Protect Our Coast – Board of Supervisors Meeting
February 7, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm
From SLO Progressives:
“This Tuesday, Feb 7, the Board of Supervisors are submitting their resolution of opposition to the Chumash Marine Sanctuary. We must stand together and let them know that we do not accept this.
There are a few ways you can get involved. You can do any or all of these things:
1). Show up: This is VERY important. We need to fill the chambers with people, bring a friend. If you have work but can come to any part of this, we’d love to have you stand with us.
8:00-9:00am: Rally/Protest in front of the building, we will bring our signs from the demonstration/march. Please dress in blue.
9:00am-1:30pm: BoS Meeting. The Chumash Marine Sanctuary is the 3rd item on the agenda, so we will most likely be done by 10:30/11am depending on how long public comment goes.
2). Contact the Board of Supervisors:
Call and Email all three, you can do this anytime but try to complete this before Tuesday morning.

3). Speak during public comment. Using facts and being respectful will be most effective. Public comment is usually 3 minutes, but it’s shortened if there’s an overwhelming number of people requesting to speak. Please speak as an individual and not on behalf of a group unless you’ve made plans with that group.
4). Talk with your friends and tell them what’s happening, invite them to get involved to protect our coast and support the Chumash Marine Sanctuary. Help us spread awareness of this issue.”
