April Fools? ...not!

The cover story in this weeks VC Reporter raised some eyebrows...

Ventura County Fairgrounds sold to Caruso Affiliated

April Fools!

Unfortunately, our letter sent yesterday, April 1st, to State Senator Roderick Wright was no joke:

SB1001 - Giveaway of Public Beaches

That's right folks, as insane as it sounds to sell off the Fairgrounds, our city has deemed it in the public interest to lease the land near the historic Ventura Pier to private developers. We disagree, and I hope if you share our concerns about this issue you too will make your voice heard:

The hearing will be April 13, 2010. Send e-mail to committee staff:

Senator Roderick Wright (Chair)
Governmental Organization Standing Committee
State Capitol, Room 5064
Sacramento, CA 95814
