Happy New Year


Dear STCDA Member –

Thank you for being a loyal member of Save the California Delta Alliance and helping in the fight to protect the California Delta. We appreciate your support in our continued grassroots advocacy to Save the Delta. Our goal: to provide a healthy environment where fish and wildlife can thrive, with fresh water for the Delta farms, and waterways that Delta communities, boaters, and visitors can continue to enjoy.

Policymakers do best when they know what their constituents expect. STCDA members were very active this year. You wrote to your representatives, took the bus to Sacramento, and showed up at hearings, workshops, and meetings to demand that the State policymakers step up to their responsibilities in protecting the Delta. Our legislators responded, with Jerry McNerney proposing his WEST Act in Congress, and Assemblyperson Jim Frazier established the Delta Caucus to push legislatively against the tunnels. Frazier was joined by other Northern California legislators including Sen. Glazer who spoke at our Town Hall. Having your representatives come to our Town Hall Meetings where 400-500 of you show up makes a big impact in motivating them to act in our behalf.

The Delta was plagued again this year by toxic algae and the fish populations remain at risk. The tunnels would increase those issues significantly. Next year is Governor Brown’s last year in office, and he is increasing his push for the tunnels. We are continuing to push back. When the policymakers ignore the law and our rights and move ahead, we must then take the next step and prepare legal contest, using your donations (thank you!) to hire expert witnesses to back our claims.

2018 will be a critical year in the battle. We need your help again to support our goal.

Please consider making a year-end contribution to support STCDA. With your support we can continue to be your grassroots voice for the Delta.

Peace to you and your family during this holiday season and into the new year.

Sincerely,

Jan McCleery
President, STCDA
