Signs are popping up all over town. Still on the fence about how you’ll cast your ballot? Why not walk across the street and chat with your neighbors? At this point, listening to politicians and their pet propagandists has probably become little more than a buzzing in your ears.
Try to tune out the droning noise of muckraking politicians.
Your choices may be limited, but the importance of your vote has never been greater. If, out of frustration, you toss your absentee ballot in the trash or go to the beach on November 6th instead of your polling place – someone who probably doesn’t think like you will win and you’ll lose.
Requiring government to conduct its business in public.
Requiring government to be accountable to voters.
Requiring government records to be accurate and accessible.
Requiring government to live within its means.
Requiring government to treat its constituents with respect.
Don’t be fooled by those who are too invested in Brea’s status quo to give up their power and authority over you.
Measures T and U weren’t written by politicians, but by everyday people just like you. Every piece of legislation has flaws. Every piece of legislation may be legally challenged in one way or another.
The potential for good in a piece of legislation is lost without the people first voting yes and making it law.
Measures T and U, by their very nature, are designed to do good for the people of Brea. It took 6,000 signatures from Brea voters to put them on the ballot and now these initiatives are being threatened by a handful of former Brea politicians who can’t face losing control.
What do you want, city officials and staff unaccountable to the people they serve or Brea’s city business conducted behind closed doors?
No. Breans want open government, limited in it’s ability to spend money on frivolous and often unnecessary pet projects and conducted by a City Council and Staff who are willing to work openly and to be held accountable by the people for their actions.
