★Speak Out At The Board of Supervisor’s Meeting To Stop The Spraying (Fogging)★

 

 

HLET Meeting Thursday, August 21th at 9:45AM  (HLUET stands for Housing, Land Use, Environment and Transportation Committee) This is the meeting where Santa County Vector Control will give their report on the these questions.

Please speak up!


Everyone will receive 2 minutes to comment. 

Please note we will meet early at 9:45AM to talk about a strategy.  
Please arrive on time.  A friendly suggestion: You may want to focus your talk on the questions below since the Board of Supervisors  are the most interested in these questions:
 
1. First question is, is there a need, that before you undertake an effort like this, the legitimate question is, do we need to do this?

 
2. Is it effective?  Are there other ways? 

 
3. Is it safe?

 
4. Has the public been informed & engaged? 

 
5. Have we been mindful of this sensitivity of the population and I am thinking for example, of infants and elders as well as those who have preexisting medical conditions.
 
6. Does the level of concern or let rise to the level that requires this?
 
7. What are the alternatives to current practice, if any? If not, why not?
 
8. Very important, Joe asks Vector Control for the following question, “I remember this issue because I started working on this when I was here from 97 to 2000, and then, I think that as the supervisor to the fruition as an actual ordinance or policy for the county, and is your operation talking with the folks at IPM here in the county?” Are the Vector, Control and the folks at Integrated Pest Management, talking to each other? Are they coordinating?

    I get the idea that the board of supervisors and other members of our so-called government are actually there to make sure no functional governing happens.

    Is it safe? The main chemical, a petroleum distillate, is not analyzed at all except with stating that ten years of use has shown no harm. This is like the employee of this county's planning department stating hundreds of square miles sprayed near Sacramento showed no harm. Know why researchers use small organisms to test for carcinogenicity? Their short lives mean you can see effects in old age, for generations. Such a statement in the HLUET report is obfuscation and misinformation. The EPA's set of guidelines is clearly corrupt. The whole system that approves chemicals that are not revealed as to their nature or danger is violently wrong. This fantasy show, oh great and glorious Oz, might there be a sort of "man" behind the curtain who is really doing the governing?
