This evening at 6:00pm, City Council will decide on the fate of the ballot petition submitted by Dan Poresky and other members of his action committee. If council approves the petition, which contains over 4,500 signatures, the scheme to privatize the water will be effectively halted.* It is essential for those who believe that the water system should remain under city operation to attend the meeting. Only your presence will convince City Council that their vote does have political consequences.

*If Council votes no, or doesn't vote, voters will be asked in May if it should appear on the ballot in November: By then, the water lease will be a done deal.
