TODAY! Voice Your California Forever Concerns – In Person

From Solano Together message, sent June 24, 2024

TODAY, June 25, at 2 p.m., the Solano County Board of Supervisors will convene to discuss California Forever’s East Solano Plan. At this meeting, the Board of Supervisors can adopt the Initiative, order a 30-day study, or put the Initiative on the ballot. Attendees will have the opportunity for a public comment and we ask you to urge the Board to conduct a 30-day study of the Initiative.

Our coalition will show up strong and we urge you to do the same and voice your concerns and opposition to the California Forever/East Solano Plan. Here is how you can do it.
