Wear your anti-fracking T-shirt, buttons, and bring signs! Location: Board of Supervisors' Chambers, Government Building, 168 West Alisal St, Salinas. DETAILS HERE.
The coalition was notified May 19th by the Monterey County Registrar of Voters, Claudio Valenzuela, that the measure has received enough qualifying signatures to appear on ballot for this November's presidential election.
Protect Monterey County is a coalition of residents of the Central Coast region working to pass a citizens' initiative to prevent the harmful impacts of extreme oil extraction methods. We are tired of not having any response from elected officials about our concerns about the dangers of fracking and other extreme oil recovery methods.
Help Ban Fracking!
Top petition drive volunteers gather to celebrate the qualifying of the initiative at Lynda Kamrath's home in Prunedale recently.
