“The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies which serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created.”

(Calif Supreme Ct in the “Stockton” case)

The Legislature has ended but the taxes and fees they left behind need attention!

There are many local boards and committees as well that allow you input. Many often seek new members.

Most all you can contact and sign up to get their agendas and meeting dates. Be a good watch dog!
