOME!

We need to attend SANDAG meetings to let them know our council majority has usurped the mayor's power to serve their own ends and those of their campaign contributors. The next meeting will be held Friday, Jan 25, 2013 at 9 am to 12 noon at the SANDAG board room 402 B St, 7th floor, San Diego. Please review the agenda here: http://www.sandag.org/uploads/meetingid/meetingid_3480_15451.pdf

The landfill at Gregory canyon is going to placed over a water source that the city of Oceanside uses. Once the landfill lining leaks, or if a rain event causes pollution to overtop the landfill, it will destroy our only local clean water source. We will have to completely rely on outside water, which is very expensive. Once a water source is polluted, it is gone forever! Please write to the army corp of engineers to urge them not to approve this project. Attend the meeting on January 31 at 6pm in the Escondido Center for the Arts 340 Escondido Blvd. Escondido, CA 92025

Or, write a letter.
