Obama supporters at council meeting

In response to everyone's encouragement, Obama for Change SCV will issue a request to the Santa Clarita City Council in open session Tuesday, Feb. 24, asking Congressman Howard P. "Buck" McKeon to support President Obama's program for recovery.

The open letter, initiated by our group, expresses specific disappointment in McKeon's participation in the group of obstructionists in the U.S. House, and asks him to proceed with better judgment in the event of future legislation.

Our plan is to convince those on the council, who are known to be more open-minded than others on the council about such matters, to consider making such a statement about McKeon's actions and quite simply to get them to begin the discussion amongst themselves.

I will be re-forwarding the actual letter/resolution along to the group for your reference.

We will begin the festivities with a brief outline of our activities up to this time and a description of our current "Operation Gratitude" activities.
We will then present our proposed resolution to the council and probably watch some sparks fly.

Anyone available to join us is requested to come and be a part of our group.

We have been provided with signs from central (really cute with a flag on it, I promise), and everyone who comes (up to 20 people, I believe) will get to hold one of them up during our presentation.

We are hopeful of having some media coverage, and really wish to make our friendly presence felt by the council members.

The City Council meeting begins at 6 p.m., but we are not certain when the public participation portion will take place at City Hall, 23920 Valencia Blvd., Santa Clarita. See you there.
