June Meeting

Dear Progressive Democrats of Santa Barbara,
We have found a beautiful new spot for our meeting on June 15th:
Meeting Place:  15 E. Carrillo Street (SBB&T Community Partners Center Adobe building across the street from the       bank)   You can park in the public city lot behind SBB&T—entry off Anacapa Street just around the corner next to their drive through banking kiosk)
Meeting Time:  6pm sharp (please come a little early so we can start by 6pm—5:45 suggested, since we have to vacate the building by 7:30pm)  Refreshments will be available during the meeting.
IMPORTANT AGENDA:  The Democratic Candidates for the SB City Council race will be at our meeting to present their platforms and answer our questions so we can determine which one or ones we want to endorse.
As you know, this is a critical race for our Progressive community.  Three CONSERVATIVE seats are up for grabs and we need Progressives in those seats.  It is possible that Progressive candidates with our help can replace three of the four person Conservative majority.  As you know, these four Conservatives now want to operate the council meetings behind closed doors, preventing the community from being there when issues important to their lives are being debated.  This is unacceptable and undemocratic.  Mayor Helene Schneider wants these meetings to remain transparent and open to the residents of our Progressive city.  She needs our help!  
Please come and help us take our Democratic city government back and continue the green, sustainable direction in which our city was headed BEFORE the Conservative take over.
Peace, Progress, Courage & Compassion,
Lois Hamilton & Jon Williams
PDSB Co-Chairs
