REMINDER of an event taking place this Wednesday, May 14th at Civic Park in Walnut Creek starting at 4pm (its suggested to arrive by 3:30pm):
MDEA's Mike Noce sent the following:
"Celebrate the DAY OF THE TEACHER by fighting for our kids"
"There will be a press conference /rally at the gazebo in Civic Park located in downtown Walnut Creek. The park is located next to where the old library was .We have Sen. Torlakson, Assemblymember DeSaulnier, Joe Ovick and others speaking. The focus is making our communities aware of the devastating budget cut proposals and their affect on Public Education. We are hoping to motivate our community to contact their local legislators to protect school funding and take a balanced approach to solving the budget problems. We are hoping for a large turnout. We welcome bringing signs to the event. We will also be collecting signatures on a petition and handing out bandaids to symbolize that cuts hurt."
