February 5: We've added two short videos and a statement to our Bus Rider Testimonials page, so have a look at them.
NOTE: Some of our pages do not display correctly on the Internet Explorer (IE11) browser, but they should work for Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Google-Chrome and Safari.
In addition to this Home page, we have quite a few new or revised pages on our site.
The new Garage/Library tab summarizes a number of issues related to both the proposal for a new Downtown garage and a new Downtown library.
There are eight links under this tab:
In the upcoming election on March 3, 2020 (early voting by mail begins February 3), an attempt is underway to recall two progressive Santa Cruz City Council members—Chris Krohn and Drew Glover.
The Recall proponents—primarily wealthy real estate interests and developers—claim that each of these individuals is guilty of harassment, but these claims have been shown—demonstratively—to be false.
On the ballot for the City of Santa Cruz (see
this page—a little over half-way
down the page), are two questions, one for each candidate:
“Shall Drew Glover be recalled (removed) from the office of Santa Cruz City Councilmember?” and
“Shall Chris Krohn be recalled (removed) from the office of Santa Cruz City Councilmember?”
The Campaign for Sustainable Transportation (CFST) is opposed to the recalls of both Krohn and Glover, and therefore strongly urges a “NO” vote for each question.
Then each of these questions is followed by an invitation to vote for one of two “candidates to succeed [the incumbent] Councilmember if he is recalled”.
To ensure a progressive majority on our City Council should a recall succeed, CFST strongly urges every voter to vote for Tim Fitzmaurice (for Glover's seat) and Katherine Beiers (for Krohn's seat). Each of these candidates has responded to questions posed by CFST. You may read their responses here.
Gary Patton (former County Supervisor for the Third District) has just posted a column. It's entitled “Reject The Recalls: My View”. Click here to read it.
