FYI: A jeep friend sent me the following note, apparently worried about Carnegie SVRA being endangered.
Some of you may live in the voting districts mentioned and have some direct voter influence.
Try this link for the "General Plan" that preserves 4x4 activity.
Carnegie General Plan
If you live in Assembly District 16 and/or Senate District 7, (and you should know this), please contact your Legislator(s) and let them know that you want them to support the Carnegie General Plan and EIR. This needs to be done soon because it will help the OHMVR Commission to make a decision on the Plan. Legislative approval is very helpful for us.
Assembly District 16, (Alamo, Danville, Dublin, Lafayette, Livermore, Moraga, Orinda, Pleasanton, San Ramon, Walnut Creek), Assembly Member Catharine Baker: Phone 925-328-1515, email from her website, or walk-in at 2440 Camino Ramon, Suite 345 or maybe there is a local office near you.
Currently Ms. Baker is being “pounded” by the “Save Tesla Park” people trying to get her to oppose the General Plan. When contacting Ms. Baker’s office, identify yourself and give your address so that they know that you live and vote in her District. Please contact Assembly Member Baker and thank her for meeting with District Superintendent Randy Caldera concerning the Carnegie General Plan. Ask her to send a letter to State Parks/OHMVR Commission that supports the Carnegie General Plan and EIR.
Senate District 7, (Concord, Clayton Pittsburg, Antioch, Oakley, Brentwood, Bethel Island, Discovery Bay, Clayton, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Orinda, Moraga, Alamo, Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore), Senator Steven Glazer: Phone 925-942-6082, email from his website, or walk-in at 1350 Treat Blvd., Suite 240 Walnut Creek or maybe there is a local office near you. I have met with his Senior Field Representative Shareen Ram. You can contact her, she is the staff person that is dealing with Carnegie. Her email is SHAREEN.RAM@SEN.CA.GOV
Currently Senator Glazer is being “pounded by the “Save Tesla Park” people trying to get him to oppose the General Plan. Senator Glazer needs to know that there are many voters in his District that support the General Plan. When contacting Mr. Glazer’s office, identify yourself and give your address so that they know that you live and vote in his District. Please contact Senator Glazer and ask him to send a letter to State Parks/OHMVR Commission that supports the Carnegie General Plan and EIR.
If you want to personalize your request, you could add why you enjoy going to Carnegie SVRA, like the fact that it is so close to where you live. If you “ride” and you take your kids, the legislators always like to hear that.
A husband and wife can make individual contact, especially using separate phone numbers and/or email addressed. Just make sure that they each identify who they are and include their address. Ask your neighbors, friends, and co-workers that live in one or both of these two Districts to make the same contacts. They don’t have to be OHV recreationists, they just have to claim to support the Carnegie General Plan and be a constituent. The more support, the better. We have an opportunity to help get this Plan approved. If we don’t get involved, we can only blame ourselves.
