****** PLEASE FORWARD *******

Greetings Humboldt Neighbor,

Do you think that local citizens have the right (and responsibility) to protect our our community?

Do you think that campaign donations by large, out-of-county corporations are undermining the integrity of local elections?

Have we got an exciting campaign for you!!!!

The Humboldt County Ordinance to Protect Our Right to Fair Elections and Local Democracy

This campaign is a citizens' initiative to prohibit outside corporations from participating in Humboldt County elections. We are local citizens collecting signatures on a volunteer basis to place this initiative on the ballot for the June 2006 election. And we need your help!

We know that large outside corporations are targeting communities like ours. These companies are trying to rewrite local laws and elect people who will work for their corporate interests instead of what is best for our community. This ordinance is necessary to protect the integrity of Humboldt County's elections, our local democracy, and our community.

The core leadership of the Humboldt Coalition for Community Rights is a broad cross-section of your friends and neighbors. We come from diverse backgrounds, but we all share a common vision that only local money should determine who represents Humboldt residents in local government. (This initiative will not affect local residents or businesses).

We believe our community has the right to protect ourselves from outside interests with deep pockets that want to transform Humboldt County to suit the needs of large corporations. We have organized a series of events to formally launch the campaign for Fair Elections & Local Democracy.

Below is a listing of initial events and opportunities for you to get involved. Just give us a call at 444-0407 and we'll get you plugged in. Don't miss the opportunity to participate in this exciting campaign for local control and democracy!
