Progressive Dems to consider “Silent Spring in Benicia?”

There has been a LOT of talk on Benicia Nextdoor about the toxic health effects of using Roundup here in Benicia.  (See Roundup is not Innocent Weed Killer and Silent Spring of East side Benicia.)

The Progressive Democrats of Benicia will offer a forum with local and regional speakers on the topic on June 11.  See information below…

NEXT MEETING – JUNE 11, 2019 – “SILENT SPRING IN BENICIA?

June 11, Tues 7:00 pm
Benicia Library
Dona Benicia room

Silent Spring in Benicia?”  Let’s talk about herbicides and pesticides.

  • Who – if anyone – is still using Roundup in Benicia?
  • What can be done to stop it?

We will have brief reports by a representative from the City of Benicia and a representative from Benicia Unified School District, and we hope to have someone from Solano County.  Bring your concerns and questions!

Expert speakers will include:

We will also hear from Sustainable Solano about alternatives to glyphosate products.

Hope to see you there!

    Repost from Progressive Democrats of Benicia
    [Editor: Rep. Thompson continues to impress me with his strong record of support on progressive issues across the board.  Watch the video for his views on gun violence prevention, the Green New Deal / global warming, health care, taxes / economic inequality, immigration, and more.  – R.S.]
