Ballots Have Arrived – Vote NO on 1634!
The state mailed out ballots last week, so make sure to keep an eye out for yours in your mailbox. One of the many issues on the ballot is Initiative 1634, and we urge you to vote NO. I-1634 which is almost entirely funded by the soda industry, and if passed would take away a community’s right to decide for themselves how they want to approach funding for community programs. The soda industry wrote this ballot measure to protect their profits, not our communities.
